‘Riverdale’ Promotes Skeet Ulrich to Season 2 Regular

Riverdale‘s Skeet Ulrich has been promoted to a season regular for it’s second season according to TVLine. Ulrich plays FP Jones, the leader of the Southside Serpents and father of Jughead Jones.

The soapy Archie Comics based show saw Ulrich’s character trying to balance being the leader of the Southside Serpents, a father, and his alcoholism. What could’ve been a throw away character, the “bad dad” stereotype, was quickly turned away and we saw a man struggling to survive his past and find his way back to his family.

According to series EP Sarah Schecter over at Deadline, “We so loved having Skeet on Riverdale last year, that we couldn’t imagine Riverdale without him.” She went on to say that, “He’s a stellar actor and we feel we have just scratched the surface of who FP is. We are excited to have Skeet continue on this journey and we can’t wait for the audience to see what he is up to this year.”

With Riverdale taking a darker turn for Season 2 it’s going to be exciting to see how Ulrich’s characters plays into everything. We’re looking forward to seeing FP fight his inner demons, protect his son from following the same path he did, and exploring his past with the parents of Riverdale.

Riverdale will be returning for Season 2 on The CW.
