Two major characters from “Riverdale” will be leaving the series for good at the end of the fourth season. Both Skeet Ulrich (F.P. Jones) and Marisol Nichols (Hermione Lodge) announced that they would not return for the fifth season.
“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,” says Skeet Ulrich.
“I had an incredible time bringing Hermione Lodge to life and working with my amazing cast, who became family. We had so many wonderful times together during the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. We really do have the best fans ever. I am looking forward to the next chapter and am excited about the future,” admits Marisol Nichols.
“Riverdale” is currently airing on the CW. The new episode, “Chapter Seventy-One: How to Get Away with Murder,” will air on 26 February (Wednesday).
“Riverdale” has been already renewed for the fifth season.
