Nearly two months after his death, Luke Perry’s final episode of Riverdale airs this week on the CW.

The show’s creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa revealed via Twitter that Wednesday’s episode is the final one Perry shot before he suffered a massive stroke and died March 4 at the age of 52.

The former Beverly Hills, 90210 star played Fred Andrews, Archie’s (KJ Apa) dad on the CW series based on the Archie comics.

“This week’s #Riverdale is the last episode Luke filmed,” Aguirre-Sacasa wrote in a tweet that included a photo of Perry. “As always, Fred’s imparting words of wisdom to Archie. A beautiful, true moment between a father and his son.

“Wish these scenes could go on forever…” Aguirre-Sacasa concluded.

It’s unclear how the show will address Perry’s death on the show.

Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 PM on The CW.
