Luke Perry is back in John From Cincinnati!
90210 fans rejoice! Luke Perry may not be returning to the Peach Pit just yet, but he will be starring in gritty new surfer drama John From Cincinnati which is coming to FX in November.

The series, created by Deadwood’s David Milch, tells the story of surfing’s most dysfunctional family, the Yosts, who, despite their amazing surfboard talents, live a meagre life on California’s Imperial Beach. Their lives are thrown into chaos when the mysterious John Monad (Austin Nichols) suddenly arrives, triggering all kinds of paranormal events.

Perry is cash hungry promoter Linc Stark, who is still blamed for standing by while his former client and star surfer Butchie Yost (Brian Van Holt) became hooked on drugs. The series co-stars Rebecca de Mornay as matriarch Cissy Yost and Bruce Greenwood as her zenned out husband Mitch Yost.

And Luke Perry isn’t the only blast from the past in the show. Saved by the Bell alumnus Mark-Paul
