The CW’s upcoming reboot of the Chuck Norris classic show “Walker, Texas Ranger” will have plenty of LGBT issues to explore.

Keegan Allen of “Pretty Little Liars” has joined the cast as Liam Walker, a gay conservative brother of the lead character.

The actor will star alongside Jared Padalecki and Lindsey Morgan, the former playing lawman Cordell Walker.

“Described as smart, slightly smug, but with a strong moral compass, Liam is Walker’s younger gay and conservative brother who has been recently promoted to assistant DA,” Variety reported Wednesday. “Liam and Walker are close, but Liam gives his brother no shortage of tough love.”

The series will focus on Cordell Walker’s return to family life after having spent two years undercover.



“Walker” is produced by CBS Television Studios.
