'Riverdale' fans offer tributes to Luke Perry after special episode

Skeet Ulrich

That living arrangement became more permanent when "Riverdale" returned for its fourth season Wednesday night with an episode titled "In Memoriam", in which we discover that Fred has been struck by a auto and killed in a nearby town.

The Riverdale gang dedicated the Season 4 premiere to mourning the untimely death of a beloved character... and a beloved cast member.

She shared a slide show of pictures last night ahead of the Riverdale season four premiere. Aguirre-Sacasa previously told The Hollywood Reporter he held off on wrapping up Fred's story out of respect.

While Perry's last appearance on Riverdale aired in April, almost two months after his death, Fred's absence has yet to be addressed on-screen.

The emotional episode featured a funeral for the character and a cameo by Perry's close friend Doherty. "Over the seasons, Luke and I had talked a lot about trying to get Shannen on the show, and the timing never worked out", the EP remembers. And he cared so deeply about Shannen... Shannon was really happy and really thankful that they asked her to do that part.


Fred's son, Archie Andrews (played by KJ Apa), was at Pop's Chock'lit Shoppe when a phone called came in, once he answered the phone he fell to his knees.

When Andy Cohen said that Perry seemed like a very laid-back person, Consuelos added, "Everybody loved him". Fred was the show's moral compass and a steady source of support for Archie, a character often torn between his upstanding nature and his impulsive tendencies. Episodes of Riverdale are also available for purchase on Prime Video. But it won't be easy: Archie is "going to struggle with grief, and struggle with how to live up to Fred's memory". And fans hope in Season 4, the first episode may be related to Fred's father Dead.

Aguirre-Sacasa has teased that while they're still throwing around a few ideas for what could have happened there, but it likely won't be addressed until the middle of season 4.

Season 3 wrapped up several ongoing storylines that spanned the whole series so far, and boy what a series it was! We definitely still have insane stories.

"He saved my life, and if he hadn't done what he did, there's no way I'd be here right now; I know that", she tells Archie.
