It's only been a few days since news broke Luke Perry died. The 52-year-old sadly had a stroke he was unable to recover from that claimed his life. Since then, former costars, like Shannen Doherty and Luke's daughter, have spoken out about the man we loved so much throughout the years. With so much heartache over his passing, Pop TV is paying tribute to Luke Perry with a special Beverly Hills, 90210 marathon.

  • The network will celebrate Luke's legacy with a "Best of Dylan McKay" marathon set to air on March 8.

    The marathon, which will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., will include some of Luke's most memorable episodes on 90210. It's reported fans of the show who don't catch the special marathon on March 8 can tune in March 10 (same time) to watch.

    For those jonesing to relive the '90s teen drama, Pop TV will begin reairing episodes from the series, beginning with the first on Monday, March 11.

  • While the tribute won't soften the blow of losing Luke, it does allow fans of his to honor an iconic character he played.

    It's still so crazy to think of Luke Perry being on life support (his family made the decision to take him off on March 4) days after a massive stroke. Aside from playing Dylan McKay, we loved seeing him as Archie's dad in Riverdale -- and in all those Hallmark movies.

  • Luke's stroke came one day after the first peek at the upcoming Beverly Hills, 90210 revival hit the Internet.

    The 90210 teaser was bittersweet as we can't wait to see how the gang from West Beverly comes back. Luke reportedly wasn't going to be a regular due to commitments for Riverdale. Still, it's hard to think about the show now, especially because Dylan is gone.

  • We'll be tuning in.

    Honestly, we haven't come to grips with Luke's death and likely will take a long time to finally realize he's no longer (physically) with us.
