Are Lili and Brittany related?

No, Lili and Brittany are not related and do not share any family ties.

The comparison between Lili and Brittany has been lingering ever since Lili burst onto Riverdale and tweets from fans noticing the resemblance date back to 2017.

Lili’s apparent similarity to Brittany has led some fans to speculate that Lili may be a reincarnation of the late actress who died in December 2009 at the age of 32.

Another popular theory among fans is that Lili and Brittany are somehow related, but as Distractify points out, the pair of actors are unrelated, meaning their similar appearance is purely coincidental.
