‘90210’ Cast Reunites For Reboot Two Months After Luke Perry’s Death
It's been two months since former castmate Luke Perry died from a stroke at age 52.
It what would have made for a bittersweet moment, the OG cast of '90s drama '90210' reunited in preparation for the show's reboot.
Gabrielle Carteris, who played Andrea Zuckerman in the original series, shared a photo of herself, Shannen Doherty, Tori Spelling, Ian Ziering, Jason Priestley, and Brian Austin Green together for a table read for the refreshed series.
“Working hard!” Carteris captioned the photo “Can’t wait to show you what we’ve been up to!”
Following Luke Perry's shock death on March 4, the cast had gathered together in the wake of their friend and colleague's passing, with Brian Austin Green revealing on his podcast that some of the cast had met up at Carteris’ house to honour their friend.
“[I saw] people I hadn’t seen in at least 18 years, at least,” he said. “It was very mixed emotions because you were happy to see everybody and you felt like, ‘God, it’s been so long’ … but what a horrible reason to have to see everybody again.”
While Perry was not set to star in the reboot of the iconic show due to his commitments playing Fred Andrews on 'Riverdale', CBS TV Studios President David Stapf previously said that the show would pay tribute to the late star in one form or another.
“That’s something the writers are going to have to figure out," he said.
Just last week, the final episode that Perry had filmed for 'Riverdale' aired, with showrunner Robert Aguirre Sacasa saying, "As always, Fred’s imparting words of wisdom to Archie. A beautiful, true moment between a father and his son. Wish these scenes could go on forever..."
The 'Riverdale' team also confirmed that they will be addressing the star's death on screen, but as of mid-March were still figuring out to approach the situation.
