Nobody does crossover episodes quite like The CW.
With the hotly anticipated four show superhero crossover event featuring Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and the newest CW series Supergirl already announced for the upcoming season — as well as an additional musical superhero crossover with The Flash and Supergirl — the network is all about the concept of a shared universe.
During the CBS Television Critics Association Party earlier this month, People’s Choice caught up with Riley Smith, Peyton List, and Mekhi Phifer from the upcoming CW series Frequency to find out if there’s any chance their show will be getting in on the super-sized crossover fun.
“Our show is a little bit more grounded on reality. Those shows are great, and it would be great to sort of find a way to intertwine,” Phifer told People’s Choice about a potential superhero crossover. “Even though we’re dealing with some aspects of sci-fi, [Frequency] is really about family and the grounded nature of what’s going on. The things that we go through feel very real and I think people can relate to it a lot more.”
Inspired by the 2000 film of the same name, Frequency centers on Raimy Sullivan (List), a detective who discovers that she’s able to communicate through a ham radio with her father, a detective who died in 1996. As the two forge a new relationship while working together to solve an unresolved murder case, unintended consequences of the butterfly effect arise in the present day.
A superhero crossover might be a bit of a stretch, but what about a sci-fi series crossover? Since Frequency is helmed by Jeremy Carver, who used to be a showrunner on Supernatural, we asked the cast whether there’s any chance we’ll see them teaming up with the Winchester brothers.
"Never say never," List told People's Choice about a potential Supernatural crossover.
"Especially with The CW," Smith added. "You know, CW has a way of really setting trends and shaking things up. I think we're for it."
Frequency is set to premiere Wednesday, October 5, 2016 on The CW.
What do you think? Would you like to see the cast from Frequency crossover with one of The CW's superhero programs?
