Someone must have done the Feeny call, because Cory’s mentor showed up on the set of his new Disney Channel series!
Remember when Rider Strong and Will Friedle stopped by the Girl Meets World set a few days ago? Yeah, this news blows that completely out of the water. Mailtand Ward, who played Jack and Eric’s roommate Rachel in the later seasons, Instagrammed a behind-the-scenes photo with none other than William Daniels — aka MR. FEENY!
It appears a good chunk of the Boy Meets World gang came for the taping of the pilot — I’m not sure Jennifer Love Fefferman was on set, though — so it doubled as the cast reunion we’ve all been dying to see! When Boy Meets World first ran from 1993 to 2000, there was no Twitter — heck, the internet was barely a thing — but this is 2013, so we’re getting up-to-the-minute previews of Girl Meets World as it comes to life.
In case you’re not up to speed on Girl Meets World, it’s a spin-off of Boy Meets World that follows Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) into adulthood. Their daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) is the “girl” in question, and viewers will watch as she — like her dad so many years ago — meets the world.
The show will initially focus on Riley and her immediate family and friends, but both cast members and executive producer Michael Jacobs have suggested they’d love to have classic BMW characters make guest appearances on the Disney Channel spin-off.
