The CW Boss on Why a ‘Supernatural’ Spinoff May Never Happen, ‘Riverdale’ Plans & the ‘Dynasty’ Twist
Let’s put it this way,the “Scoobynatural” episode may be the closest we get to a Supernatural spinoff.
The CW President Mark Pedowitz, at long last, admitted what so many of us have been thinking today when he addressed the press at the Television Critics Association in Beverly Hills. When asked about why Wayward Sisters, the backdoor pilot from last season, didn’t go to series, Pedowitz stated “we were very happy with the women who were in the Wayward Sisters spinoff… [but] it just did not get there. Supernatural may be Jensen and Jared. There may not be a franchise beyond that.”
Additionally, Pedowitz promised that Nicollette Sheridan would “be with the show for as long as it goes” and that yes, the recent royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had not gone unnoticed by the writers. “Somewhere in everyone’s minds is the Moldavian moment,” he laughed of our chance to see the new version’s take on the O.G. Dynasty‘s silliest storyline.
Finally, Riverdale. With The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina going to Netflix, Pedowitz — who encouraged creator Robert Aguirre-Sacasa to “go with God” once the streaming service gave him a two-year commitment upfront — admitted that there were ideas for a CW spinoff from the hit being discussed, but that nothing was in development as of yet.
May we suggest a prequel series with the horrible parents as horrible teens? Or Afterlife with Archie, since they already have all the undead makeup at iZombie.
