Stokes and Cline were at first coworkers who played love interests. As fans began to root for their characters, they also hoped the pair would get together in real life due to their sizzling onscreen chemistry.
“Chase, [our creator] Jonas [Pate] and I all sat down from the get-go and spoke about the relationship. We wanted to make sure it was real and it had depth to it,” Cline told Seventeen Magazine in May 2020. “There were things that Chase and I specifically added to the script that felt personal. You have to sell it. It’s got to be compelling. Thankfully the cast all clicked and we had such great chemistry, so we all had this friendship from the very beginning. So building on that and then projecting it on the screen felt very, very real.”
