If you go to see Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, you’ll be seeing the final on-screen appearance of Luke Perry, the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star who died on March 4 after suffering a stroke. At the time, Perry had been working as a series regular on Riverdale, starring as the father of Archie Andrews. While Perry’s final Riverdale scene aired in April, he is certainly not being forgotten by the show. K.J. Apa, who stars as Archie, told us the show’s fourth-season premiere this fall will be an emotional episode honoring the memory of his on-screen father. (Click on the media bar below to hear K.J. Apa)
The season premiere episode of Riverdale will air Wednesday, October 9 on The CW.
