A handful of people are coming to town in "#Riverdale" season 2, with #Veronica's (Cami Mendes) father, Hiram, finally returning to his family, and her ex-boyfriend, Nick St. Clair paying a visit. After the tumultuous season finale that placed Fred Andrew's (Luke Perry) life on a limbo, possible culprit Hiram Lodge is coming back home to take his rightful place in the family.

Now whether he's turned over a new leaf following his stint in jail is yet to be seen, but his "dark dealings" has already been confirmed by series creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa back in July. But Hiram isn't the only man in Veronica's life who's making a comeback, as her ex-boyfriend is coming to town, too.

Graham Phillips to play Veronica's ex-boyfriend, Nick

According to Entertainment Weekly, "Riverdale" season 2 will also see the arrival of Veronica's ex-boyfriend, Nick St. Clair, who will be played by actor #Graham Phillips. Phillips is best known for playing Jordan Baxter in "Evan Almighty" and Zach Florrick in "The Good Wife." The 24-year old actor also plays Ethan Shaw in Netflix's "XOXO" with Sarah Hyland.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa told EW that the character hails from New York and is a "wolf in sheep's clothing: a hard-partying Lothario with dark desires and an unchecked sense of privilege." His presence will definitely cause a strain between Archie and Veronica, who viewers will remember are officially together after hooking up during the season finale.

Comic Book reported that as per a photo that Madelaine Petsch shared on her Instagram, Cami Mendes was spotted wearing the Pussycats' signature cat ears, indicating that Veronica is definitely still in the band. Mendes recently opened up to PEOPLE about Veronica's show-stopping style, admitting that the show "has a very specific style," that's why Veronica has her "tight clothing, cinched waists, skirts and heels and nylons."

Mendes said that Veronica is "very polished and put-together," whereas the real life Cami is "more casual than that." She doesn't opt for heels and instead goes for more of jeans and shorts, which Veronica doesn't wear too often. The 23-year old actress admitted that she turns to Tumblr for fashion inspiration and maintains a private account to follow certain Tumblr blogs to help her "visualize" what she likes and keep it in mind for the next time she goes shopping.

"Riverdale" season 2 premieres on The CW on October 11.
