Kerry Washington and Sean Patrick Thomas Hyped Each Other Up On Twitter And It Was So Wholesome

    The reunion we never knew we needed came at us in the best way with Hulu's new series, Reasonable Doubt.

    Kerry Washington and Sean Patrick Thomas shared the screen for the first time when they played siblings in the 2001 cult classic film, Save the Last Dance.

    But they've reunited for Hulu's new spicy original series, Reasonable Doubt! Kerry acts as an executive producer and also directed the pilot episode of the legal drama, while Sean stars on the show.

    The show is juicy! And after reading this synopsis from Hulu, you might feel the same way: "You'll judge Jax Stewart for her questionable ethics and wild interpretations of the law…until you're the one in trouble. Then you'll see her for what she is: the most brilliant and fearless defense attorney in Los Angeles who bucks the justice system at every chance she gets."


    So when the series made its debut on the streaming service yesterday, the former costars took to Twitter to share how good it felt to work together again.

    First, Kerry praised Sean for being a versatile actor:

    Listen. Y’all know I have loved my movie brother @sean_p_thomas for a looooooong time. But the work he does on THIS show is crazy good. He’s like an acting ninja. And he and @Emayatzy go TOE TO TOE. Black excellence. #ReasonableDoubtHulu

    Then Sean revealed some behind-the-scenes details about how Kerry's directing style contributed to his performance...

    It was soooooo exciting to watch you two battle it out. In the most professional of ways of course. 🤣🤣🤣 What an honor to be trusted to direct talent like yours. #ReasonableDoubtHulu

    ...thus returning the praise to Kerry.

    But the love didn't stop there! Leading up to the premiere of Reasonable Doubt, both Kerry and Sean posted on their Instagram accounts to show what life on set is really like...and it included a reenactment of the iconic dance scene from Save the Last Dance.

    The vibes were truly unmatched!

    But that wasn't the only wave of nostalgia to hit the set. Sean also reunited with his Barbershop costar, Michael Ealy — who Kerry also starred alongside in a few projects, including For Colored Girls.

    So, if you want to see what all of these stars have been working on, tune into Reasonable Doubt, which is now streaming on Hulu.
