Get ready for the new daily show

Bad Boys and Supernatural TV spinoffs dead before they even had a shot…

It looks like a few shows, like Tremors: The Series, have been scrapped before they even got a chance to find their feet.

It’s always sad when this happens, but there’s not much can be done about it, sadly.

Firstly, the one people were looking forward to, Wayward Sisters, the Supernatural spinoff  based on a one-off episode:

The Wayward Sisters are a group of orphaned young women led by Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) who will emerge as a force against the supernatural.

Joining Mills will be Sheriff Donna Hanscum (Briana Buckmaster), Claire Novak (Kathryn Newton), Alex Jones (Katharine Ramdeen), and newcomer Patience Turner (Clark Backo), a high schooler who discovers she’s a powerful psychic.

However, The CW decided not to pursue the series.

Writer Robert Berens broke the news on Twitter:

Next up was the Bad Boys spinoff series LA’s Finest which would focus on the sister of Martin Lawrence’s character in the movies.

Anyway, it’s been cancelled, despite costing a fortune to make the first episode:

LA’s Finest was one of the most expensive pilots this season, with its budget said to be around $12 million. It follows the Special Agent Syd Burnett character played by Union in 2003’s Bad Boys II movie as she moves to Los Angeles and joins the LAPD. In the pilot, written by Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier and directed by Anton Cropper, the free-spirited former DEA agent Burnett has a fresh start in her new job as an LAPD detective. She’s partnered with Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom who can’t help but look at Syd’s freedom with some grass-is-greener envy. These two have totally different lifestyles and approaches, but they both are at the top of their fields in this action-packed, character-driven procedural.

So there you have it, dead before they even got a chance.

Maybe for the best? Let us know your thoughts…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
