‘Supernatural’ Spinoff ‘Wayward Sisters’ Starring Kim Rhodes Set As Backdoor Pilot For Season 13 Of the CW Series
It’s a well deserved show for a passionate fan base that has been clamoring for a spinoff for a very long time. It seems fitting that long time season guest and fan favorite Kim Rhodes takes the lead in a new chapter of Supernatural.
According to Deadline:
The project — which is being developed as a planted spinoff and will have a backdoor pilot airing as an episode of Supernatural‘s upcoming 13th season — 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. The spinoff hails from a quartet of Supernatural writers-producers, showrunners Andrew Dabb and Robert Singer as well as Phil Sgriccia, Robert Berens. Warner Bros. TV, which produces Supernatural, is the studio. The CW and WBTV declined comment.

I think the big take away for me (as an SPN fan), is that Robert Berens will be writing the backdoor pilot. Keep your fingers crossed and pray to Chuck that we will get a show that resembles the world of Supernatural.
