Sure, I may have my issues with BH90210, but it really wouldn’t be me if I didn’t.
But I do like the actors and I will miss Luke Perry on the reboot. I miss him as an actor already. His loss will definitely continue to be felt deep on Riverdale.
And I am so moved to see that one of Perry’s 90210 co-stars will be joining the Riverdale cast for a special episode. Shannen Doherty will be coming on for “Chapter Fifty-Eight: In Memoriam.” It was announced at San Diego Comic Con.
The official log line says that the episode will, “reflect Luke Perry’s enduring legacy and the indelible imprint his character, Fred Andrews, had on Riverdale.”
No word on Doherty’s character, but we’ll definitely be watching.
Why Doherty? Well producer Aguirre-Sacasa and Perry had been planning for a long time for Doherty to make a guest appearance on Riverdale.
“They were such good friends, and when we were putting together this tribute episode, we wanted to make it as special as possible, and so we asked Shannen to do a pivotal, super-emotional role,” Aguirre-Sacasa said. “She read the script and immediately said ‘yes.’ It’s very impactful.”
Riverdale returns Wednesday, Oct. 9 on The CW.
