TV Insider hit Riverdale fans yesterday with a double dose of good news: Vanessa Morgan (Toni Topaz) and Charles Melton (New Hot Reggie) will be series regulars for Season 3 of The CW series!

Reggie has long been a vital part of the Archie Comics tapestry that inspired the series, and while fans were a bit lukewarm worrying that she’d be a threat to “Bughead,” Riverdale fans have come to love Morgan due to a winning performance and her character’s pairing with Cheryl Blossom.

“Toni Topaz has been a break-out character for us since Jughead met her at Southside High — and that’s thanks to Vanessa Morgan’s fearless, winning performance,” Executive Producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told TV Insider. “We’re thrilled that the adventures of this fan-favorite will continue into Season 3. Long live Choni!”

Aguirre-Sacasa also had very positive things to say about Charles Melton and his performance as Reggie.

“Charles stepped into the iconic role of Reggie this season and completely made it his own,” he said, adding that he “is sexy and funny as hell.”

“He’s a terrific addition to the gang and in Season 3, we’ll be seeing A LOT more of him. All hail Mantle the Magnificent!”
