The death of Luke Perry broke the hearts of Riverdale fans all across the world.

The actor played the loveable and loyal Fred Andrews on the teen drama series and it’s safe to say he was missed as season four aired on Netflix today.

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when the Luke Perry tribute episode aired. It was an emotional watch for the fans, but we can’t even begin to imagine how hard it was for the cast.

They didn’t have to act because the pain and heartache was all too real. Speaking ahead of the premiere, Lili Reinhart, who plays Betty Cooper on the show, penned a heartfelt tribute to her co-star.

Lili shared a series of photos of Luke and the cast which are bound to warm your heart.

The actress wrote, “Tonight’s episode, and all episodes for the rest of our run, are for Luke. We love, honor, and cherish his memory every single day.”

"I only wish he were here to see how many lives he touched with happiness and laughter. I know he’s watching from above. We love you, Luke,” the Hustlers star added.

Fellow Riverdale star, Camila Mendes said it was hard to express how she was feeling ahead of the season four premiere.

“We put everything we have into this episode. We wanted to honour Luke’s memory in the most sincere and respectful way possible. This episode is as hard to watch as it was to make it,” she wrote.

Camila continued, “Actually, making it was harder, but the result is a beautiful tribute to our friend. Luke deserves that and so much more.”

Season four of Riverdale is available on Netflix now.


Riverdale returns to Netflix this week and we're not ready for the emotional episode ahead of us.

Make sure you’ve got the tissues at the ready because the first episode of season four will be a tribute to the late Luke Perry, who played Fred Andrews on the show.

The actor suffered a stroke earlier this year and died at the mere age of 52. Fans, family and co-stars were stunned by the actor’s untimely passing, especially the Riverdale cast.

They will pay tribute to both Luke and his character in this Thursday’s episode of Riverdale. The trailer for the episode had us in floods of tears so there’s no doubt we’ll be blubbering wrecks by the time the end credits roll.

The episode will see Archie come to terms with his father’s death as the residents of Riverdale attend Fred’s funeral.

Riverdale returns to Netflix on October 10.


Riverdale is the show we love to hate. The teen drama has got to be one of the most complicated and cheesiest shows on TV but we just can't get enough of it.

We've been itching for the show to return since that creepy season three finale.

We have so many questions that desperately need to be answered. The main one being- where on earth is Jughead? Is he even alive?

Who knows.

We can all breathe a sigh of relief as the autumn time is officially here which means most of our favourite shows are set to return, including Riverdale.

We only have to wait a few more days to wait until Archie, Betty and co. return to Riverdale as it hits Netflix on October 10.

Season four will feature an emotional tribute episode to Luke Perry, who played Fred Andrews on the show until he tragically suffered a stroke last year.

There's no doubt fans will be taken aback by the emotional episode.

A brand new episode of Riverdale will air every Thursday at 8 am.


The next season of Riverdale will begin with a tribute to the late Luke Perry.

Luke played the much-loved character of Fred Andrews and his death in March of a stroke shocked cast, crew and fans worldwide. 

Fred was seen in the last episode of season three, advising his on-screen son Archie (KJ Apa).
He didn't feature in the remaining episodes but they were dedicated to him.  

Now show creator Robert Aguirre-Sacasa has announced that season four will open in Memoriam, which will honour the actor and his character. 

He took to Twitter writing, ''Probably the most important episode of #Riverdale we’ll do this year, if not ever. A tribute to our fallen friend. Thankful for this opportunity to honour Luke & Fred.''

Robert spoke before about how they will address Fred in the show.

He told Entertainment Tonight in March, ''You know, honestly, we are I think all still in shock and are still processing and grieving. We know that we have to address it in some way, but we’re giving ourselves a little bit of time and space before we figure out the best way to honour him.''

He continued, ''Luke was, is, and will always be a big part of Riverdale. We’re kind of a family and when a loss like this happens, you carry it always. It changes and it hopefully becomes a little less painful as time goes by, but you’re changed. When I was with the crew, I said, “it will never be the same,” and that’s true because Luke was such a part of the show.’

We are looking forward to seeing how they acknowledge Luke as the great actor and man that he was. 


The world was shocked and saddened by the passing of Riverdale star Luke Perry in March of this year.

The 53-year-old suffered a massive stroke and died several days later. 

The actor, who had played Fred Andrews for three seasons, had three episodes of the season left to film. 

The dilemma then was – how do the creators address it?

Do they write his character out, give an unexplained absence or kill him off?

They decided that for season three, they would just leave it be.

The show said that Fred was away on business and Molly Ringwald came back as Archie's mother Mary so that the teenager had a parent to take care of him.

So, what's gonna happen in season 4 then?

Showrunner Roberto Aguirre Sacasa revealed what was in store.

He said, ''When Luke passed, it was such a shock, and it was devastating and we kind of have to deal with the emotion of that, and then you have to figure out everything that comes next.''

He continued, ''We will definitely deal with it and address it on the show…we’ll do it at the top of Season 4. We just didn’t want to rush in and do something before we had fully figured it out.''

He added, ''We’d already written basically the end of the season, so rather than try to squeeze in something that’s so monumental and so important, we thought, ‘Let’s take the time to think about what we want to do, and do it right.'”

The good news is that Molly Ringwald looks like she'll be set to step into a series regular role.

Roberto  said, ''[We’ve told her], ‘You’re welcome back anytime, as often as you want and as much as you  want.''

He continued, ''We actually already had her scheduled to come back to Riverdale to visit Archie and Fred. When the tragedy happened, she said, ‘If you need me to stay, I’ll stay.’ And I said, “We’d love you to stay’…We’ve talked about Molly having a bigger presence next year to help her son.''

We'll have to sit tight as we wait for another season – hopefully Fred Andrews will get the send-off he deserves as he was such a beloved character. 


The untimely passing of actor Luke Perry left his family, friends and fans at a complete and utter loss for words. The world was stunned to hear that the Riverdale actor suffered a stroke at the mere age of 52 and completely devastated when it was revealed that the 90210 alum had died on March 4.

His Riverdale co-star and on-screen son KJ Apa has opened up about losing his dear friend during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. KJ had previously paid tribute to Luke on Instagram but has understandably kept quiet about the harrowing loss.

He took a moment to remember his Riverdale co-star during his interview, stressing how kind-hearted Luke was.

The 21-year-old said: “He did everything he could to make everyone, no matter how big or small you were, feel comfortable and welcome. It's hard to put into words how that makes me feel."

The Last Summer star even shared that Luke had a special relationship with his family and made sure to stay in touch with KJ’s parents in New Zealand.

"He would call my parents every week and keep them updated on how I'm going. If I had a cold or something he would say, 'I took some Gatorade to his apartment the other day.’”

KJ added: “I hope I can be like that," to which host Jimmy Fallon replied, "You can be like that. You are like that."

Luke Perry’s final episode of Riverdale aired last week.

Veronica as a character is known for her flowery language and unrealistic one-liners, but Camilla’s words were truly touching.

‘He took care of us all. An authentic man who took pleasure in offering us his guidance and wisdom, his presence was healing,’ she began.

‘He had the ability to make you feel comfortable and at ease within seconds of seeing him.’

‘I will never forget the collective shock and distress we experienced when the news broke on set.’ 

'We lost a dear friend. My heart hurts for his family and anybody who had the pleasure of knowing him,’ she continued.

‘Rest in peace, Luke. Although you’re no longer around to wrap me in the warmth of your hug, I can still remember what it felt like. Whenever I think of you, I will remember that feeling.’

Actress Lili Reinhart, who plays Betty on the show, had this to say: 

'I’m finding it hard to grasp that he will no longer be around to give long hugs and share his wisdom and kindness with all of us,' she tweeted. 

'I’m thinking of his family. His children. I pray for them to heal and find peace in this devastating loss.'

'I just can’t believe it.'


Luke Perry’s daughter Sophie has paid tribute to her late dad in a heartbreaking post. The humanitarian posted a photo of her and her dad to her Instagram account.

Sophie explained that she made it back just in time to bid goodbye to her dear dad. “A lot has happened in this past week for me. Everything is happening so fast. I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family.”

She thanked the public for the constant stream of love and support since news of the Riverdale actor’s death broke.

“And in the past 24 hours, I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support. I cannot individually respond to the hundreds of beautiful and heartfelt messages, but I see them, and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I.”

There’s no doubt Sophie is still in a state of shock following the untimely death of her 52-year-old dad. “ I’m not really sure what to say or do in this situation, it’s something you aren’t ever given a lesson on how to handle, especially when it’s all happening in the public eye.”

She asked: “So bear with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly.”
