Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) and Sheriff Donna Hanscum (Brianna Buckmaster) were Supernatural fan favorites before Season 10's "Hibbing 911", but it was that episode that launched a spinoff idea that spread through the fandom.
Dubbed the Wayward Daughters, a play on Kansas' "Carry On Wayward Son" which has become synonymous with the Winchester brothers, Jody and Donna became the dream team everyone wanted to become reality. The fact that Rhodes and Buckmaster had become fast friends and ran with the "Wayward Daughters" idea to both empower women and raise money for charitable organizations only helped cement the movement as a much-beloved part of the fandom.
That enthusiasm on the part of the fans and the Supernatural cast and crew led to a backdoor pilot called "Wayward Sisters" written by Supernatural producer Andrew Dabb and writer Robert Berens that expanded the Wayward idea to include not just Jody and Donna, but a group of women who've all lost loved ones and family to supernatural elements.
Jody Mills had previously taken in Claire Novak (Kathryn Newton) and Alex Jones (Katherine Ramdeen), and will also be fostering psychic Missouri Moseley’s granddaughter Patience Turner (Clark Backo) and Kaia (Yadira Guevara-Prip), who we'll meet in episode 13.9 "The Bad Place".
The episode, which airs January 18, will not only be a backdoor pilot for a potential Wayward Sisters spinoff series but the culmination of a fan-led movement to create a new show in the Supernatural universe. One where the ladies do all the demon-killing.
Now we just need to know what song will become the "Wayward Sisters" anthem.
