“I’m incredibly grateful for the friendships I’ve made on Riverdale, and I will miss seeing everyone on a daily basis. I’m proud to have been part of such a talented group of people, in front of the camera and behind. But I’ve decided that it’s time for me to move on to explore other creative opportunities.”

In Riverdale, Ulrich plays F.P. Jones – Jughead’s father; he’s been a regular since season two. So far, there’s not been any confirmation as to how the character will be written out of the series.

In addition to Ulrich leaving, Marisol Nichols will also not return for another season. Nichols plays Veronica’s mom Hermione Lodge. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the showrunner for Riverdale; confirmed the two departures:

“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. F.P. and Hermione will never be far from our hearts. And, of course, they’re always welcome back in Riverdale.”

What do you think about Riverdale losing these two characters?
