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.
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.
