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

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!

'Every Witch Way' Star Paola Andino Joins USA's 'Queen of the South'

'Every Witch Way' Star Paola Andino Joins USA's 'Queen of the South'

We can’t even hold back our excitement about Paola Andino coming back to television!

The former Every Witch Way star has joined USA’s Queen of the South drama series, which is about Teresa Mendoza (Alice Braga), a woman who is forced to run and seek refuge in America after her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico.

Paola will play the part of Olivia “Chaparra” Gutierrez, a party girl with a brash mouth and a taste for trouble who ushers her best friend Isabela Vargas into the narco-brat lifestyle – much to the chagrin of Isabela’s parents, the drug empire power couple at odds with each other, Camila and Epifanio Vargas.

This is definitely a departure from Emma on EWW!
