You Know That ‘Beverly Hills 90210’ Reboot? Yea, Luke Perry Died, Not Gonna Happen

Luke Perry is dead. There is no god.

Perry, 52, suffered a massive stroke last week at his Sherman Oaks home. Medics transported him to a nearby hospital. Since then, there hasn’t been much word about what happened.

We still don’t know the details, but that stroke was too powerful for Dylan. Boo.

He beat back colon cancer in 2015, but wasn’t so fortunate this time around.

Perry is known as Archie’s dad, Fred Andrews, on Riverdale, but as Shannon Doherty said when she heard the news of Dylan’s stroke, “It’s Luke, and he’s my Dylan.” He’ll always be Dylan to us.

Perry starred as the heartthrob Dylan on the original Beverly Hills 90210. There was talk of a revival, but unless they get Luke Perry the Hologram to star, it ain’t happening.

His rep gave a statement confirming Perry’s death:

Actor Luke Perry, 52, passed away today after suffering a massive stroke. He was surrounded by his children Jack and Sophie, fiancé Wendy Madison Bauer, ex-wife Minnie Sharp, mother Ann Bennett, step-father Steve Bennett, brother Tom Perry, sister Amy Coder, and other close family and friends. The family appreciates the outpouring of support and prayers that have been extended to Luke from around the world, and respectfully request privacy in this time of great mourning.  No further details will be released at this time.

I’m sure the 90210 cast is heartbroken, especially Tori Spelling, who can forget about any 90210 reboot money saving her from bankruptcy.

Luke Perry’s character died on 90210 before it ended anyway. So he wouldn’t have been in it, unless they pulled a JR and retconned his car not exploding with him in it.
