Rowan Blanchard was cast as Cory and Topanga’s daughter, Riley. While being questioned on the red carpet, she admits that she has obviously met Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, but what about the other original cast members? Although Rider Strong has not yet officially signed on to reprise his role of Shawn Hunter, he has stopped by on set and met the precocious young actress. Rowan Blanchard says she has also met Will Friedle (Eric Matthews), Maitland Ward (Rachel McGuire), and perhaps most excitingly, William Daniels (Mr. Feeny.)
When asked if any of the original cast members will be making an appearance, Rowan Blanchard reveals that the creator of both “Boy Meets World” and “Girl Meets World” that, “Everyone will be making a guest star appearance hopefully.”
Mr. Turner was a perfect mixture of friend and mentor for Shawn, Cory and Topanga. He helped further the development and maturity of Boy Meets World. After Mr. Turners motorcycle accident in Boy Meets World, there has been very little talk about what happened to him. Did he get married? Is he still a teacher? Did he open up his own barber shop that only features the ‘mullet’?!
Well according to Michael Jacobs, we’ll find out soon enough in Girl Meets World, “If I get my way, you will find out what happened to Mr. Turner, and you will find out what happened to everybody,” he told EW during an interview for the annual EW reunions issue. “[Quinn] was one of the first people who got in touch with me after [Girl Meets World] was announced. And what it made me realize is not only does the audience, but the people who were on the show have a fondness for [the show]. So I will not answer your question…because I will answer the question on the series.”
All in all, Michael Jacobs asks of us just one thing: patience. You know what? Sign us up! If that means we could possibly see Mr.Turner/Shawn/Eric/Jack/Rachel/Angela in the future then patience will be our friend.
After the Mr. Turner announcement, we later found out via an OKMagazine interview with Betsy Randle and Maitland Ward that Amy and Alan will be a part of the Girl Meets World series eventually! And makes sense, they are the greatest parents ever.
One more thing….what ever happened to Josh Mathews? Will be see that little dude too? Or will he disappear like Shawn’s sister and Topanga’s sister did? We’ll find out soon enough.
