Apparently Riverdale & Rosewood Are Actually The Same Place

If you're a sucker for a good mystery, a dreamy cast and a bit of an adrenaline rush, you were probably obsessed with Pretty Little Liars and even more obsessed Riverdale. Although the Liars have just ended their time in Rosewood and Archie, Betty and Jughead may have just begun theirs in Riverdale, it turns out they actually have quite the connection. Thanks to some Reddit sleuthing, it turns out the two towns are actually the same place. Wild, right?

After providing some aerial photos of Riverdale and Rosewood, Redditor Ludoth31st included a caption that said, "So I watched the first episode of Riverdale the other day and noticed the town looked quite familiar. It's Rosewood. I'm not sure if this was pointed out before but thought it was funny."

Though the proof seems to be in the photos, it's actually not the true location the shows were filmed. Both used this same bit of aerial stock footage, however Riverdale was actually shot in Vancouver. The more you know!
