‘RIVERDALE’ BOSS EXPLAINS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SHANNEN DOHERTY’S CHARACTER IN LUKE PERRY TRIBUTE EPISODE GET MATCHING TATTOOS

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you have not watched Wednesday’s season four premiere of Riverdale.

The masterminds behind “Riverdale” couldn’t have pulled off a more perfect tribute to Luke Perry.

To kick off season four of the popular drama series, The CW aired an hour-long, standalone episode on Wednesday that honoured the late actor, who tragically died earlier this year after suffering a stroke. Simultaneously, it also celebrated the life of Perry’s beloved character on the show, Fred Andrews, the father of Archie (portrayed by KJ Apa). Fans learned that Fred died in a hit-and-run accident, in a heroic effort to save a woman whose car broke down on the side of the road. The actress that played that woman was Shannen Doherty, Perry’s real-life friend and former “Beverly Hills, 90210” co-star.
