Life With Derek was on Disney Channel from 2005 to 2009, but more than a decade after the show aired its final episode, it’s trending. Thanks to a viral tweet calling out Life With Derek for some incest-y overtones between Derek and Casey, who just so happen to be step-siblings, people are re-examining some questionable scenes from the OG Disney show. Perhaps these suggestions is why, with Disney+‘s long list of Disney Channel Original Shows from years’ past streaming on the service, LWD is nowhere to be found. (FWIW: you can stream on Tubi.)

The newfound interest in the Canadian TV show has lead to the resurfacing of an old MTV article — where the lead actors who play Derek and Casey, Michael Seater and Ashley Leggat, respectively, ship their characters together, too! In fact, Michael teased that the almost-spinoff, which had a script but never aired, Life With Derek, Again, “started with Casey and Derek in bed together … [but] I’m not gonna tell you the context of it.”


The two actors have reacted to the trend, which Ashley says happens “yearly,” thanks to nostalgia.

Now that you’re either a #Dasey shipper or deeply disturbed by it, you can watch Michael Seater and Ashley Leggat act out fan fiction as their characters.
