The Philadelphia we grew up with was filled with long-haired rapscallions and sage, bespectacled senior citizens. It was an era cherished by all… and an era that, against all odds, has promised to return. But the large and vociferous community of Boy Meets World fans holds strong to its apprehension: could Michael Jacobs’ sequel series Girl Meets World possibly live up to its predecessor? Even with stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel center stage, we worry that the new program won’t quite capture the ’90s family comedy’s spark or style.
But the cast is bent on assuring us that Girl Meets World will in fact be a faithful return to the old favorite’s goofy adolescent lens. The set of the developing sitcom welcomed visitors from Philly yore: young GMW stars Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter tweeted images of a Boy reunion. Rider Strong (Shawn Hunter), Will Friedle (Eric Matthews), and Maitland Ward (Rachel McGuire), who herself shared a photo of perhaps the greatest visitor of them all: William Daniels, a.k.a. the great George Feeny. Soak in the nostalgia below!
Does this mean we’ll be seeing Fake Uncle Shawn, Real Uncle Eric, Too-Tenuously-Connected-to-Be-Called-Aunt Rachel, and Family Godfather Feeny showing up on Girl Meets World? It’s at least a good sign!
