Some people have already kicked off the marathon and are sharing their many, many emotions on Twitter. Also, they had their own takes on which classic Dylan McKay episodes should have made the cut.
Looking at the guide… how is the episode when Toni dies not being played for the best of Dylan McKay?!? That episode was a Luke Perry acting tour de force and is the only episode of #BeverlyHills90210 that makes me ugly cry. pic.twitter.com/P36pjWZGaa

Perry’s 90210 family have penned a whole series of beautiful, gut-wrenching tributes to their friend and former co-star. Jason Priestley, who played Brandon Walsh, took to Instagram to share some loving words about the actor.
“Luke was much more than just a friend to me,” Priestley wrote. “He was also my teammate, my teacher, my sounding board, my compass, my brother… Luke was truly one of a kind… he adored his family, was passionate about his work, and loved his wide collection of friends… every life he touched, he made better.”
