Crossover episodes have long-been a staple of network TV that seemed to peak in the 1990s (Golden Girls and Empty Nest on NBC in the ‘90s, CSI crossovers on CBS in the ‘00s, Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder on ABC in the ‘10s are among many other examples).

Crossover episodes have also occurred on cable TV, with The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead on AMC and superhero shows on the CW.

But crossover episodes seems to be a strategy largely regulated to shows that air live / on network TV (and sometimes, rarely, between networks).

All that said, are there any examples of crossover episodes on narrative series (not reality shows) that originated on streaming services like Hulu or Netflix?

  • Is there a crossover between Walking Dead and Fear the walking dead? I know that Morgan went from left one show to become a regular character of the other one, but not a crossover.

    The CW is not a cable TV network.

  • The new live action Star Trek shows on CBS All Access are all interconnected.

There are the Marvel series on Netflix:

The protagonists from Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist join together on The Defenders, The Punisher spun off from Daredevil and they all share multiple side characters. And of course they all belong to and reference the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  • There's all the ABC stuff too - they all tie through the movies, with Disney now picking up the pieces - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel_Cinematic_Universe#Television

    Can we really consider whole different series with characters from multiple other series acting together as crossover?
