While actor Ross Butler is gaining reputation as our new homeroom crush, Riverdale creators are looking for a way to replace him in our eyes. Apparently, the popular teen drama revealed they will be recasting the role of Reggie, portrayed by Ross, for the second season and the one reason why? Scheduling issues.
"We love what Ross did with the role of Reggie but because of his commitments to other projects, we couldn't use him nearly as much as we would have liked," producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told TVLine. "We want more Reggie on our show 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," he continued.
The rising actor was also a regular in the Netflix's hit series 13 Reasons Why, making it more than impossible for Ross to commit to both programs.
