    Luke Perry has died

    According to TMZ.

    Suffered a massive stroke just a few days ago & never recovered.

    The former Beverly Hills 90210 actor was 52. That's awful.

    Nooooo – RIP Dylan McKay!!!

    I was a big 90210 fan back in the day, and loved the chemistry between Dylan & Brenda, lol.... (Shannen Doherty).

    Prayers to his family and friends.

    His stroke occurred the same day it was announced that Beverly Hills 90210 was going to be revived for a short summer series to be aired on Fox. I believe all of the regulars, sans Perry, had agreed to return.

    That is an odd coincidence.

    Yep. And while I'm still a few years away from 52, I'm seeing more than a few people right around my age passing away, including several I grew up and went to school with. It's a reminder I'm at that age where I've lived quite a few more years than years I have left.

    He was going to guest star in a couple of episodes but he didn’t want to sign on full time because he was on Riverdale and didn’t want to renege on that commitment to that show.

    Sad day in the PP92 household. Beverly Hills 90210 holds a strong place in my heart. It was THE SHOW when I was growing up. I’ll always love Luke Perry aka the OG Dylan McKay.

    Gonna pour one out for him later. Rest In Peace, Luke!!!!

    That's what my wife just told me.

    She is heartbroken because she loved 90210. My daughter is heartbroken because she loves Riverdale.

    Riverdale is an insane mess. I have seen every episode of the first two seasons. Every time I think it can't possibly get any more ludicrous, it turns out I'm wrong. The lady friend was an avid Archie Comics reader when she was a kid so we were always going to watch it, but it just gets more and more ridiculous with every episode that goes by.

    I wonder how Riverdale will handle this because he's a MAJOR character and honestly the moral center of the show.

    902-OH-NO!

    My wife seems pretty torn up about this. I didn't realize she was that big a fan of his.

    Really hated to read this new, this morning.
    He had the best character on 90210 and in my opinion did a great job in "8 Seconds."

    Agree on all points. I liked the first season, but it has deteriorated since.

    I wonder if they will try to replace him? You don't see that very much, but his character is one of the only redeemable ones on the show.
