'Riverdale' at Comic-Con: Shannen Doherty guests on Luke Perry tribute

22.7.2019

This is the Luke Perry salute we've all been waiting for.

Perry died at age 52 in March after suffering a massive stroke near the end of last season. Instead of"rushing an episode or story line," Aguirre-Sacasa said, the Season 4 premiere (airing Oct. 9) will be a special standalone episode acting as a tribute to both Perry and his character, Fred Andrews.

Perry had been trying to get his"Beverly Hills, 90210" co-star Shannen Doherty on"Riverdale," and she will appear in"an emotional role" in the premiere, Aguirre-Sacasa said.

Other cast members remembered Perry as well."He was like a mentor," said Lili Reinhart, who plays Betty Cooper on the show.

Betty (Lili Reinhart, left)., Veronica (Camila Mendes) and Jughead (Cole Sprouse) are entering their senior year on "Riverdale."

Not that this show's getting normal anytime soon: Cheryl will continue to talk to the body of her dead brother ("Her mental state is at an all-time low," Petsch teases), she and Veronica will team up for a maple syrup rum venture a la"Risky Business," and in the fourth episode back, somebody's going to die at Halloween.

Archie's loss means Molly Ringwald will play a bigger role this season as Mary Andrews becomes"a full-time mom," Aguirre-Sacasa said, and the"Riverdale" cast also adds "Dawson's Creek" alum Kerr Smith as Mr. Honey, Riverdale High's new principal.
