Riverdale’s new season doesn’t drop for another month and we’re already emotional!

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Riverdale’s showrunner, shared an emotional photo on social media of Archie’s character hugging his mother, Mary, with the caption: ‘no words’.

This comes after Roberto confirmed that season 4 of the show will be a tribute to the late actor, Luke Perry, who died after a stroke earlier this year.

The show will also be mourning the death of Luke’s character, Fred, which means an extra heart-breaking season of the show.

Luke’s friend and former Beverly Hills, 90210 co-star, Shannon Doherty, will be helping to address the on-screen death.

At the 2019 Television Critics Association summer press tour, Roberto was promoting spinoff Katy Keene, and told reporters that Shannon ‘plays a really important part and plays it beautifully’.

He said: “I think it's a real tribute to Luke. I think it's a real tribute to Fred. I think it's very cathartic to watch it and I think everyone really came together, specifically to tell this kind of story.

“The honour Luke and honour Fred…It's a really simple—it's one of our…just beautiful."

He explained that the first episode will be set on 4th July and will be a ‘stand-alone’ episode. It is set to ‘reveal the fate of Fred Andrews’.

He said: “It's a really emotional episode; it's a tear-jerker. We had the table read for it and I’m not going to lie; we were all crying.

“They were both such amazing human beings that we wanted to really, really craft an emotional and deep tribute to him, which is what I hope this episode is.”
