Believe it or not, Pretty Little Liars and Gilmore Girls have more in common than you think! First, if you’re a pop-culture guru, then you already know that Rosewood and Stars Hollow are basically the same place seeing as how the shows were filmed on the Warner Bros. studio lot and used a lot of the same sets. Remember the AppleRose Grille from way back in PLL season 1? Well, it’s no secret that Luke Danes has poured many cups of coffee in that building.
That being said, while both shows have numerous sets in common, if you look hard enough, you’ll notice there also similarities between certain characters and relationships. For example? Well, aside from Spencer Hastings’ and Paris Geller’s impressive quick wit, if you’re a dedicated PLL viewer, you probably appreciate the close, meaningful bond between Ashley and Hanna Marin because it reminds you a bit of the one that Lorelai and Rory share. Each of these mother-daughter pairs consists of strong, caring women who not only have made us laugh and cry our hearts out over the years, but have also given us plenty of wonderful family goals to aspire to.
On that note, if you’re in the mood for a trip down memory lane, please join us below as we reminisce about some of our favorite Marin/Gilmore moments!
