On the last day of the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and the cast of Riverdale; KJ Apa, Lili Reinhart, Camila Mendes, Cole Sprouse, and Madelaine Petsch announced a tribute episode will air for the late Luke Perry. The episode, titled “Chapter Fifty-Eight: In Memoriam,” will “reflect Luke Perry’s enduring legacy and the indelible imprint his character, Fred Andrews, had on Riverdale,” according to the official logline.

Appearing in the episode will include Perry's longtime friend and Beverly Hills 90210 co-star, Shannen Doherty. Perry had been wanting her to make a guest appearance on the show, even before Perry's death. The role Doherty will be playing was not mentioned.

“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.”

In addition, Kerr Smith has been cast in a recurring role as Riverdale High’s new principal, Mr. Honey. The character is described as “a bit of a hard-ass who takes a harder line with the students this year, especially with the seniors.” He will first appear in Episode 2, titled “Chapter Fifty-Nine: Fast Times at Riverdale High.”
