Friends, this week has not been a great week for geekdom. With mass show cancellations, including Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Expanse, Lucifer, another now joins the pile – but this one before arriving. Wayward Sisters, the Supernatural spinoff series set to feature female leads, was passed on by The CW. According to Deadline, the two years of work put into the show was all for not.
Co-creator of the series Andrew Dabb revealed the sad news on Twitter. “It breaks my heart to say this, but the network has chosen to pass on Wayward Sisters,” he started the series of tweets. “We love these characters, and have spent almost two years trying to make this show a reality on the network… but there are some fights, sometimes, you can’t win.” He continued on, thanking the crew and the cast and fans for all their support.
The show aired a “back-door” pilot back in January. It featured Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) and a group of women who rise up from their tragedy to become monster fighting machines. And unlike the brother-duo of the original series, this focused on a more sisterhood dynamic of many women. And for female fans of Supernatural looking for more out of this universe, this is a sad day. It seemed destined to succeed, with showrunners, producers and writers of the original series. But alas, it seems it will not come to pass. At least the characters live on in the show!
