“So tonight’s episode is Mark’s swan song playing our hunky villain Hiram Lodge on Riverdale after four insane, glorious years,” Roberto shared in a statement with Deadline.

Mark first joined Riverdale for season two back in 2017 as Hiram Lodge.

“From the moment Mark joined us, he was up for literally anything, a hundred per cent committed to making Archie’s life a living hell,” Roberto continued. “And what’s funny is, Mark couldn’t be more different from Hiram. A classy pro and the sweetest guy, always looking out for everyone. We wish Mark the best and hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen of Hiram Lodge.”

Mark also shared a statement on his exit.

“First and foremost, I would like to thank Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa for this incredible opportunity,” Mark said. “Never before has playing a character that was so bad, felt so good. Huge thanks to the Riverdale fandom, to the brilliant crew and amazing cast, whom I consider dear friends and family.”

Riverdale will return for season six on Tuesday, November 16th at 9/8c on The CW.
