Boy Meets World Reunion

A couple of years ago, during a surge of nostalgic revival of shows from decades past, The Disney Channel brought Girls Meets World to air. The comedy series is a follow-up to the ABC sitcom Boy Meets World from the 1990s, which followed best friends Cory (Ben Savage) and Shawn (Rider Strong) as they grow up into young men and learn life lessons from their teacher Mr. Feeny (William Daniels). Girl Meets World follows that same formula, but instead it follows Cory’s daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) as they navigate adolescence as young girls, learning some of the same lessons, but entirely new ones as well.

While the sequel series has brought back several cast members from Boy Meets World in recurring guest roles, it has never seen the kind of reunion that was teased in a cast photo featuring all of the primary players from Boy Meets World united with the cast of Girl Meets World. Check out the photo after the jump. Read More »
