How Does Fred Andrews Die On 'Riverdale'? Find Out Here

The fourth season of Riverdale kicked off last night (October 9) with a very emotional Luke Perry tribute.

In the beginning of the episode, Archie (KJ Apa) receives a phone call that his father Fred has died.

During the episode, he has to grasp the fact that his dad is gone and how he’s going to continue his legacy.

While Riverdale showrunners were reluctant to tackle how Fred died this season, they decided that an episode at the beginning of the season was the best way to pay tribute to the late actor.

“Very early on, we landed on the idea that Fred should have a heroic death and that would be impactful for Archie,” Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa tells EW. “It felt like that’s a way that Fred could have gone. After that, we said this episode really isn’t going to launch any huge stories for this season. It was really going to be focused on that and the emotional effects of that passing for everyone.”
