By Cydeni Carter

PHOENIX – The CW drama series Riverdale stopped production on Monday to allow cast members to mourn the death of their co-star, Luke Perry, who died Monday after suffering a massive stroke last week.

Perry played Fred Andrews, Archie’s father in Riverdale. They had been filming for the show, shortly before his stroke. According to the Riverdale Writers Room Twitter account, they will be dedicating all of Season 3 to Perry.

Production will remain shut down on Tuesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Perry was also known for his role as Dylan McKay in Beverly Hills, 90210.

Many of his Riverdale and 90210 co-stars have shared messages of love for the actor:

Molly Ringwald – Mary Andrews (Riverdale)

Lili Reinhart – Betty Cooper (Riverdale)

Ian Ziering – Steve Sanders (90210)

Emma Caulfield – Susan Keats (90210)
