After four seasons, Riverdale will be saying goodbye to two parental figures.

Skeet Ulrich and Marisol Nichols, who have been series regulars since the first season, will be leaving the show after the fourth season.

Ulrich plays Jughead Jones’ (Cole Sprouse) father F.P. Jones and Nichols plays Hermione Lodge, the mother of Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes).

Ulrich commented on his departure via Instagram, “I can’t even begin to thank you all for the unwavering support and love!! It is remarkable and deeply appreciated. I may be leaving Riverdale but my experience over the last four years will never leave my heart. A very special thanks to @writerras for giving me this opportunity.”

In January 2020, Riverdale was renewed for a fifth season.

Ulrich’s next role is in the sci-fi feature BIOS alongside Tom Hanks and in the new Quibi series #FreeRayShawn. Nichols will appear in the horror Spiral with Samuel L. Jackson and Chris Rock.
