While speaking to TVLine at the TV Upfronts today, CW President Mark Pedowitz spoke about why the network decided to pass on the Supernatural spin-off Wayward Sisters.

He said: “We are big fans of the characters and the women who played those characters… We hope they continue on as guest stars on Supernatural… But we did not feel creatively that the show was where we wanted it to be. And we felt we had a better shot with [Originals spinoff] Legacies.

The series would have focused on Sheriff Jody Mills (played by Kim Rhodes) and her surrogate daughters Claire Novak (Kathryn Newton) and Alex Jones (Katherine Ramdeen) as they battled supernatural evil in Sioux Falls, S.D.

When he revealed the show was cancelled, co-writer Andrew Dabb said: “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.
