For months, fans have been anticipating the premiere of Riverdale‘s fourth season — and not for answers to a terrifying cliffhanger, but rather because the premiere episode was promised to be a tribute to Luke Perry. Perry died in March, after suffering a massive stroke, leaving behind mourning family, fans, and costars, as Riverdale still had yet to wrap its third season.

But the creative team elected to close out the season as planned, and instead, dedicate more time to saying goodbye to this figure who had loomed so large in all of their lives. The season premiere, airing tonight on The CW, finds the citizens of Riverdale dealing with the loss of the elder Andrews. “It’s the immediate aftermath of what happened to Fred, and the story is really set around Archie wrestling with this huge tragedy and his friends being there for him and helping him through it,” creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa previously told EW.

The sense that this goodbye would be something monumental has lingered since it was first announced, a sentiment buoyed by the cast’s emotional statements about it and the guest-starring appearance of Perry’s former 90210 costar Shannen Doherty. “It felt like everything — the most important thing that we had to do before doing anything else, was that,” Marisol Nichols (who plays Hermione on the show) said at EW’s video studio at New York Comic-Con.

Now, the moment has finally arrived — and the Riverdale cast is using premiere day to once again pay tribute to their fallen friend. Lili Reinhart, Madelaine Petsch, Skeet Ulrich, and more posted photos and memories honoring Perry. “Tonight’s episode, and all episodes for the rest of our run, are for Luke,” Reinhart wrote. “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.” She also posted a second memory, sharing her favorite photo of Perry taken by her costar Cole Sprouse.
