On Monday, actress Mädchen Amick, who plays Alice Cooper on the series, shared a sweet selfie, above, with her co-stars sitting at a table reading for the Season 4 premiere episode, which is titled "Chapter Fifty-Eight: IN MEMORIAM."
"There was nothing but love, memories and mourning for our beloved Luke as we honor him in our first episode back," Amick captioned the post. "#wemissyouluke #inmemoriam #riverdale #S4 #tableread"
The show's creator, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, announced last month that "Riverdale" will honor Perry when the series returns for its fourth season this fall. The actor played the character of Fred Andrews on the series until he tragically passed away last March.
"Probably the most important episode of Riverdale we'll do this year, if not ever," Aguirre-Sacasa tweeted about the episode. "A tribute to our fallen friend. Thankful for this opportunity to honor Luke and Fred."

Perry passed away at the age of 52 on March 4 at St. Joseph's Hospital in Burbank, days after suffering a "massive" stroke at his Los Angeles home. The "Beverly Hills, 90210" star is survived by his two children, Jack, 21, and Sophie, 18, his kids with ex-wife, Rachel Minnie Sharp.
Perry's final episode of "Riverdale" aired on April 25. Although he was only in one scene, it was touching, poignant, and appropriate. Viewers witnessed Perry's final moments on the show doing what his character, Fred, did best: giving his son, Archie, (KJ Apa) advice.
It's unclear how they will pay tribute to Perry in the Season 4 premiere, but if Aguirre-Sacasa's tweet is any indication, we'll definitely need tissues.
Season 4 of "Riverdale" premieres Wednesday, October 9 at 8 p.m. The CW.
