The main characters return to Rosewood, the location from the first series of Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin. They learn that some of the patients from Rosewoods Radley Sanitarium were sent to Riverdale's Sisters of Quiet Mercy.
Yes, that Riverdale! The Riverdale that is the heart of the CW's Riverdale, the show that experimented with the Archie comics' characters in a non-traditional murder mystery, but then progressed into serial killers, cults, magical powers, and other worlds, with the most recent season ending with a comet hurtling towards town and catapulting everyone back to the 1950s.
It's official: the iconic teenage thriller Pretty Little Liars and the iconic teenage paranormal-crime-drama-soap-opera-musical(?) Riverdalenow share a universe.
Riverdale was assumed to be banned since it is in a completely different universe, but it stayed in, according to the author. So, yes, I guess it does exist in the same universe.
Alex Aiono is apparently a fan of the idea of a football rivalry between the two high schools in both shows, and he went on to enthuse some quips within the cast.
Aguirre-Sacasa said she wants to see a football match between them. Who knows. I dont even know how far wed be permitted to push the shared universes if we did.
Pretty Little Liars was launched in 1994 by Sara Shepard and lasted for seven seasons on Freeform (now ABC Family). The program followed four separated friends until a mysterious stalker starts sending them disturbing messages about their deep dark secrets, resulting in an extremely tangled web of intrigue.
Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin was released on HBO Max earlier this summer, though the previous two showed little interest. Up until this episode, they met up with a character from the original series (albeit played by a different actor).
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is a comic book character from Archie Comics, and there is one minor annoyance: Lucy Hale, who played Aria Montgomery in Pretty Little Liars, also starred as Katy Keene in the Riverdale spinoff of the same name.
The original author of the Pretty Little Liars books has yet to speak up. The next thing to figure out is: Where does Glee fit into this?
