Riverdale fans will have to say goodbye to Luke Perry nearly two months after his death.
On Sunday, Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed that Wednesday’s episode of the hit CW drama will be the last time fans see Perry play Fred Andrews.
“This week’s #Riverdale is the last episode Luke filmed,” Aguirre-Sacasa wrote on Twitter alongside a photo of Perry as Archie’s (KJ Apa) dad. “As always, Fred’s imparting words of wisdom to Archie. A beautiful, true moment between a father and his son.”
“Wish these scenes could go on forever…❤️🏆💎👨🏻💻,” he added.
It's not clear how the show will address Perry's death on screen and Aguirre-Sacasa has siad the cast and crew are still struggling with it.
“You know, honestly, we are I think all still in shock and are all still processing and grieving,” he admitted. “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 honor him.”
And Cole Sprouse later said the show will dedicate “some of the episodes to him.”
“I can’t go too much into the spoilers of it, but we do have something planned narratively,” he said on The View. “We dedicated some of the episodes to him.”
Perry was hospitalized after suffering a stroke on Feb. 27 after paramedics were dispatched to his home. He later died at age 52.
