Ross Butler Is Leaving 'Riverdale' & Reggie Will Be Recast For Season Two

Well, this is a bummer — Ross Butler is leaving Riverdale!

The role he originated on the CW series, Reggie, is being recast for season two, all because Ross is just so darn busy. (We figure that’s a good thing, but we’re still sad!)

“We love what Ross did with the role of Reggie [this season], but because of his commitments to other projects, we couldn’t use him nearly as much as we would have liked,” series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said in a statement.

He adds, “[Next season], we want more Reggie on our show — he’s Archie’s rival! — and because Ross is unavailable to come back to Riverdale, we’re looking for a new Reggie. Those are big shoes to fill, but we’re confident we can find an actor who is as funny and sexy as Ross. And of course we all wish Ross the best.”

Whether one of those “commitments to other projects” is second season of 13 Reasons Why remains to be seen.

We’ll miss you Ross!
