I’m heartbroken that the CW did not pick up Wayward Sisters for next year. This decision doesn’t make much sense to me. The backdoor pilot received intensely great reviews as well as gave it’s parent show a huge ratings bump when it aired.
Furthermore, it continues to trend on Twitter on at #5 since the announcement. This show has a built-in, already fiercely loyal fanbase. It makes no sense that this show wasn’t picked up.
Unless you factor into the equation that it was the only all female led cast – even Charmed can’t boast that it’s only female.
I think rather than take a chance that would have paid off big time over the next several years, the CW decided to continue doing the same old thing. I have to say, that I really think that its reasons for not picking of Wayward Sisters has everything to do with its diversity and nothing to do with how well the show would done.
The backdoor pilot rocked. It was fucking fantastic, and everyone knows it. Now everyone knows that the CW doesn’t give a shit about quality. Although, anyone watching a preview for an episode of the new Dynasty already knows that quality isn’t high on the CW’s list, currently.
The possibility of this show gave so many people hope for a better future, even if it is was only through a television show. It’s heartbreaking and cruel that with the work of so many fans behind it, the CW decided to not go with it.
But hey, I’m clearly not their target demographic. I can’t express how angry and disappointed I am in the faceless douches at the CW. Bad decision, and clearly, one motivated from misogyny. Screw you, CW. Screw you.
