Shannen Doherty Will Appear on 'Riverdale' Season 4 for Luke Perry Tribute

Shannen Doherty is paying tribute to her late friend Luke Perry.

The 48-year-old actress, who co-starred with Luke on Beverly Hills, 90210, will guest star in the CW’s Season 4 premiere of Riverdale, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed on Sunday (July 21) at 2019 Comic-Con in San Diego, Calif.

The episode will run on October 9, and will be called “In Memorium.” It will reflect on Luke‘s legacy, including his character Fred Andrews on the show.

He also revealed that Luke had been advocating for Shannen to appear on the show “since season one. They were such good friends, and when we were putting together this tribute episode, we wanted to make it as special as possible, and so we asked Shannen to do a pivotal, super-emotional role. She read the script and immediately said yes. It’s very impactful.”

Shannen is also set to star in the upcoming reboot, 90210. Find out more.
