The "13 Reasons Why" actor, who played Reggie in the first season, will be "virtually unrecognizable" in Riverdale Season 2. The show's creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said that they love how the actor portrayed his role, however, because of his commitments to other projects, he won;t be available even if they liked him for the part.

"We want more Reggie on our show and because Ross is unavailable to come back to Riverdale, we're looking for a new Reggie," Roberto said. "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."
