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.

It was soooooo exciting to watch you two battle it out. In the most professional of ways of course.
