Of course, the series paid homage to Perry, who lost his life at just 52, over the span of several episodes and dedicated all future episodes to the actor. Following Perry’s death, his on-screen son Archie (KJ Apka) made reference to him being away on a business trip and the Andrews matriarch, Mary (Molly Ringwald), returned home to care for him. Season three, however, ended last night with no explanation of Fred’s (Perry) whereabouts.
So when can we expect Fred Andrews to receive a proper send-off? Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa says it will most definitely happen in season four.
