While fans all over the world mourn the death of Luke Perry, his co-stars are sending out tributes of their own to honor the late actor. All further episodes of Riverdale, in which Perry played Fred Andrews, have already been dedicated to him, but the creators of the Archie Comics adaptation are planning to do some other tributes.
Cole Sprouse, who plays Jughead Jones in the CW series, recently made an appearance on The View, where he was questioned about how Riverdale would handle Perry's death. The 26-year-old actor said he couldn't go into detail, but the show definitely has something coming.

"I can't go too much into the spoilers of it, but we do have something planned narratively,” Sprouse said. “We dedicated some of the episodes to him.”
Sprouse continued, “He was very well loved. I mean, the whole world is mourning his passing. But, he was one of those guys that would rather have us all laughing about his great stories than mourning for too long."
After Perry's death on March 4, Riverdale shut down production for two days to give the cast and crew time to mourn the passing of their friend. The show's creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa also posted a picture of Perry and the cast with a heartfelt caption.
Sprouse posted his own tribute to Perry on Instagram as well.
Perry was laid to rest in Dickson, Tennessee on Monday.
