In a twist of fate, Fox unveiled its decision to revive Beverly Hills, 90210 with a summer run the same day the actor's medical emergency is reported to have occurred. 

Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Jason Priestly, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling, and Gabrielle Carteris are the stars slated to return.

While not being part of the official cast due to his Riverdale commitments, Spelling recently dished that Perry would appear in as many episodes as he could. 

The revival news was swirling for months, but Perry and Shannen Doherty's names were missing, and many reports are saying that Doherty will definitely not be staging a comeback.

As for what the new iteration of the series is about?

Allow the official synopsis to fill in the blanks:

Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot up and running.

But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast – whom the whole world watched grow up together – attempts to continue from where they left off?

Perry has also appeared on Criminal Minds, Major Crimes, Community, Body of Proof and Will & Grace.

Luke Perry Quotes

Mr. Andrews: I need you to tell me the truth about something. I know my son has passion for music, but does he have talent? See, I want to be supportive but as a parent, it's really hard to watch your kid chase a dream they may never catch when real opportunities are passing them by.
Ms. Grundy: Mr. Andrews, Archie...he has talent. Unquestionably. I'm not gonna lie to you, he is coming to it late and he's got a lot of catching up to do. And there's an entire world of competition out there.
Mr. Andrews: Will he be able to make a living at it?
Ms. Grundy: It'd be a shame if he didn't at least try.

Fred: Was it close at least?
Hermione: Very. Less than 200 hundred votes.
Sierra: So what? You came to gloat?
Hermione: No, Sierra, I came to tell Fred that he ran a great campaign.
