The CW Says No Wayward – We Say No Way.
Do you hear that sound? That’s the sound of millions of anger-filled hearts breaking in unison all over the world. Andrew Dabb announced today on Twitter that The CW Network has made the unfathomable decision not to pick up Wayward Sisters for a new series.
It breaks my heart to say this, but CW has chosen to pass on Wayward Sisters. We love these characters, and have spent almost two years trying to make this show a reality on the network… but there are some fights, sometimes, you can’t win.

The back door pilot aired in January as the tenth episode of season 13 of the incredibly popular CW series Supernatural. Wayward Sisters was well received by critics and worshiped by fans. The episode starred well loved returning characters Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes), Donna Hanscum (Briana Buckmaster), Claire Novak (Kathryn Newton), Alex Jones (Katherine Ramdeen), Patience Turner (Clark Backo) and Kaia Nieves (Yadira Guevara-Prip).
The pilot ended on a heart-stopping cliffhanger that left fans salivating for a resolution that so far hasn’t been resolved in the rest of the Supernatural series. Many fans have been relentless in their pursuit of getting Wayward Sisters picked up. Knowing that it would be announced one way or another in May, it’s gained even more traction in these past eleven days, and The CW has been tagged on Twitter on an almost constant basis of pleading from the fans.
Sadly, it looks like our wishes did not come true.
But in case you are new here – let me tell you something about the fans of the stars of Wayward Sisters. The fans of these women are strong-minded, loudly opinionated, get ‘er done kind of fans. These fans are absolutely not going to sit by idly and watch something that has changed as many lives as Wayward has just end without a fight. These fans are a culmination of the women who star in the show, and we’re not about to let them down.
So this is our call to you, the fans of Wayward: It’s time to rally the troops.
For every one of us who has struggled with our appearance or our identity, for every one of us that has been criticized for the volume of our voice or the size of our body, for every one of us who has been told that we cannot do something when we know we can, and every one of us who has been told that we are not enough when we damn well are – let us all take this moment to be loud!
Shout it from the rooftops. Tweet it out in all caps and tell the stars, tell the network, and tell the world what Wayward means to you. Let’s show them all that we are the meaning of Wayward and that we’re not going to let this go without a fight.
We’ve still got work to do. 💪🏻
