Kim Rhodes (Jody Mills, Supernatural) and Briana Buckmaster (Donna Hanscum, Supernatural) have had fans of all things “Wayward” in a frenzy since October 1, 2018, when they simultaneously posted a photo of the two of them holding a sign with WAYWARD written on it.
Speculation ran wild and was only increased as Buckmaster and Rhodes continued posting more photos using the hashtag #WaywardWorld. It’s been three weeks full of guessing and hoping since the first photo dropped, but now we know exactly what they were hinting at.
Entertainment Weekly just announced that Buckmaster and Rhodes will be launching “The Wayward Podcast”. The podcast will feature the two women talking about their lives, as their perspectives as women. They already have a teaser up, which you can listen to here. EW also noted that Billy Moran from Louden Swain created the theme song for the podcast.
They tease that the first episode will launch next week, and the series will be weekly.
If you are not already aware, a back door pilot called “Wayward Sisters” 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). In May, it was announced that The CW decided not to send the show to series.
Fans were absolutely devastated and they did everything they could to ensure their feelings were made clear. A flood of Tweets, trending parties, and countless articles ensued, and a petition was launched that now has more than 80,000 signatures. Fans were encouraged by Rhodes and Buckmaster to make our voices heard, and it looks like we did just that.
We’re so excited to follow Briana and Kim on this new journey!
