Ulrich was promoted to series regular on Riverdale in its second season, but quit the show in 2020 because he claimed during an Instagram Live session that he was “bored creatively” and wanted to pursue “other creative opportunities”, which seems to include Salvation.

His departure came as the fourth season wrapped early because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but he returned for the first three episodes of season 5, before leaving for good.
