It’s a little hard not to be in shock right now. Just days after the OG 90210 cast announced they’re coming back this summer for a limited episode run, star Luke Perry (who was rumoured to only be a guest star in the revival) suffered a major stroke.

Fast forward to Monday, five short days later, and the 52-year-old has died.

“[Perry] 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,” Perry’s rep said in a statement. “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.”

We’re gutted. It’s almost like a piece of our childhood is now gone with Perry’s untimely death; there really are no words. Obviously tons of fans took to social media to share their love and grief, and we’re having a hard time not sobbing.

Obviously most of us knew Perry from his days as Dylan McKay. But ever since graduating from the 90210 class he’s has had a constant stream of TV and film projects, including the Buffy the Vampire Slayer film and his latest gig as Archie Andrews’ father on Riverdale. His death really is cross-generational in that respect.

Given how many people he’s touched in Hollywood, reactions from that quarter are flooding in.

So far, no one from the 90210 or Riverdale squad (other than Molly Ringwald) have publicly commented on Perry’s death. But they were in his corner these last few days, sharing messages of hope.

It’s too sad. Our thoughts go out to Perry’s family, as well as everyone he’s touched over the years. Life really is too short.
