Entire ‘Boy Meets World’ Cast Offered Sequel Roles

boy meets world sequel casting Entire Boy Meets World Cast Offered Sequel Roles

Ever since word first dropped that Girl Meets World, a sequel to Boy Meets World, was in development, fans of the ABC series have been wondering who from the cast will be making an appearance. According to series creator Michael Jacobs, the entire original cast has been offered roles in the new show.

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter about the highly-anticipated sequel, Jacobs, who co-created the original series, revealed that he had, following the initial announcement of Girl Meets World, spoke to the Boy Meets World cast about what their roles could be in the new show.

Here’s what Jacob’s had to say:

[At the time] it was an idea that Gary Marsh, Adam Bonnett, Corey Marsh and the Disney Channel people called me up asking if I would be interested in doing this. It just got an official green light for pilot. I didn’t want to talk to everybody about something that was only a discussion. Then the world reacted and I got a bajillionphone calls. Rider [Strong] and Will Friedle and all of the cast said, “What is this? We thought we were done!” We sat down with them and talked about what their roles on the show might be. Whoever wants to be part of this show will be and whoever wants to move on will. The most important thing is to see what the show is and then see what their part in it will be. Will Friedle said, “I will be at every taping.” Everybody is quite attached to it. The bottom line is: Will Rider or Will be a cast member? Will they put in appearances? Maybe, maybe not. We’ll see.

For fans of the original series, hearing that the entire cast has been approached for the sequel certainly speaks to Jacob’s earnest intentions of truly continuing the story he started almost a decade ago. Of course, who exactly was included in the “entire cast” conversation and who will be joining the show is still up in the air. Even so, it’s likely that Strong will return as Shawn Hunter. Will Friedle’s involvement, however, has always been the big question – and still is.

Friedle, who purposefully removed himself from any on-camera work, choosing, instead, to focus on his voice work, will ultimately have to decide whether or not he’s ready to step back in the role of Eric Matthews, Corey’s lovably hilarious brother. That being said, if there was anything that will get Friedle to return to on-camera acting, it’s definitely Girl Meets World.

As Girl Meets World continues its development, more news about who actually will be returning will be released, and fans will either be happy or sad. Until then, fans of the original series can rest easy knowing that Disney Channel is, surprisingly, doing their part to make sure that fans old and new will receive the best possible sequel. And, if by chance, Friedle doesn’t make an early appearance on the series, the fact that he’ll be at every taping means that they should be able to coax him back for at least one well deserved “FEEEENY.”

  1. News is 2mins old, already 48.000 votes……… Screenrant, update your spamfilter ^^

    • That’s from an old poll

      • Richuardo is correct. Don’t worry, Megamacy, I’m replacing it with a new one.

  2. friedle has done great voice work as terry mcginnis (batman beyond) and modern day lion-o, he was also a big source of comedy on boy meets world too.

  3. Feeny and Eric are in a close race!!!

  4. i thought you could only choose one in that poll, who i would like to see most reappear. I can’t go back and fix it :(

    anyway, i expect most of the original cast to at least make cameos in the first season. It has to stand on its own and having all the character continue to reappear would cheat this show of finding its own way. It would be great to end season one with a TV movie that would serve as a reunion special and combine both casts.

    This is gonna be the most watched Disney channel premier since i dont know when

    • Who would you like to see come back?

  5. Just the original cast. The people that came after stunk. Either Morgan is fine. I like the second Morgan better but I hope the first Morgan learned to act

  6. Can’t wait for the show to start.?!

  7. Shawn has to be on the show, His and Cory’s characters were to close for them to not still be friends in this show. I don’t want to see all the original characters to come back but i would love to see one or two original characters have a continuous part in the series and not just be a cameo. But i would like to see everyone have at least a cameo in one episode

  8. It seems to me that the more important a character was to either the story/character development the more people want them to come back.

  9. Grace Baine http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1140761 girl meets world as a mom to the original cast are Gary Marsh, Cory Marsh and Adam Bonnett adding her into the show

  10. Can’t wait for the spin off. Still watch reruns on ABC spark. It was such a great wholesome show to watch growing up.

  11. I love this ! I watch the re-runs !! Please

  12. I want Shawn and Eric back

  13. me to i miss shown hunter

  15. im fine

  16. poopoo that funny have you seen the show??????!! ;)


      sorry for people that read that and they did bring minckis back hahaha

  17. So basically about 5% truthfulness in this article and 95% lie. Shawn Hunter nowhere to be seen, only the obvious Cory & Topanga in a regular role, and so far, only Feeny, Harley Keiner, & Minkus as cameos; of which only Feeny was really an original main character.
