Disney Channel just released a photo from an upcoming episode of Girl Meets World, and it appears that Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) and their kids will be joined for dinner by some Boy Meets World faves: William Russ, Betsy Randle, and…Rider Strong! A rep for the show confirmed to EW it’s for a holiday episode.
Russ and Randle played Cory’s parents on the original series; Strong, of course, portrayed Cory’s BFF Shawn. This is the first confirmation fans have gotten that any of them will return on the new show.
Fishel also tweeted the above photo, adding the message: “Happy to have these familiar faces on set with us this week!”
The Girl Meets World writers room officially launched their Twitter account with the handle, @GMWWriters, a mere 23 hours ago, but they’ve already got all of us living withBoy Meets World nostalgia in a stir. The account, that’s validity was confirmed by Danielle Fishel yesterday and is followed by the actress formerly known as Topanga Lawrence and Ben Savage, has only tweeted three times so far, but glorious and fan frenzy-inspiring tweets they have been. Ever since Disney announced their plans to build a sequel to everyone’s favorite show we’ve all been wondering whether or not and when we’d get to see some of the familiar faces we grew to love in the 90s and now we know that we will.
The writers’ first tweet played on the famous first words of Morgan Matthews upon her return as an adolescent after a long, unexplained absence, “That was the longest time out I’ve ever had!” And their subsequent tweets have been teasing that they’ve chosen the show’s first former Boy Meets World cast guest star. That’s right, your dreams for Girl Meets World are officially going to come true — it’s going to be as nostalgic as you were hoping it’d be. Now it’s only a matter of who from the BMW cast will be the first to return, here’s the top five guest stars we’d want to see.
First, the tweets that have our imaginations spinning out of control as to who the first guest star will be:
Fade in: Our thirteen year summer is over. Longest timeout ever.
