Filming on Riverdale has resumed.
On Wednesday, March 6, the set of the CWs series reopened their doors after shutting down production for two days to allow the cast and crew mourn the death of co-star Luke Perry. Production on the show as suspended the morning of Monday, March 4th, shortly after Perry died from complications following a massive stroke.
Luke Perry played Archies father Fred Andrews on the show, based on the Archie comics. The Wednesday nights episode of Riverdale, the first episode since Perrys death, honored the actor.
Deadline reports that while production as suspended, the writers are believed to have worked on tweaking the scripts for a remaining couple of episodes from Season 3 following Luke Perrys passing.
Going through pictures on my way to set, Riverdale developer/executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa wrote on Instagram Wednesday morning next to a group cast photo, featuring Perry, from the shows early days.
