Following the death of Luke Perry, who played Fred Andrews on the CW show Riverdale, the show's creator reported that they would be dedicating the March 6 episode, and all other episodes after that, to the late actor.
Nothing was announced concerning how exactly Perry would be remembered in the newest episode, but fans were able to see the "In Memoriam" tribute during last night's show.
Showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa posted a picture of the cast from Riverdale with Perry pictured in the middle of the group, and explained the decision to dedicate all further episodes to him.
"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," he wrote.
