The executive producer of ‘Riverdale’, Roberto Aguirre – Sacasa has stated that next season, they wanted “more Reggie on our show”, so Butler could not longer commit as he also plays a major role in another Netflix original series, ’13 Reasons Why’.
The actresses included in the scene – Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes and Tiera Skovbye have also posted the deleted scene on their social media accounts.

We’re going to miss seeing Ross as Reggie in ‘Riverdale’, but we’re also looking forward to Charles Menton’s rendition of our favorite redhead’s frenemy!
