Luke Perry

Says Goodbye To Riverdale By Luke Perry

Today, the fourth season "Riverdale" starts on Netflix. Luke Perry, who portrayed Archie's father in the series, died of a stroke on March 2019.

His death is the focus of the premiere episode "In Memoriam". In memoriam - commemorating - the opening episode of Season 4 is called "Riverdale."

And in fact, this is all about the passing of the character Fred Andrews, who divorces from the series by a fatal accident. Her actor Luke Perry tragically died in early 2019 at the age of 52 years in a stroke.

Shortly after his death, the creators promised to use the season four premiere to let their shame and grief be conveyed by the characters. The highly emotional episode is now available on Netflix.


Season four begins for the audience as well as for Archie with the news that Fred was killed by a collision.

He drove his car and saw a vehicle with a flat tire on the side of the road. He stopped, got out and helped the person, but was caught and killed by a passing car.

The new sheriff FP (Skeet Ulrich) promises Archie (K.J. Apa) to arrest the driver-guilty culprit. Throughout the episode, the characters tell stories about what positive influence Fred had on their lives.

As Archie then penetrates to visit the scene where Fred was killed, he meets there a woman (guest star Shannen Doherty), which just placed flowers.

She is the person seeking help who saw Fred standing by the wayside. She reveals to Archie that she too would have gotten under the wheels if Fred had not pushed her aside at the last second.

Despite his heroic deed, Archie considers his father's death pointless and continues to seek revenge on the man who has run him over.

When someone makes a confession, he sets out to seek out and confront that person but learns on the ground that, in truth, the son of the confessor was responsible for the collision.

This realization triggers a rethinking in Archie, he realizes that his father would have done exactly the same for him.

On the way back to Riverdale, Archie and his friends are accompanied by FP with a police escort. Back in their hometown, they head straight for the July 4th parade, which honours the city in honour of Fred Andrews.

The episode ends with Fred's funeral and a funeral eulogy by Archie, who vows to honor his father with his deeds as long as he lives.

The fourth season "Riverdale" appears weekly in the US on The CW on Wednesdays and in Germany at the same distance one day later on Netflix. The next episode will be released on October 17, 2019
