He wrote: “This week’s #Riverdale is the last episode Luke filmed.”
He also teased: “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…”
Although this will be the last episode featuring Fred, it is not yet known if Fear the Reaper will see the character die.
WILL RIVERDALE LEAVE NETFLIX?
The showrunner told Entertainment Tonight: “You know, honestly, we are I think all still in shock and are all still processing and grieving.
“We know that we have to address it in some way.
“But we’re giving ourselves a little bit of time and space before we figure out the best way to honor him.”
The first episode of Riverdale to air after Perry’s death, Fire Walk with Me, ended with a title card paying tribute to the Beverly Hills, 90210 star.
