For the past seven seasons, “Riverdale” has treated fans to numerous surprising and exciting pairings. And though the series is coming to an end, its tenure left an impact — and inspired some sweet offscreen romances that have made headlines over the years.
One of the most notable relationships among the “Riverdale” cast was between Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart. After playing love interests in their teen drama, the two went on to date in real life from 2017 to 2020. A few months after their split, Sprouse explained the breakup on Instagram, saying, “Lili and I initially separated in January of this year, deciding to more permanently split in March.” “What an incredible experience I had,” he added. “I’ll always feel lucky and cherish that I had the chance to fall in love. I wish her nothing but the utmost love and happiness moving forward. All I’ll say about it, anything else you hear doesn’t matter.”
Fast forward to 2023, Sprouse reflected on the former pair’s romance again, telling “Call Her Daddy” host Alex Cooper in March, “I think if I had loved myself a little more, I probably would have left [my relationship with Lili] a little earlier.” “I just felt like I had to take care of a lot of people around me, which was not good for me. I probably should have exercised a bit more selfishness in that situation,” he added.
Sprouse and Reinhart aren’t the only “Riverdale” stars who caught the love bug on set. Camila Mendes and Charles Melton started dating in 2018 shortly after their characters got together on the show. Meanwhile, Madelaine Petsch met her former boyfriend, rapper Travis Mills, during casting for the show.
The “Riverdale” cast is fully aware of how ironic it is that some of them have dated one another in real life. In March 2022, Reinhart and Mendes posted a TikTok video of them poking fun at their respective dating histories on their shared account with Petsch. In the hilarious clip, the pair’s puzzled faces are seen floating around in space with the caption, “Us trying to figure out how to date people we don’t work with.”
