Luke Perry's final Riverdale

Luke Perry will make his very last appearance on Riverdale after he suddenly passed away earlier this year from a massive stroke.

Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa took to social media to announce the pivotal episode.

The tweet, accompanied by a picture of Perry as Archie Andrew's father Fred, garnered an emotional reaction from fans online.

"This week's #Riverdale is the last episode Luke filmed", he wrote on Twitter.

"As always, Fred's imparting words of wisdom to Archie". Wish these scenes could go on forever. So far, the team behind Riverdale has not addressed how the show will death with Perry's death or how they will write off a character who is so deeply entrenched in the narrative.

"You know, honestly, we are I think all still in shock and are all still processing and grieving".

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8/7 on The CW. Our thoughts are with Luke's family during this most hard time'.

"We're recovering, yeah", Sprouse says. The series was renewed for a fourth season in January, but cast members (including Perry) weren't confirmed as season 3 is still airing.

Fans appeared upset by Roberto's news that the Wednesday episode would be the last time they see Luke Perry appear on screen as Fred Andrews.
