Jared Padalecki’s Walker star leaving show for “personal reasons” in season 2

The 100’s Lindsey Morgan, who stars alongside Supernatural’s Jared Padalecki on the CW’s Walker series, will be leaving the show during season two for “personal reasons”.

Morgan has played Micki Ramirez on the show since it first aired, and though she will appear in a number of season two episodes, she will be written out as a series regular later on.

In a statement to Deadline, Morgan said: “After much thoughtful consideration and introspection, I have made the incredibly difficult decision to step away from my role as Micki Ramirez on Walker for personal reasons, and I am eternally grateful to have the support of the producers, CBS studios and The CW in allowing me to do so.”

“The opportunity to play Micki has truly been a blessing, as has working alongside the incredible cast and crew of this terrific series. Please know that I will continue to root for my TV family and wish them all the best,” she continued.

Padalecki lent his support to Morgan, saying: “Lindsey is a wonderful person, inside and out. I am proud of, and grateful for, her work on Walker. Moreover, I’m honoured to consider her a friend.”

Walker sees Texas Ranger Cordell Walker, a widower and father of two with a specific moral code, return to Austin after being undercover for two years and joins Morgan’s character as his new partner. Micki is one of the first women in Texas Rangers’ history, and season two sees her going deep undercover, prompting worry from Walker.

A joint statement from the CW and CBS studios explained that they respected and supported “Morgan’s decision to step away from her role as a series regular” and hinted that Morgan could come back to Walker in the future for guest appearances. They said, “We will, of course, leave the door open for ‘Micki’ to return.”
