A slightly darker take on the comic books, the show follows Archie's slightly twisted life in Riverdale. In 2019, Luke Perry, who played Archie's dad Fred, passed away from a stroke. His character was killed off-screen by a speeding car while helping someone else who had a flat tire. 

Riverdale has a shared universe with the Netflix series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Katy Keene
