It seems Supernatural can’t expand its universe beyond the Winchesters with the CW passing up on its latest spin-off, Wayward Sisters.
Misha Collins, who plays Castiel on Supernatural, says the Wayward Sisters cast will still have a place on the primary show, according to Entertainment Weekly.
“I would love to see Wayward go forward, but I also know that there’s a great back-up which is that all of those characters are alive and well and there’s a place for them in the ‘Supernatural’ universe. We would love to see any and all of the Wayward Sisters back in action on Supernatural.”
The show features franchise favorites Claire Novak (Kathryn Newton), daughter of Jimmy Novak, whose body is occupied by Castiel; and Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes), one of the longest surviving hunters on Supernatural. Joining them are Patience Turner (Clark Backo), a woman who possessed psychic abilities; and Sheriff Donna Hanscrum (Briana Buckmaster).
The show received support from other members of the original cast.
“Selfishly, I’m split,” Jensen Ackles, who plays Dean Winchester said. “I’d love to see these girls go and tell this amazing story, I’d love to help them do that. But at the same time, I want to keep those characters in our world. I don’t want to let them go; they’re amazing characters. They’re fan favorites and they’re cast favorites, so there’s a reason that they got that opportunity and I think it just goes to show how great they are and how valuable they are to us.”
This wasn’t the first spin-off attempted by creator Eric Kripke as his attempt to launch Supernatural: Bloodlines in 2014. A backdoor pilot was integrated into Supernatural’s ninth season, but the CW also passed on the show about warring factions between hunters and monsters set in Chicago. The showed starred Lucien Laviscount, Stephen Martines, Erinn Westbrook, and Sean Faris.
