TV Show Pairs That Actually Used The Same Sets

By  | 

If you've ever gotten a sense of deja vu when watching TV, it might not be because of the recycled plot lines or the fact that one actor seems to appear in everything. If you cannot figure out why you're getting the feeling that you've seen it all before, it could actually have something to do with the set. What a lot of us don't realize is that TV shows sometimes recycle their TV sets.

It makes sense when you think about it. TV shows can cost millions to make and there isn't the room, time or money for new sets to be constructed for every single show. Of course, they don't keep the sets exactly the same. While the bones of a set might remain the same, set designers transform the places using a lick of paint, decorations and/or staging to transport us from one realm/world/family house to another. Have a look at some of the TV show pairs that used the same sets.
