Skeet Ulrich Is Leaving ‘Riverdale’ Because He’s “Bored Creatively”

Riverdale star Skeet Ulrich has revealed that he’s leaving the hit show because he’s “bored creatively”.

Riverdale has only grown in popularity since it debuted on The CW in 2017. Since the show’s release, the series has continued to garner acclaim and has even launched a shared television universe with Chilling Adventures with Sabrina and Katy Keene. Seeing as the show has nowhere to go but up, many fans of the series were confused when star Skeet Ulrich was leaving it behind. In Riverdale, Skeet Ulrich played fan favorite FP Jones, the father of Jughead.

It was announced earlier this year that Skeet Ulrich wouldn’t be returning to Riverdale for its fifth season. In a recent Instagram livestream, Ulrich revealed that he’s leaving Riverdale behind because he’s “bored creatively”. A fan was able to capture Ulrich’s revelation from the Instagram livestream and post it on Twitter, which you can check out below.

As disappointing as it is that Skeet Ulrich is leaving the coveted Riverdale role behind, it makes complete sense that he’s bowing out because of boredom. At the end of the day, it’s best for actors and creative forces to focus on projects that actually bring them joy as opposed to shoehorning their participation in. Ulrich should have a number  projects lined up after Riverdale and will next be seen in the science-fiction film Bios starring Tom Hanks.
