Luke Perry to Make Final Appearance on 'Riverdale' This Week

Luke Perry's final curtain call is coming this week on "Riverdale."

The last episode Luke filmed for the hit CW series is set to air Wednesday ... nearly 2 months since the actor died from a massive stroke. "Riverdale" showrunner, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, revealed the details Sunday night.

Cole Sprouse revealed last month the show had something planned to address Luke's sudden passing. As you know, "Riverdale" acknowledged Luke shortly after his death -- closing an episode with an "In memoriam" graphic.

This week's episode will, naturally, be more in-depth as it will include the final scenes he ever shot on camera.

As we've reported ... Perry was incredibly beloved by fans of the show -- as well as his costars and the crew -- as he played Fred Andrews. KJ Apa stars as his son, Archie Andrews. KJ also paid tribute to Luke days after his passing, saying, "Rest in Love bro."
