For 12 years, Supernatural fans have had the Winchester Brothers as they save people and hunt things in the family business. Recently, we’ve heard about a new Supernatural spinoff series called the Wayward Sisters that will kick off with a backdoor pilot aired as an episode of Supernatural during the upcoming 13th season. The cast so far looks like this: Kim Rhodes (Sheriff Jody Mills, a hunter and longtime friend of the Winchesters and current guardian of Claire and Alex), Briana Buckmaster (Sheriff Donna Hanscum, a fan favorite who has appeared in a few Supernatural episodes because of her popularity), Kathryn Newton (orphan Claire Novak, the orphaned daughter of Jimmy Novak who became the vessel for angel Castiel) and Katherine Ramdeen (runaway Alex Jones, rescued by the Winchesters from a family of vampires who used her as a lure for unsuspecting humans) from the original series. It was just announced recently that Clark Backo (Designated Survivor) has also been cast as an entirely new character.
Here is the synopsis of the show:
Wayward Sisters 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 a biological brothers, Wayward Sisters is about a sisterhood of girls in a foster family.
Backo’s character is Patience Turner, a newcomer to the Wayward Sisterhood. She is a high school over-achiever, but her life is turned upside down when she discovered she has powerful psychic abilities. She inherited the gift from her estranged grandmother (and season one Supernatural character), Missouri Moseley (the psychic who helped the boys hunt down their MIA father). As she is hunted by strange forces for her power, Patience finds solace with Jody and her wayward family.
