According to Deadline, our Supernatural prayers have been answered! For too long female fans of Supernatural have wanted more focus on the strong, complicated, badass women of the show like Jody, Claire, Alex, and Donna. Now we’re finally getting that in the new spinoff, Wayward Sisters!
The spinoff stars Kim Rhodes, fan favorite Sheriff Jody Mills, and a group of orphaned young women who have been victims of the supernatural. Like Supernatural they will focus on strong familial bonds. Jody will train and protect these women and help them take back the control they’ve lost in their lives while battling the supernatural.
The pilot is set for Season 13 of Supernatural and acts as a backdoor pilot to the show. It’s expected to have fan favorites returning like Claire Novak and Alex Jones, who have practically become Jody’s daughters throughout the Supernatural run. Also a great fit would be Sheriff Donna Hanscum, who has had adventures on her own and with Jody in the past.
Wayward Sisters is set to be executively produced by Andrew Dabb, Robert Singer, Phil Sgriccia, and Robert Berens, Writing will be done by Berens and Dabb.
And while The CW has been looking for a spinoff for a while (anyone remember Bloodlines?) the popularity of this concept is due in part to the grassroots fan effort of dedicated fans and Wayward Daughters. This group of amazing women have been supporting each other for a while now have blossomed into a wonderful community of women who want to see themselves represented on screen in positive ways. (Plus those Wayward AF shirts are fantastic!)
Show them some love here! And while you’re at show Kim Rhodes and The CW how much you love this idea and are looking forward to Wayward Sisters!
