Hearts are breaking across Riverdale High today.

The CW series "Riverdale" is saying goodbye to actor Ross Butler, who plays Archie's nemesis Reggie on the show. Butler, who recently shot to fame for his roles on "Riverdale" and Netflix's "13 Reasons Why," is apparently too busy to continue playing Reggie in Season 2.

"We love what Ross did with the role of Reggie [this season], but because of his commitments to other projects, we couldn't use him nearly as much as we would have liked," series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told TVLine.

Don't fret, "Riverdale" fans. You'll still get your Reggie fix next season. The show's creators are just planning to recast the role.

"[Next season], we want more Reggie on our show — he's Archie's rival! — and because Ross is unavailable to come back to 'Riverdale,' we're looking for a new Reggie," Aguirre-Sacasa said.

"Those are big shoes to fill, but we're confident we can find an actor who is as funny and sexy as Ross," Aguirre-Sacasa added. "And of course we all wish Ross the best."

We may be jumping to conclusions here, but could one of Butler's "other projects" be a second season of "13 Reasons Why?" Hey, a girl can dream.
