The CW may have decided to pass on a spinoff series for its long-running hit Supernatural, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be seeing the Wayward Sisters soon.
With the pilot for the Wayward Sisters spinoff officially dead, Supernatural showrunner Andrew Dabb said they’ve mapped out Season 14 of the mothership series to make sure there’s ample room to include the Wayward characters (Kim Rhodes’ Jody, Kathryn Newton’s Claire, Briana Buckmaster’s Donna, etc.) in the narrative along the way.
“All of the characters are going to make their return one way or the other,” Dabb told Entertainment Weekly. “We found a way to fold [them] organically into the plot line, and some of the hanging chads from the pilot last year ended up dovetailing nicely with some of the stuff Michael’s looking to do, and some of the stuff that’s going on in our world just generally. It all folds together pretty well, but they’ll definitely be in multiple episodes this season.”
No word on exactly how those characters will fit in moving forward, but its easy to imagine Sam and Dean turning to some of their closest allies when things go bad (as they always do). Plus, who knows — there was a lot of enthusiasm around the idea of a Wayward Sisters spinoff before the network passed. If these seeded appearances do well, there’s always the chance The CW could dust off the idea in a future pilot season (especially since the network recently added an extra night of programming).
Regardless, its great news for fans to see there’s still a place for these fan favorite characters moving forward.
Supernatural’s 14th season premieres Oct. 11 on The CW.
