This summer we reported that ‘Wayward Sisters’, a spin-off of ‘Supernatural’, was in the works, but we haven’t heard much since, until today. We now have an update thanks to EW.
Writer-producers Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer join Phil Sgriccia and Robert Berens as both showrunners and executive producers.
According to the site, it all begins when Claire (Kathryn Love Newton) who returns to Jody Mills’ (Kim Rhodes) house. “Claire went out, she kicked ass on her own, but a crisis will occur that will force her back into the fold of the ‘Wayward’ family,” Berens explains.
“Home” will be a big part of the new series. Unlike in ‘Supernatural’ which involves constant travel, “Wayward Sisters” will remain mostly in the town of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
When Claire returns to Jody’s, she discovers a new psychic named Patience (Clark Backo), granddaughter of Missouri Moseley (Loretta Devine). “[Jody] is constantly saying, ‘My door is always open,’ and she does it again in Episode 3 of this season, where we meet Patience,” Rhodes says.
As for the other cast members, we have Sheriff Donna Hanscum (Briana Buckmaster), Alex (Katherine Ramdeen) the first girl Jody too in, Kaia (Yadira Guevara-Prip), a girl with the ability to walk between worlds in her dreams.
[Kaia]’s not sure who she can trust, but she starts to form certain bonds and relationships that make it clear that this is the place she needs to be.”She has a strong bond with Claire, who saves Kaia’s life when they first come into contact. “She wants to keep Kaia safe,” Newton said. “It’s really important to her, and you’ll find out why.”
Will we see a ‘Supernatural’ Cross-over? Possibly, but Sam and Dean Winchester will not be regulars on ‘Wayward Sisters’. “It’s made very clear why this is happening without Sam and Dean, although there’s a beautiful opportunity for them to come visit.” Rhodes states.
