You can take the star out of the zip code, but you can’t take the zip code out of the star.

That was clear when the cast of 90210 got together over the weekend for the most epic TV reunion ever!

Sixteen years after the teen drama’s final episode aired, Jennie Garth (Kelly), Luke Perry (Dylan) Jason Priestley (Brandon), and Tori Spelling (Donna) reunited at REWindCon in Bloomingdale, Illinois!

The ’80s and ’90s-centric fan convention allowed the actors to reunite for photos, panels, and meet and greets — but unfortunately not everyone could make the class reunion.

The most notable absence was Shannen Doherty, who had to skip out on the event due to breast cancer treatments.

But her TV classmates made sure Brenda’s presence was felt with touching tributes to their former costar. Perry, who played Doherty’s boyfriend Dylan for years, said:

“None of us are up here today without Shannen. She’s been through a lot. She’s not doing well right now, but sometimes her contributions are minimized.”

While the cast had a contentious past with the ’90s bad girl, Perry acknowledged Doherty had much to do with the show being such a hit. He added:

“She’s been thrown under the bus. I’ve been accused of driving it. But she’s a very big part of the success of this show. She taught me a lot. I’m glad she was my scene partner. She was great at what she did in the character with me.”

After naming Brenda and Dylan as his fave couple from the series, Perry compared his costar Garth — who played his other TV girlfriend, Kelly — to the Brady Bunch‘s Florence Henderson! LOLz!

Garth also paid tribute to Doherty on Instagram, posting the words “Fight like a Brenda” complete with a heartfelt caption about her friend’s strength. She shared:

AH-Mazing!! We love to see that this cast still means so much to one another after all these years!
