The CW has suspended production on Riverdale, after the news of Luke Perry's death, following his stroke on Monday.
Filming of Riverdale - on which Luke played Fred Andrews - has been stopped, to allow the cast and crew time to mourn their friend.
Luke died on Monday, 4 March 2019, at his home in California.
The CW shared a lengthy statement following Luke's death, after he appeared in Riverdale since the start in 2016; "Luke was everything you would hope he would be: an incredibly caring, consummate professional with a giant heart, and a true friend to all."
The brief pause in production should allow the writers to write a proper send-off for Luke and his character, Fred.
