Perry portrayed a fan-favorite character in the form of Fred, also the father of one of the shows leading figures, 'Archie Andrews' (KJ Appa).
Aguirre-Sacasa posted the picture, which depicts Archie, differentiated from the other main casts including 'Betty' (Lilli Reinhart), 'Jughead' (Cole Sprouse), 'Veronica' (Camila Mendes) and 'Cheryl' (Madeline Petsch) viewing on as they discuss among themselves.

The beautifully framed shot is one of the first insinuations of what the fourth season will delve about and pursues Aguirre-Sacasa’s responses that every upcoming episode of the show will be a tribute to the late actor.
The first episode of the impending season is set to be titled Chapter Fifty-Eight: IN MEMORIAM. Roberto Aguirre Sacasa wrote in June that this was the “most important episode of Riverdale we’ll do this year, if not ever.”

Perry suffered a significant ischemic stroke at his home in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles on February 27, 2019. After a second episode, his family considered the medical team's suggestions to remove him from life support, and he died on March 4 at age 52. Perry's death certificate claimed he was buried near his home in Vanleer, Tennessee, where he had a farm and lived since 1995 when out of Hollywood, and was a supporter for flood control and volunteered for other local issues.
However, it was later reported that his body was cremated and his ashes were scattered on his farm. On May 4, 2019, it was announced that his daughter Sophie had an Instagram post about how her father was not burnt to ashes, rather buried on the grounds of his Tennessee farm in an Infinity Burial Suit fabricated from mushrooms.
