On March 4, 2019, the Riverdale actor and 90210 star Luke Perry died from a massive stroke.

On February 27th, it was reported that Luke had a stroke at his home in Sherman Oaks, CA. Although he was in the hospital because of a massive stroke, we don’t quite know the cause of death yet. However, some people are saying that his death was because of  old age. Nearly all strokes occur in people over the age of 65 and the risk doubles each decade over the age of 55 yet, Luke was only 52 when this happened.

This has affected the fans and especially, the cast of Riverdale for many reasons. Luke Perry played the role in Riverdale as Archie’s dad who appears in the show frequently,  making it hard to write him off of the show. This can also change the plot of the story behind Riverdale because Archie was supposed to be a  “perfect,” artistic jock that has a good relationship with his father. His father leaving or dying would most likely affect how Archie acts, maybe more depressed which would change the plot a lot. Riverdale has aired one episode after the death and Luke had only appeared in a little bit of it though.

¨I felt really depressed because he was a big part of the show, and with him gone it was like the whole show was gone¨ 7th grader, Savannah Johansen had said.

The cast of Riverdale has reacted to his death and they are currently recovering from this tragic event. Co-worker Lili Reinhart posted on social media saying, ¨I’m finding it hard to grasp that he will no longer be around to give long hugs and share his wisdom and kindness with all of us.¨
