​Shannen Doherty Cast in 'Riverdale' Tribute to Luke Perry
Shannen Doherty will appear in the upcoming season premiere of Riverdale, an episode that is dedicated to the late Luke Perry.
 
Doherty's guest star spot was announced yesterday (July 21) at San Diego Comic-Con by executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
 
Doherty and Perry famously starred on 90210 together, playing each other's love interests.
 
It's unclear what her role on Riverdale will be, though Aguirre-Sacasa hinted that it is "pivotal" and "super-emotional."

Perry starred as Archie Andrews' father, Fred Andrews, for the first three seasons of the CW/Netflix show.
 

The Season 4 premiere of Riverdale will air on October 9.
 
Perry passed away earlier this year, after suffering a massive stroke. He was 52. Many of his Riverdale castmates paid tribute to him on social media at the time.
