These Boy Meets World Characters Will Be A Huge Part Of Girl Meets World In Season 2

If you’ve been keeping tabs on Disney’s Girl Meets World at all, you may already be aware that Ryder Strong, aka Shawn Hunter, is set to appear on the show’s upcoming Christmas episode. As if that news wasn’t cool enough, the show recently revealed that Shawn Hunter will play a bigger role in Season 2, and he’s not the only Boy Meets World star headed to the set of Girl Meets World. In fact, Will Friedle and William Daniels are also set to appear, and soon.

This week, Girl Meets world took to social media to make some big announcements. Among these was the announcement of the guest starring gigs. Not only will Friedle’s Eric, Daniels’ Feeny and Shawn Hunter show up in Season 2, but they will also reportedly be an “important part” of the new season.

Girl Meets World’s biggest selling point has always been connecting to Boy Meets World, a former ABC TGIF comedy that ran for seven seasons in the 1990s. Cory and Topanga are part of the main cast, and during Season 1, guest stars, including William Daniels, who played Mr. Feeny in the original series, and Lee Norris, who played popular side character Minkus, have returned. It’s no surprise that Girl Meets World now wants to pull in Will Friedle and Ryder Strong for stints on the show, as well. Just look at the nostalgia tied to Ryder Strong’s upcoming guest stint.

That’s not all, however. Toward the end of the epic tweet session, the writers and producer teased another returning member of the cast.

Could that mean the return of Minkus or some other side character? Could it be Angela who will appear in the series? Or maybe even Rachel or maybe even Sean's brother, Jack Hunter. The possibilities are endless, but I know one thing for certain, I'd be pleased as punch to see Frankie Stechino return to the series. (You hear that, Ethan Suplee?) New episodes of Girl Meets World air on the Disney Channel on Fridays at 8:30 p.m. ET.
