Riverdale season 4: First look at the season premiere and tribute to Luke Perry

Here’s your first official look at Riverdale season 4! The series shared three images from the season 4 premiere and tribute to Luke Perry titled “In Memoriam.”

Riverdale shared the first official look at the season 4 premiere, a tribute episode dedicated to Luke Perry, who played Fred Andrews in the series.

Perry passed away earlier this year. At the time, the Riverdale writers had completed all the scripts and stories for the season, so the show decided to wait to honor the iconic actor in the season 4 premiere. The episode is titled “In Memoriam,” and it is a standalone episode, according to a report from TV Line.

Season 4 premieres on The CW on Wednesday, Oct. 9.

We don’t know a lot about what will happen in “In Memoriam,” but it looks like it features some sort of fireworks display in Archie’s backyard. Shannen Doherty, Perry’s co-star from Beverly Hills, 90210, has joined the cast for the season 4 premiere. We’ve yet to see a picture of her character yet.

In the images below, you’ll see several main characters, including Archie (KJ Apa) and his mother (Molly Ringwald) along with the rest of the Archie’s friends, Veronica (Camila Mendes), Betty (Lili Reinhart), Jughead (Cole Sprouse), Josie (Ashleigh Murray) Kevin (Casey Cott), Reggie (Charles Melton), Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) and Toni (Vanessa Morgan).

Check out the first look at the Riverdale season 4 premiere!

Following the season 4 premiere and tribute episode, Riverdale has a crazy season in store. There’s so much we still don’t know, but we learned a lot about the new season at San Diego Comic-Con.

Jughead is going to a new school, and that’s going to set up that major flashforward from the season 3 finale. There’s going to be a Halloween episode, which is scheduled to air on Oct. 30, and there are a bunch of new cast members in the new season.

We still haven’t seen the trailer for Riverdale season 4 yet. We’re expecting that will be released in the next week or two.

Stay tuned for news about the season 4 trailer and more news about the upcoming season of the best teen drama on TV!
