Highly anticipated Supernatural spinoff series, WAYWARD SISTERS on the CW Network has bolstered its cast with some fan favorites.
Popular Supernatural cast members which now comprise the core cast of Wayward Sisters, Briana Buckmaster, Kathryn Newton and Katherine Ramdeen from the original series have closed deals to join the proposed Supernatural spinoff toplined by fellow Supernatural standout Kim Rhodes.
Also cast is young actress Clark Backo (Designated Survivor), who would play a newly created character.
Wayward Sisters, from a quartet of Supernatural writers-producers — showrunners Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer as well as Phil Sgriccia, Robert Berens — tells the story of Sheriff Jody Mills (Rhodes) and a group of troubled young women — all orphaned by supernatural tragedy — these “wayward sisters” emerge as a formidable force against the supernatural, under Mills’s training and protection. Unlike the original series, which centers on biological brothers, Wayward Sisters is about a sisterhood of girls in a foster family.
Lending Jody a hand will be series fan-favorite Sheriff Donna Hanscum (Buckmaster), a relative novice to the hunter’s life, but a close friend who Jody can confide in.
Newton will reprise her role as orphan Claire Novak, who was introduced to the supernatural world when her father became the vessel for the angel Castiel (Misha Collins). Now, a gifted hunter, she lives with Jody, but struggles against her rules.
Ramdeen is runaway Alex Jones, who had been put under Jody’s care. She was rescued by the Winchesters from a family of vampires who used her as a lure for unsuspecting humans. Traumatized by the violence, she has resolved not to hunt…until a threat emerges in Sioux Falls that threatens her new family.
The Wayward Sisters spinoff idea was the result of a grassroots fan effort that started two years ago, soon after Bloodlines, the first proposed Supernatural spinoff, did not go forward. The idea had been embraced by some of the Supernatural actresses who have supported the effort on social media.
We’ll be keeping a close eye on this project which we really hope comes to fruition.
