Even though they play loving couple Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones on Riverdale, the co-stars have played coy about their alleged real-life relationship for a while now, with rumors that the two had elevated their friendship first gaining momentum after an Instagram post from Sprouse in March 2017. Since then, reports of Reinhart and Sprouse canoodling have popped up in various places, and fans have busily analyzed every word they and their friends have said about the pair.
All the while, Reinhart and Sprouse have repeatedly declined to comment on their relationship status, remaining coy about the possibility that they could be together by trading comments on social media, vacationing together, getting caught kissing in the streets of Paris, and almost spilling the beans to TMZ.
But now, it looks like we've entered a whole new era of Bughead.
