The untold truth of Luke Perry

0

While promoting Riverdale in 2017, Luke Perry told Today that he’d love to play Dylan McKay again if Beverly Hills, 90210 was ever rebooted with the original cast. “I very much would be interested in doing it this time,” he said. “I’d like to go back and work with my guys.” He added, “Yeah, I’ve been doing something else and that’s been fun, but I’d love to do scenes with Shannen (Doherty) again.”

On Dec. 20, 2018, Perry’s dream inched closer to reality when original cast members Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, and Brian Austin Green were spotted by TMZ leaving pitch meetings about a potential reboot. On Feb. 27, 2019, “a six-episode revival of the iconic 1990s hit” was confirmed. According to People, the gang will get back together to play “heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama — with a healthy dose of irreverence — that is inspired by their real lives and relationships.”

Unfortunately, Perry might not be allowed to play a significant role in the reboot. A source told Entertainment Tonight that “at this time, due to his current deal with Riverdale, Luke Perry could only guest star on a potential 90210 reboot, and could not be a series regular.”
