33 Popular TV Shows That Shared The Same Set
THE WEST WING AND SMALLVILLE
This was a blink-and-you-probably-missed-it moment. If you caught it, you deserve a pat on the back. The West Wing was filmed mainly on a sound stage in Burbank, California. On the other hand, Smallville was filmed mainly in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. If you’re wondering about how they crossed over, it occurred in the first season of Smallville when Lex Luthor imagines himself as the President of the United States. See where this is going? They shot the scene in the same set where The West Wing was filmed. Makes sense.
THE WONDER YEARS AND GLEE
Remember The Wonder Years? The show aired from 1988 to 1993 and it focused on people growing up in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Well, somehow Glee ended up using the same set decades later when it premiered in 2009. Here’s another fun fact for you: Both The Wonder Years and Glee named their fictional schools William McKinley High. And that’s not the only crossover. Freaks & Geeks also used William McKinley High — though they filmed elsewhere. Small world/TV-world, eh?
