Get ready to see more of Kevin roaming the halls of Riverdale High next season.
Casey Cott has been promoted to series regular for Season 2 of The CW’s Riverdale, TVLine has learned exclusively. Cott plays Betty’s gay BFF Kevin Keller, who loves to add his snarky thoughts to the conversation. The son of Riverdale’s town sheriff, Kevin also had a star-crossed romance this season with Joaquin, a member of the Southside Serpents biker gang.
Riverdale, a teen-soap reimagining of the classic Archie comics, scored a Season 2 renewal back in March. Cott joins KJ Apa (Archie), Lili Reinhart (Betty), Cole Sprouse (Jughead), Camila Mendes (Veronica), Madelaine Petsch (Cheryl) and Ashleigh Murray (Josie) as series regulars among the show’s teen cast.
Mark Consuelos (Pitch) will be joining Riverdale‘s cast in Season 2 as Veronica’s father Hiram Lodge. And another new face will be coming to Riverdale High, too: The role of Reggie, played by Ross Butler in Season 1, will be recast.
