Riverdale’s Cole Sprouse Revealed A Couple Of Episodes Will Be Dedicated To Luke Perry
Hey, Riverdale fans. We’ve got some more very important news for you guys today. We’ve just learned that Jughead Jones star Cole Sprouse recently did a new interview for his new movie “Five Feet Apart.” During this interview, of course, the topic of Riverdale and Luke Perry came up. Cole said a few words about it, including how they will deal with Luke Perry’s death in the show’s storylines.
As most of you know, Luke Perry played Archie Andrews father Fred Andrews. Luke unfortunately passed away back on Monday, March 4, 2019 after suffering a massive stroke. According to the folks over at Fox News, Cole Sprouse recently appeared on ABC’s “The View” talk show to promote his new movie.
Again, he started talking about Riverdale and Luke Perry. First, he said some loving words for Luke stating, “He was very well loved. I mean the whole world is mourning his passing, but he was one of those guys that would rather have us all laughing about his great stories than mourning for too long.”
At one point, Cole talked about how the show will deal with Luke’s passing in the storylines. He stated,”I can’t go too much into the spoilers of it, but we do have something planned narratively. We dedicated some of the episodes to him.”
So, we should all definitely plan to see some scenes that address what happened to Luke’s Fred Andrews character in the not-too-distant future. Cole obviously didn’t get into specifics. So, we don’t know exactly what they have planned yet. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Fox News pointed out that the show’s producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa posted a very touching tribute to Luke Perry on his official Instagram account. The post contained a photo of Luke Perry along with the following words: “So heartbroken about Luke. He was a father, brother, friend, and mentor. Each night before he had to shoot a scene, he’d call me and we’d talk about…everything. I will miss those calls. And my heart goes out to all his family and friends.” You guys can view that post on Roberto’s official Instagram account by Clicking Here.
Roberto also wrote of Luke in a different Instagram post the following, “Going through pictures on my way to set. From the early days. With Luke in the middle. Our heart, always. Tonight’s episode of #Riverdale finds Fred doing what he does best–helping Archie. It is dedicated to Luke, as all episodes will be for the rest of our run.” You guys can view that post Roberto’s Instagram account by Clicking Here.
As previously reported, Cole Sprouse’s brother Dylan recently revealed that the Riverdale cast is still very much broken up about Luke’s death. So, they are still very much in recovery mode right now. RIP(Rest In Peace) Luke Perry.
