10 Best TV Character Crossovers
8. Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl
One of the more recent TV crossovers occurred when Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl crossed paths with the episodes “The Night Shift” and “Homecoming.” It had never occurred to fans of either series that the two would exist in the same universe, but they made it work. While the crossover with Zooey Deschanel’s Jessica Day popping up in Brooklyn Nine-Nine went over better than the New Girl’s “Homecoming,” the crossover wasn’t a critical success. With both shows being so funny individually and with so many great characters, fans expected a lot more from the crossover, but it was difficult for everyone to get the screen time they deserved.
7. Supergirl and The Flash
The Arrowverse has had a lot of crossovers, especially since the introduction of The Flash and Supergirl, but the crossover between those two particular series was the most important. Despite the fact both DC Comics’ series were produced by the same man, Greg Berlanti, it was made clear that Supergirl would not be operating in the same universe as The CW’s The Flash and Arrow, but that all changed with the episode “World’s Finest.” As the eighteenth episode of Supergirl’s first episode, it took awhile before the decision was made to put Supergirl in the same universe as The Flash showed up to help Supergirl battle the Silver Banshee. With Supergirl’s future in jeopardy, the episode proved to be exactly what was needed as it was not only a seamless blend of the two but set up Supergirl‘s eventual move to The CW for season two.
