As your broken heart already knows, Ross Butler will be vacating the role of Reggie on Riverdale for season 2. The ridiculously handsome gentleman is just too in demand to play Archie's main nemesis any longer. But there are no hard feelings between Ross and the show; earlier this month, the show's creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, expressed sadness about Ross leaving, saying the reason they want more Reggie next season is because Ross is so damn good at playing Archie's rival.
With that said, Entertainment Weekly is now reporting that Riverdale has its new Reggie. Charles Melton will be taking over the role of Archie's main nemsis from Ross Butler, who is leaving due to lack of availability. Charles has previously had small roles on Glee and American Horror Story: Hotel. It's also worth noting that he's, um, very nice to look at.
Oh, and did I mention he loves dogs?!?!
And plays basketball with adorable kids!?
All I'm saying is, there are worse things in the world than his Instagram feed. That's all. Welcome to Riverdale, Reggie 2.0!
