After watching the Winchester Brothers tear things up for 13 years, Supernatural is going to be giving some other characters the spotlight. That's right, The CW is moving forward with a spin-off series.
According to Deadline, the network is moving forward with a spin-off that focuses on the character of Jody Mills, played by Kim Rhodes. The series will be called Wayward Sisters, and it will focus on a band of woman - led by Mills - who work together to fight monsters and supernatural beings.
The report states that an episode of Supernatural's 13th season will act as the pilot for Wayward Sisters, and the show will head solo after that.
Here's the synopsis for Wayward Sisters, as released with Deadline's initial report:
The project tells the story of Sheriff Jody Mills (Rhodes) and a group of troubled young women, all of them orphaned by supernatural tragedy. Under Mills’ training and protection, these women will emerge as a supreme monster-fighting force. Unlike the original series, which centers on a biological brothers, Wayward Sisters is about a sisterhood of girls in a foster family.
As of now, Rhodes is the only actress currently on Supernatural that's slated to appear in the series. However, as talks continue, it's likely that more will follow. With the pilot of the series taking place in a Supernatural episode, it's likely that Sam and Dean could crossover from time to time.
With this announcement, it looks like The CW will have more than one connected TV universe at its disposal. No premiere date has been scheduled at this time.
