‘Riverdale’ Will Dedicate All Future Episodes to Luke Perry
When Riverdale returns to the air tonight with its first new episode since the death of series star Luke Perry following a massive stroke, it will include a dedication to the late actor. In fact, series producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tweeted earlier today that “all episodes ... for the rest of [the show’s] run” will be dedicated to Perry:
Going through pictures on my way to set. From the early days. With Luke in the middle. Our heart, always. Tonight’s episode of #Riverdale finds Fred doing what he does best--helping Archie. It is dedicated to Luke, as all episodes will be for the rest of our run.
Previously, Aguirre-Sacasa had tweeted this about Perry’s death:
Riverdale airs at 8PM eastern on The CW. There’s still no word on how the show will deal with the character of Fred Andrews moving forward now that Perry has passed away. No matter what happens on Riverdale tonight or for the rest of its run (it’s already been renewed for a fourth season), Perry will be sorely missed.
