Freeform isn't known for epic crossovers the way The CW is, but that could definitely change if the cast ofThe Bold Type has its way!
Star Katie Stevens thinks The Fosters spin-off, Good Trouble, would make a perfect candidate for a crossover episode with The Bold Type, and she's already got everything mapped out in her head. "I've been watching Good Trouble [...] every week, and Callie (Maia Mitchell) now is in a weird place with her job. She could come and work for Scarlet's [legal department], which then crosses over. I'm sure that Scarlet has to have an L.A. office. Every magazine has another office," the actress explained.
"So we all like take a trip out to the L.A. office [and] meet with them. We'd have dinner at the Coterie and then Jane's like, man, 'I think I should live here.' And then they just exist in the same world," she continued. "I feel like Kat (Aisha Dee) and Gael (Tommy Martinez) can talk about bisexuality and queerness and [Kat] can help Alice (Sherry Cola), who's also queer."
For our money, it might make more sense to have Mariana (Cierra Ramirez) be profiled by Scarlet for creating her activism app, or maybe Davia (Emma Hunton), who side hustles as a body positivity Instagram model. Jane could totally hang out at the Coterie while interviewing either of them, while Sutton would be on hand for styling the photoshoot, and Kat needs to get all those sociable moments.
But why should they have all the fun? Stevens' co-stars Meghann Fahy and Dee said they'd like to see the characters from the college-set grown-ish, which is also set in L.A., join in the fun and make it a three-way crossover.
Logistically speaking, crossovers are difficult for Freeform since there is no centralized shooting schedule for all of its shows. There's no guarantee that even two of the three shows would be filming (or airing) at the same time to allow a crossover to happen organically. So we'll just have to sit on this idea and hope that Freeform hears our pleas and figures out a way to make it all work.
The Bold Type airs Tuesdays 8/7c on Freeform.
