(WISH) — It’s time to say goodbye to Fred Andrews. 

“Riverdale” Executive Producer, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa announced in a tweet and an Instagram post that Wednesday’s episode is the last that Perry filmed. The actor, who was only 52, passed away after suffering a stroke in March.

Perry’s final scene will be a father and son moment, Aguirre-Sacasa said in the tweet.

“As always, Fred’s imparting words of wisdom to Archie. A beautiful, true moment between a father and his son,” he said.

The CW show has not announced yet how they will handle the character’s death on-screen. There are still three new ‘Riverdale’ episodes after this week, with season three wrapping up on May 15. 

‘Riverdale’ airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on WISH-TV.
