The recent death of actor Luke Perry left those who loved him reeling, including his former "Beverly Hills, 90210" co-stars. With a reboot of the series announced just before he died, CBS TV Studios' president, David Stapf, said Monday that the show will honor him in some way, according to Variety.
"How we deal with that moving forward is yet to be determined," he said. "That's something the writers are going to have to figure out."
Stapf noted that Perry wasn't one of the six original "90210" actors who signed on for the upcoming series. The reboot's stars include Tori Spelling, Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, and Brian Austin Green. Although Perry was not among them due to his commitment to "Riverdale," he did plan to fit in "as many" reboot appearances as he could, said Spelling (via Variety).
Perry died on March 4 after suffering a stroke. He had been hospitalized days before, but he never recovered. Following his death, his "90210" co-stars joined the outpouring of love. We look forward to seeing how they honor their late co-star when the time comes.
