'Riverdale' EP Says Fans Will Be 'Really Surprised & Pleased' by Season 2's Reggie

We are counting down the hours until the season two premiere of Riverdale, coming up this week!

Charles Melton is the newbie to the cast, taking over the part of Reggie Mantle from Ross Butler, who was forced to leave due to scheduling conflicts.

Last season, Reggie wasn’t too involved in the action, but this season, executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says he’s been in every episode filmed so far.

“Reggie’s such a big part of the mythology,” Roberto told TVLine. “We really were missing that kind of day-to-day frenemy antagonist with Archie.”

He added that Charles is “playing Reggie very differently than [Ross], but I love it… I think people will be really surprised and pleased by him.”

If you missed it, the show also just cast Hart Denton as Betty Cooper’s long-lost brother Chic Cooper.

Riverdale returns on Wednesday (October 11) @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW!
