Perry is best known for his role in the hits 90s show Beverly Hills, 90210, playing Dylan McKay alongside Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, and Shannen Doherty. He currently stars as Fred Andrews on the CW series Riverdale.
On Wednesday, Fox announced a revival of Beverly Hills, 90210 featuring the original cast, although Perry wasn’t due to be involved.
Beverly Hills, 90210 ran for 10 seasons from 1990 to 2000, and it followed the exploits of a group of teens in Beverly Hills. Perry left the show after 6 seasons, returning for guest appearances in later years.

The show was revived as 90210 in 2008 and while other key cast members returned for appearances, Perry declined to come back. “The difference between CW bringing something back and Aaron Spelling doing something is significant,” he told a reporter. “And I cannot do it without Aaron.”
Perry will next be seen in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time In Hollywood.
Perry’s current condition is unknown.
