Two Prominent Actors are Leaving the “Riverdale” Cast

Riverdale fans, we have sad news for you: two prominent actors are leaving the cast and won’t be returning for season five.

According to creator and showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, “Part of life in ‘Riverdale’ — and part of growing up — is saying goodbye to people. I’m grateful to Skeet and Marisol for their incredible work on the show these last four years, and we all wish them well on their future endeavors. FP and Hermione will never be far from our hearts. And, of course, they’re always welcome back in Riverdale.”

Skeet Ulrich plays FP Jones, the father of Jughead, while Marisol Nichols portrays Hermione, Veronica’s mom.

It hasn’t been announced how their characters will be written off, but based on the last sentence of Roberto’s statement, we’re assuming that their characters won’t be killed off.

Riverdale is currently airing its fourth season and will be finished in May. It was announced last month that it will return for a fifth season but did not specify when it will air.
