Luke Perry hospitalized after stroke, TMZ reports

Authorities were reportedly called to the star's Sherman Oaks, California, home around 9:40 a.m. and Perry was transported to the hospital.

On the same day of Perry's medical emergency, it was announced that his old show "Beverly Hills, 90210" will be rebooted. Perry now stars in the Netflix show "Riverdale". His former co-star Tori Spelling previously told ET that, while Perry may make several guest appearances, there were certain issues surrounding his full-time commitments to "Riverdale".

The new Beverly Hills, 90210 will see the original stars playing heightened versions of themselves, according to Fox's announcement on Thursday.


Perry was brought to a hospital shortly thereafter, and his current condition has yet to be disclosed.

Perry and Doherty are not thought to be attached. He played heartthrob Dylan McKay.

Ian Ziering wrote on Instagram, "No words can express what my heart feels hearing today's shocking news".


We wish Luke a fast and healthy recovery.

In 2009, roughly a third of people hospitalized for a stroke were under 65 years old.

It is unclear who was with the actor, a divorced father of two, at the time.


Perry has had roles in a handful of films, including "The Fifth Element", "8 Seconds" and "American Strays". Doctors found precancerous growth in his colon during a routine colonoscopy.
