What's About to Happen to Archie's Dad Fred Andrews in 'Riverdale' Season 4?

By

Following the untimely passing of Riverdale star Luke Perry earlier this year, fans were left asking one question: What will happen to Fred Andrews? Perry portrayed Archie Andrews' father on the hit series on The CW and both actor KJ Apa (Archie) and Perry had grown to have a special bond. The same was true of the entirety of the Riverdale cast, and as such it was decided that the team would end up having a special episode dedicated just to Perry.

The first episode of Season 4, airing Oct. 9 on The CW, is called "Chapter Fifty-Eight: In Memoriam," and will feature a touching tribute to Luke Perry as well as his character Fred Andrews. Because Perry passed away so unexpectedly, the Riverdale team had to figure out a way to honor Perry and Fred. The show would obviously have to go on without Fred, but how did the show pull it off? Here's what we know so far about how Perry's passing will ultimately affect Fred Andrews as a character.
