The 13 episodes of 13 Reasons Why told the entirety of the story contained in Jay Asher's bestselling YA novel-but both its cast and crew are convinced that there's enough material here for more show, even though it has not yet been technically renewed.

Scheduling conflicts, eh? The only other show Butler stars in that's now airing is "13 Reasons Why".

Aguirre-Sacasa added: "Those are big shoes to fill, but we're confident we can find an actor who is as amusing and sexy as Ross".

Speculations that Butler's departure signifies a second season of his other teen drama "13 Reasons Why" are surfacing online. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the showrunner for Riverdale, explained that although they have loved what Ross Butler has done in the role of Reggie, his other commitments meant that they were unable to use him as much as they would have liked.

We still can't believe that Ross Butler won't be our Reggie Mantle anymore on Riverdale. However, his IMDb page has not changed, therefore, there's no confirmation about his role for the "13 Reasons Why" series' upcoming season.

When it was revealed that the characters of the long-running Archie comic book series would be the premise for a brand new show on The CW, not everybody was convinced it would be a success. The first episode was aired on January 26, 2017, until now.

The show also stars KJ Apa as Archie, Lili Reinhart as Betty, Camila Mendes as Veronica and Cole Sprouse as Jughead.

What do you think of the recasting? Which actor is suitable to play his role?

Although no official announcement of a second season has been forthcoming, executive producer Selena Gomez recently said that any future episodes would go beyond the original story: "We know there are so many stories that lie beneath each character".
