Although Perry was not involved in the new project, his former Beverly Hills co-stars Jason Priestley, Ian Ziering, Brian Austin Green, Jennie Garth, Gabrielle Carteris, and Tori Spelling have their roles in the series.

Perry’s untimely demise is a grim reminder that stroke is the fifth major cause of death in the United States. Each year, approximately 142,000 people suffer from stroke while many are left disabled due to it.
