Throughout the fourteen seasons of ‘Supernatural’, the Winchester brothers have fought a great number of evils. But they haven’t fought them alone. They have always had help and this has allowed us an introduction to some badass characters whom we’d like to see more of. Jody Miller becomes a pivotal point when it comes to putting together such a team, and considering how she has acted as the saviour for the brothers, it only makes sense that the next generation of hunters would be under her wing. When the foster family of Jody had shaped up, fans began to wonder about the individual story of this group of odd people saving people and hunting things.
This idea soon gained momentum and the showrunners were made to consider this possibility. ‘Wayward Sisters’ is the spin-off that picks up the stories of these women where the Winchesters left off. The tenth episode of the thirteenth season acted as a backdoor pilot and the series was put into work.
Wayward Sisters Cast: Who’s in It?
Most of the characters in ‘Wayward Sisters’ have already appeared a number of times over the fourteen seasons of ‘Supernatural’. The cast is led by Kim Rhodes, who plays the role of Jody Miller, the sheriff of Sioux Falls. Jody first appeared in the fifth season, in the episode that dealt with people coming back from the grave. After her character becomes acquainted with the work of the Winchesters, she becomes a frequent collaborator with them. Miller has appeared in every season since and is the most often recurring character. Apart from her role in the show, Rhodes is known for her work in ‘Suite Life of Zach and Cody’, ‘Ashes to Ashes’, ‘Another World as the World Turns’ and ‘The Suite Life on Deck’.
Kathryn Newton plays the role of Claire Novak. Claire’s character was first introduced in the fourth season of ‘Supernatural’ as the daughter of Jimmy Novak, the human vessel for the angel, Castiel. She returns seven years later when Castiel decides to look her up and find out how she is doing. Claire’s character arc of a troubled teenager brings her to the attention of the Winchesters who leave her in care of Jody. Claire learns to become a hunter and the last time we saw her, she had already been excelling at it.
