Riverdale’s Luke Perry Dead At 52

Riverdale and Beverly Hills, 90210 actor Luke Perry has died at 52. He was hospitalized last week following a stroke.

Riverdale executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, and Jon Goldwater issued a statement in conjunction with the CW and Warner Bros. TV.


“We are deeply saddened to learn today about the passing of Luke Perry. A beloved member of the ‘Riverdale,’ Warner Bros. and CW family, Luke was everything you would hope he would be: an incredibly caring, consummate professional with a giant heart, and a true friend to all. A father figure and mentor to the show’s young cast, Luke was incredibly generous, and he infused the set with love and kindness. Our thoughts are with Luke’s family during this most difficult time.”

Perry’s other credits include The Fifth Element, Oz, and Jeremiah.
