EW can exclusively reveal that Yadira Guevara-Prip will recur on season 13 of Supernatural as Kaia Nieves, and should the backdoor pilot for Wayward Sistersget picked up to series, she will become a regular on the spin-off.
Nieves is the most recent addition to the Wayward Sisters cast, which already includes Kathryn Love Newton (Claire Novak), Katherine Ramdeen (Alex Jones), Kim Rhodes (Jody Mills), Briana Buckmaster (Donna Hanscum), and Clark Back (Patience Turner). Set in the world of Supernatural, Wayward Sisters is about a group of troubled women — Claire, Alex, Kaia, and Patience — who have all been orphaned by supernatural tragedy. Led by prodigal daughter Claire and under the training of Jody and Donna, the “wayward sisters” band together to fight the supernatural.
As for Kaia, her character description reveals she lost her family at a young age. By the time she reached adulthood, she was on her own, completely disconnected from her roots, as she tried to understand a burgeoning gift: In her dreams, Kaia walks between worlds — a rare and terrifying power she experiences only as a curse… a power she doesn’t understand and can’t yet control. Flinty, sarcastic, and profoundly haunted, Kaia is nevertheless strong and willful as hell — she’s had to be to survive this long on her own.
The backdoor pilot for Wayward Sisters will air during Supernatural‘s upcoming 13th season.
