Boy Meets World's William Daniels to Return as Mr. Feeny in Girl Meets World Pilot
The Girl Meets World pilot just keeps getting better. William Daniels, a.k.a. Boy Meets World's Mr. Feeny, is set to reprise his role as Cory and Topanga's beloved former teacher on the upcoming Disney Channel spinoff, TV Line reports.
It's not clear yet what Daniels will be doing in the pilot, but he's already making himself at home on set. Earlier this week, he was photographed in a classroom setting with Maitland Ward, who played Rachel in seasons six and seven of the original 1990s series.
Rider Strong and Will Friedle -- who played Cory's best friend Shawn Hunter and older brother Eric Matthews, respectively -- were also snapped on set, but a source tells TV Line that they were just visiting and will not appear in the pilot. Which is not to say they couldn't return if the show gets picked up.
Strong, in particular, has said he'd be open to the idea of a guest spot on the spinoff. But he also thinks the new series should stand on its own.
"Boy Meets World was a defining aspect of my life, and I cherish those seven years. It was never just a job -- on a personal level, many of my best memories and friendships were formed because of it," he wrote in an open letter after the pilot was announced. "So I am extremely happy for Ben [Savage] and Danielle [Fishel] to be able to continue the story."
"But Girl Meets World will be, and I think it should be, it's own show. It will be about Cory and Topanga, their daughter, and a new set of characters," he continued. "It's the next generation. And I, for one, can't wait to see it evolve."
