The women cast for Wayward Sisters have to move on. Kathryn Newton is one of the first to land a big role, securing a place in Netflix’s Lord of the Flies-style series.

With Wayward Sisters not getting picked up, the cast have to look at other projects. It’s the business of showbiz. Kathryn Newton, who plays Claire Novak in Supernatural, is taking on a new role in Netflix’s Lord of the Flies-style drama series, which is yet to get a name. However, a little about her character is known.

Newton will play Allie in the 10-episode series. She’s the one who becomes the leader of a mysterious teenage underworld. Constantly living in the shadow of her older sister, Kim, she encourages Kim to take the lead role. Kim is still to be cast in the series. Based on the YA novel, the series will focus on teens who have to fight for survival. When they return from a trip, they find everyone in the town missing and there’s no way out.

More from Supernatural

Like you would expect from a YA novel, there’s plenty of arguments, fear, panic, grief, and drama. The teens have to figure out how to work together when they’re thrown into a situation nobody ever expected.

This isn’t the only role Newton has landed in recent years. She will star in Ben is Back in December with Julia Roberts and has already broken out in feature roles through Blockers. She’ll also reprise her role of Abigail Carlson in Big Little Lies Season 2.

The Lord of the Flies-style Netflix series will be penned and executively produced by Chris Keyser and Marc Webb. Keyser is also developing a highly anticipated Party of Five reboot.
