Bella Thorne's brand new Freeform series Famous In Love premiered last night, and we're already obsessed. The only thing that could make it better is a guest-starring appearance from her Disney Channel co-star Zendaya – and according to Bella, it is totally going to happen. Yep. that's right. It looks like the Disney darlings are about to make our Shake It Up reunion dreams come true.
"Zendaya almost did a guest star and then she had to go to New York and she couldn’t. She’ll definitely be on next season," Bella said in an interview.
This wouldn't be the first time Bella and Z reunited on screen after Shake It Up wrapped. In fact, Bella played a character named Jolie on a Season 1 episode of Zendaya's show K.C. Undercover, titled "Spy-Anoia Will Destroy Ya." The two had an amazingly choreographed fight scene, which kind of brought us back to their dancing days. Oh, the mems.
As a matter of fact, the process of creating Famous In Love actually started right as Shake It Up ended. Bella read the book, and immediately wanted to make a show out of it.
"I read the book," Bella revealed in an interview. "I was like, 'Wow this is really fun.' And then I got off Shake It Up, and me and my manager – Thor [Bradwell] actually – we wanted to make a show."
So how did it get turned into a reality? Turns out, Bella's manager was tight with the creator of Pretty Little Liars – and the rest is history.
"He was really close to Marlene [King] because he has Ashley Benson, and she’s on PLL. And so, he was like, you know who would be the most amazing for this – like Marlene would bring these characters to life. So then Marlene came up with the dopest pilot for it.”
