Perry stars on the show “Riverdale” and had recently been shooting episodes in Los Angeles.

TMZ noted that the medical issue occurred on the same day that Fox announced it will reboot “Beverly Hills, 90210.”

The original series was among the most popular TV shows in the 1990s.

Perry, however, didn’t sign onto the new series.

Most of the original cast will appear as heightened versions of themselves.

Posted by The Wrap on Wednesday, 27 February 2019

Former stars Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Jason Priestly, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling, and Gabrielle Carteris will be on the new series, TheWrap reported.

“‘Beverly Hills, 90210’ left an indelible impact on pop culture and an entire generation,” said Michael Thorn, the president of Fox. “Its powerful legacy is an important part of our network’s DNA – bold stories not told anywhere else and bigger-than-life-characters—and we’re honored to bring back the beloved original cast members for ‘90210.’”

The show will be produced by CBS Television Studios and Fox Entertainment.

“We have some issues because Luke [Perry] is full-time on Riverdale,” Spelling told Entertainment Tonight last month about the reboot. “So he will do as many episodes as he can. But outside of that, we pretty much have the entire original cast.”
