Hiram Lodge actor Mark Consuelos will not be returning as a series regular following that season five finale.

The character was exiled from Riverdale all thanks to Archie and the gang.

While it looks like Hiram could definitely return, show creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa confirmed he won't be back as a series regular, according to E! News.

In a statement, as quoted by E!, he said:

'So tonight's episode is Mark's swan song playing our hunky villain Hiram Lodge on Riverdale after four insane, glorious years.'

'From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred percent committed to making Archie's life a living hell.'

'And what's funny is, Mark couldn't be more different from Hiram.'

'A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone,' Roberto continued.

'We wish Mark the best and hope this isn't the last we've seen of Hiram Lodge.'

Mark shares a statement

The actor also released a statement of his own:

'First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity.'

'Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good.'

'Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family,' Mark concluded.

Roberto told Deadline that they had considered killing Hiram off, 'We had fun imagining the ways that might happen.'

However, their love for Mark Consuelos and the character, 'won out,' and they decided not to kill him off in the hopes he might return.
