‘Supernatural’ fans haven’t seen the last of the Wayward Sisters! In a recent interview, showrunner Andrew Dabb revealed that the Wayward Sisters will come into play in Season 14 in some unexpected ways. Jody Mills, played by Kim Rhodes, in particular returns under very particular circumstances. Dabb said:
“[Jody is investigating] a mysterious death, when it turns out that she and Sam and Dean are looking for the same person. That involves her in a case that has pretty big repercussions, Wayward-wise, going forward.”
According to Dabb, the ultimate goal is to bring everyone back in a way that feels natural and fits with the rest of the show. He said:
“We’re also going to see Donna later this season. And our hope is, toward the back half of the season, to see everyone together in a plotline that we think dovetails very nicely with our ‘Supernatural’ storyline for the season. We’re not, like, taking a detour into Wayward world. [We’re] taking some of those characters who we love so much, and some of the ideas, and folding them into Sam and Dean’s story.”
The Wayward Sisters landed a pilot in the most recent season of ‘Supernatural.’ Fans were excited to see the female-led ensemble land a series of their own, and when it was not picked up by the CW, a petition earned over 50,000 signatures in an attempt to revive the idea. While the characters will be preserved within the ‘Supernatural’ series, some fans may be disappointed with that outcome.
Jensen Ackles, who stars as Dean Winchester in the series, explains that he is happy to see the Sisters return. He said:
“Selfishly, I’m split. I’d love to see these girls go and tell this amazing story, and 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.”
Misha Collins, who plays Castiel, echoed his sentiments, saying:
“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.’”
Fans will get their Wayward fix when ‘Supernatural’ returns on Thursday, October 11th at 8/7c on The CW.
