The 52-year-old played Fred Andrews in Riverdale and his death came in the middle of its third season, leaving three episodes left to film. A tribute to our fallen friend. Perry played Fred Andrews in the series, the father of principle character Archie Andrews.
Note: This post contains spoilers for Wednesday night's episode of "Riverdale." .
"Riverdale" shed its campy, neo-noir skin in honoring the actor and his character, instead adopting a more earnest tone to highlight the qualities that defined Fred.
The premiere takes place around the Fourth of July. Now that he's gone, Archie will be determined to keep his spirit alive by "trying to do what his father did, which is help his community, help his town, help his friends, make the right choices..." While doing so, he learns that Fred died doing what he did throughout his life: helping someone in need.

The overlapping audience witnessed Perry's maturation from the teen idol playing sensitive bad boy Dylan McKay on "90210" to the veteran actor who, both on and off screen, gave sage advice to similarly rebellious teenagers on "Riverdale". "On the show, he's always kind of been our moral center". However, he learns that the man charged with the crime only turned himself in to protect his teenage son, who had taken the vehicle without permission and ended up hitting Fred before fleeing the scene. Upon learning this, Archie's anger contorts into anguish. Another kind of different thing that we chose to do was not include a 'previously on.'
