Speaking with Variety, executive producers Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, and Jon Goldwater also issued a statement:
We are deeply saddened to learn today about the passing of Luke Perry. A beloved member of the Riverdale, Warner Bros. and CW family, Luke was everything you would hope he would be: an incredibly caring, consummate professional with a giant heart, and a true friend to all. A father figure and mentor to the show’s young cast, Luke was incredibly generous, and he infused the set with love and kindness. Our thoughts are with Luke’s family during this most difficult time.

Lili Reinhart first posted this last week.

Perry was first rushed to the hospital for treatment on February 27; tragically, the damage he'd already suffered was too great.

Reinhart tweeted after news broke of Perry's death.

Earlier, Reinhart had simply posted a black-and-white text image to her Instagram story, writing, "I can barely find the words. I am devastated. We all are."

Perry's death hit the cast hard.

Friends and fans alike were shocked by his sudden passing; little had been revealed about Perry's condition beforehand.

The "Riverdale" writers jointly tweeted about Perry.

It's clear that Perry was loved by the entirety of the cast and crew--and that he loved them, too.

The Writers' Room twitter even changed its bio.

Whatever the writers have to do with Perry's character now that he's gone, we're sure they'll do him justice.

Ross Butler left "Riverdale" after season 1, but had plenty to say of Perry.

We lost an original today. A legend. He paved the way for us. Although we didn't work much together, he always greeted me with a smile, had a joke ready, and a story to tell. Rest in peace, Luke. Rest easy. -ross butler

Molly Ringwald expressed her sorrow, too.

The actress was Perry's fellow cast member; she plays Mary Andrews on Riverdale.

Perry was a mentor to many of the younger cast.

This includes Casey Cott, who plays series regular Kevin Keller on the CW series.

Cott also posted this to Instagram:

Love you my brother. -casey cott

Mädchen Amick posted this statement to Instagram:

The two both played parents on Riverdale. Perry was Frank, and Amick plays Alice Cooper, the mother of Betty.

Cole Sprouse posted this when Perry was first hospitalized.

Sprouse is also a professional photographer, so it's not surprising he got this touching candid shot of Perry.

Madelaine Petsch had much love for Perry as well.

Luke, I am so lucky to have known you & gotten so close to you these last 3 years. You were such a light in our lives; the most genuine & kind soul I will ever know. From day one of this show, you were the most amazing mentor to me. Thank you for teaching me not only about this industry but also about kindness and being a family and how to foster and nurture those important relationships… you were the absolute best at that. I love you Luke, you and those sweet forehead kisses will forever be missed. -madelame

So it's not surprising that all future "Riverdale" episodes will be dedicated to Perry.

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Riverdale's creator, reacted to Perry's death over Instagram.

Then, Aguirre-Sacasa made the announcement in a follow-up post.

Going through pictures on my way to set. From the early days. With Luke in the middle. Our heart, always. Tonight’s episode of #Riverdale finds Fred doing what he does best--helping Archie. It is dedicated to Luke, as all episodes will be for the rest of our run. -writerras

Dearest Luke, I will forever bask in the loving memories we've shared over the last thirty years. May your journey forward be enriched by the magnificent souls who have passed before you, just like you have done here for those you leave behind. God please give him a seat close to you, he deserves it. -Ian Ziering

Shannen Doherty spoke with PEOPLE about Perry's passing.

"I am in shock. Heartbroken. Devastated by the loss of my friend. I have so many memories with Luke that make me smile and that are forever imprinted on my heart and mind," she told PEOPLE. "Luke was a smart, quiet, humble and complex man with a heart of gold and a never-ending well of integrity and love. Luke reached out to me during my cancer journey and we picked right back up, albeit older and wiser, but that connection remained intact."

Doherty also spoke of the things Perry had treasured in life.

She told PEOPLE about how much Perry loved his family, saying that he "raved about his kids and how proud he was of them. They were his heart and for him, his biggest accomplishment."

Sophie, his 18-year-old daughter, posted to Instagram the day after Perry died. Jack, his 21-year-old son, only just broke his silence today.

Here are Sophie's words:

A lot has happened in this past week for me. Everything is happening so fast. I made it back from Malawi just in time to be here with my family, And in the past 24 hours I have received an overwhelming amount of love and support. I cannot individually respond to the hundreds of beautiful and heartfelt messages, but I see them and appreciate you all for sending positivity to my family and I.  -lemonperry

Sophie also thanked everyone for their support.

I’m not really sure what to say or do in this situation, it’s something you aren’t ever given a lesson on how to handle, especially when it’s all happening in the public eye. So bear with me and know that I am grateful for all the love. Just, being grateful quietly. -lemonperry

Perry's son Jack posted a tribute of his own.

He was a lot of things to a lot of people. To me, he was always Dad. He loved supported me in everything, and inspired me to be the best that I could possibly be. I’ve learned so much from you, and my heart is broken thinking about everything you won’t be here for. I’ll miss you every day that I walk this earth. I’ll do whatever I can to carry on your legacy and make you proud. I love you Dad. -boy_myth_legend
