Skeet Ulrich on leaving Riverdale

F. P. Jones actor Skeet Ulrich has shared the real reason why he's leaving Riverdale.

Ulrich addressed the issue with fans during his girlfriend Megan Blake Irwin's Instagram Live.

He very bluntly said, "I'm leaving Riverdale because I got bored creatively."

Ulrich added, "How's that? That's the most honest answer."

It was announced earlier this year that he and his co-star Marison Nichols have decided to leave the show.

They've played Hermione Lodge and F. P. Jones in the series since it began in 2017.

Their Riverdale journey ended after the fourth season.

In a statement to E! News at the time, Ulrich said he's, 'incredibly grateful for the friendships [he's] made on Riverdale.'

He said, '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.'

While Nichols said, '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.'

In an interview, Sam said he doesn't believe the show's writers think before they put pen to paper.
