Are we about to find out the untimely fate of Fred Andrews in this week’s episode of Riverdale? 

Showrunner Roberto Aquirre-Sacasa has confirmed the inevitable – Thursday’s installment of the hit show will be the last time Luke Perry graces our screens.

Luke Perry passed away two months ago, aged 52, after suffering a stroke. 

“This week’s #Riverdale is the last episode Luke filmed,” Aguirre-Sacasa wrote alongside a still from this week’s show.  

“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…”

Those involved with the show have not divulged how they plan to write Fred Andrews’ character out of the series. 

So whether that is weaved into the plot of this week’s episode or not is yet to be determined. 

Regardless, we’re going to need the tissues and chocolate on hand to get through this one. 

Riverdale creators earlier confirmed that all future episodes of the series would be dedicated to Perry.
