If the Girl Meets World universe has so far felt incomplete to you, relief may be on the horizon: Mr. Feeny and Eric Matthews are coming to the show in May.
William Daniels (George Feeny), who first appeared in the pilot as a ghost-like figure, will show up on May 11 in the season two premiere “Girl Meets Gravity.” The episode will see Riley and Maya with a new teacher whose identity has yet to be revealed. Calling Mr. Feeny!
Daniels will return on May 14 for “Girl Meets Pluto,” which will also feature Shawn (played by Rider Strong). In the nostalgia-tinged episode, Cory, Topanga, and Shawn take Riley and Maya to Philadelphia to dig up a time capsule they buried 15 years ago.
Eric (Will Friedle) will make his much-anticipated GMW debut May 15 in the aptly titled, “Girl Meets Mr. Squirrels.” Playing mediator between Riley and Maya when they get into a massive fight, the role isn’t new for him: In Boy Meets World, he tried to prevent a falling out with his friends after a prank goes too far. Then, in an imagined future, he abandoned society and took the name of Plays With Squirrels. Here’s a refresher:
Friedle and Daniels join fellow BMW alums Trina McGee (Shawn’s ex-girlfriend Angela), Blake Clark (Chet Hunter), and Anthony Tyler Quinn (Mr. Turner), who are also making the jump to the spinoff series. The show’s second season also comes with brand new episode each night for the entire first week.
