Madelaine Petsch & ‘Riverdale’ Cast Share Touching Memories With Luke Perry Ahead of Season Premiere

Madelaine Petsch shared a really heartfelt memory on her social media about Luke Perry, just hours before the tribute episode for the actor, and season four premiere episode of Riverdale airs.

“This photo is from my first upfronts for Riverdale, Luke walked me through the entire experience as he did with most of the new experiences I encountered after booking this show,” the 25-year-old actress shared on her Instagram. “I didn’t even know this photo existed but it explains our relationship to a T.”

Madelaine added, “He was always so generous and supportive and patient with my learning and growing through some of the most formative years of my life. I am so lucky to have known you Luke. You were one of a kind and impacted everyone’s lives in such a meaningful way.”

Lili Reinhart also took to Instagram to address tonight’s tribute: “Tonight’s episode, and all episodes for the rest of our run, are for Luke. We love, honor, and cherish his memory every single day. I only wish he were here to see how many lives he touched with happiness and laughter. I know he’s watching from above. We love you, Luke.”

Camila Mendes added on her Instagram Stories, “I’m finding it hard to express how I’m feeling but I’ll try. We put everything we have into this episode. We wanted to honor Luke’s memory in the most sincere and respectful way possible. This episode is as hard to watch as it was to make it. Actually, making it was harder. But the result is a beautiful tribute to our friend. Luke deserves that and so much more.”

Stay tuned for another sneak peek at Riverdale‘s season four premiere, and tune in @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW to watch.

Tonight Season 4 of #Riverdale premieres. With an episode that honors our friend Luke. (I love this picture of him with the boys.) It’s an episode that’s bursting with sadness, but even more so with love. I’m humbled by the outstanding, heroic work everyone did on it. I hope you like it, Luke. As Archie says about his dad, “You will always be a part of Riverdale.” 👨🏻‍💻❤️🏠👨‍👦⭐️💎
