"Riverdale" and "Beverly Hills, 90210" star Luke Perry was hospitalized following a stroke.

"We received a 911 call at 9:39 a.m. yesterday", a spokesperson for the Los Angeles City Fire Department told ET on Thursday.

Perry has also played construction construction-company owner Fred Andrews, father of main character Archie Andrews, for three seasons on Riverdale. Perry was not announced as one of the returning stars, with Entertainment Tonight reporting that he had scheduling conflicts with Riverdale.

News of Perry's stroke was first reported by TMZ.

Reaction on social media was swift to news of Perry's hospitalization.

Our thoughts are with Perry and his family during this hard time!

Unvaccinated boy suspected of bringing measles to Costa Rica
A boy from France who arrived in Costa Rica with his family earlier this month may have reintroduced measles to the country. Three deaths were recorded in 2018 - including a 17-year-old and a 32-year-old in the Nouvelle Aquitaine region.

In a statement, a representative for the actor said: "Mr. Perry is now under observation at the hospital".

It is not clear who was home with Perry, if anyone, when he suffered his stroke.

In 2015, Perry was treated for precancerous growths after a colonoscopy. "So he will do as many episodes as he can".

When reached by TV Guide, The CW offered no additional comment.

- The original stars of "Beverly Hills, 90210" are planning a high school reunion with a twist.
