Meet The New Reggie On The CW’s ‘Riverdale’
Fans were saddened when Ross Butler announced he wouldn’t be returning for season 2 of The CW’s Riverdale a few months ago because of his commitment to 13 Reasons Why, but he is being replaced by Charles Melton. Butler gave his approval and excitement at the casting news back when Melton was announced, giving props to the show for keeping Reggie Asian-American and wishing Melton the best. Melton is a fairly new face in the acting world, only having appeared in a few episodes of Glee and American Horror Story and also appearing in the short film The Channel.
If you follow the cast on Instagram, you’ll see that Melton fits in just fine with the cast, appearing in many of their posts and stories. He has also posted many things himself and seems like a perfect addition and we can’t wait to see him in action! Reggie, who is a rival and fellow teammate of Archie, will have a bigger role this season, as so far Melton is credited for 13 episodes by IMDB and Butler only appeared in 7.
Are you excited to see the new Reggie? Check out season 2 of Riverdale when it premieres on The CW on Wednesday October 11th.
