Supernatural: Bloodlines may be dead.
But the idea of a Supernatural spinoff is not.
Following the reveal of The CW fall schedule, President Mark Pedowitz jumped on a conference call with reporters and took a few minutes to explain why two shows are NOT included on his network's 2014-2015 lineup.
"We believe there is a really good brand in Supernatural. We felt the Supernatural [spin-off pilot Bloodlines] didn’t quite get there," he said of the series whose backdoor pilot was not well received by fans a couple weeks ago.
But Pedowitz did make it clear: "We know we want to develop... Supernatural spinoff for next season."
The executive also addressed his decision to renew Beauty and the Beast for a third season, while canceling The Tomorrow People.
"We’ve always said we’re a very different style of broadcast network,” he said, explaining BATB has more social engagement and international appeal than The Tomorrow People.
“We have situations where shows like Beauty have created upside potential … it’s a fan favorite it has a great international [interest]. Primarily, The Tomorrow People was a great show... [it] just didn’t have the same level of social engagement or digital side that Beauty and the Beast gets."
