Actor Luke Perry is reportedly “under observation” at the hospital after the Riverdale star apparently suffered a “massive” stroke on Wednesday, February 27.

TMZ, who was first to report the news said that paramedics were called to Perry’s home in Sherman Oaks, California around 9:40 in the morning on Wednesday after receiving a call that someone was suffering a stroke and Perry was quickly transported to a nearby hospital.

A rep for the 52-year-old actor told PEOPLE, “Mr. Perry is currently under observation at the hospital.”

Back in 2015, Perry suffered another health scare when he revealed that a colonoscopy came back with results that he had precancerous growths.

The actor’s health crisis came on the same day that it was announced that Beverly Hills, 90210 was getting a reboot with the original cast, but Perry was not connected to it presumably because of his commitments to starring as Fred Andrews on the hit teen drama Riverdale.

Although the show shot Perry to fame as Dylan McKay in the 1990s and his original costars Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering have all signed on to the new project, Perry along with Shannen Doherty have not.

“The core cast will all play heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama — with a healthy dose of irreverence – that is inspired by their real lives and relationships. Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot up and running. But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast — whom the whole world watched grow up together — attempts to continue from where they left off?” a description for the upcoming series reads.
