Hunh!

I don't know why they haven't picked it up. Most seemed to think it was a sure bet. I wonder what happened. Maybe they think the bloom is off the SpN rose....

Me too. I was looking forward to having a new show. ;(

I was looking forward to more of the girls.

I thought it was a sure thing, too. I'm shocked, and very disappointed. I don't get why they didn't want Wayward Sisters, it had so much support from the fans. *sigh*

It had a lot of fan support. I'm sad it didn't get to show us what it could do. Plus, how many shows had two older female leads in what wasn't a comedy?

It sucks! I mean, it had some problems but it had a lot of possibilities.

I'm disappointed - I liked all the actresses and it was nice they planned to pair the two older mentors, Jody and Donna, with the girls. I gather it was ditched for some Vampire diaries reboot. So sick of vampire shows!

I hope that the loss of that show doesn't mean they've dropped support for Supernatural. I was looking forward to seeing what they did with it.

I'm betting it has to do with Kathryn Newton, at least in part. They put her on the forefront of Wayward Sisters, yet in the meantime her career has been taking off. She was in two movies that were nominated for Best Picture at the 2018 Oscars, albeit in minor roles. Her latest movie, Blockers, has received pretty good reviews, and she's one of the main characters there. She's also been in a couple of different TV shows/productions recently, and has two more movies in post-production right now. I read an interview with her a few months back where she never even mentioned SPN or Wayward Sisters. My guess would be that she wasn't interested in signing up as a main character for a TV show anymore, as it would hurt her chances of being in more movies.

This is all speculation on my part, but it's what makes sense to me, as it looked like the Wayward Sisters backdoor pilot was pretty well received.

Kathryn Newton got way too famous for the network and the show needed at least one person with any kind of starpower as a draw because it was never going to bring viewers outside of SOME of the Supernatural audience (which is not big enough to hold up a rookie show). They were very smart to pass on it without her and she would have been an absolute fool to derail her career by prioritizing this project.

Hello Darlin'!
Oh. I have seen her mentioned more outside of the Show, and have seen her name connected with a few major projects.

I'm sorry that they didn't try and fill her shoes in some way. When the pilot was talked about, she wasn't as well-known. I think they could very well have taken chances--neither of the stars of SpN were all that well known outside of teenage dramas except Jared. I think Gilmore Girls had more recognition than the shows Jensen was on...though I have to admit I'm not completely sure about that because I didn't watch any of the shows the boys were on except for SV and Dark Angel, and I wasn't watching either of those steadily at the time.

RE: Hello Darlin'!
Ah, I'm sorry you were disappointed by the news. I personally was thrilled. I do think the network made a smart business choice on passing, my own feelings aside, without KN.

It's possible the CW/WB didn't want something puling ratings from a show they know is a sure bet for their ratings (spn)
