Disney Channel has released a promo and two clips for tonight's Girl Meets World episode, which features the moment many Boy Meets World have been waiting for, the reunion of Cory (Ben Savage) and his best friend Shawn (Rider Strong). The episode also features Boy Meets World alums Mr. and Mrs. Matthews, played by William Russ and Betsy Randle as they all gather for the holidays. One of the clips also introduces Cory's younger brother Joshua Matthews (Uriah Shelton), who catches the eye of Maya (Sabrina Carpenter), the best friend of Cory's daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard).
The Twitter feed for the show's writers room also revealed that original Boy Meets World star Will Friedle will reprise his role in an upcoming Girl Meets World later this season. The Disney Channel has already renewed the series for Season 2 in August. The writers revealed earlier this week that Shawn, Eric and Mr. Feeny (William Daniels), who appeared in the pilot episode, will have pivotal roles in the next season.
"Shawn, Eric and Mr. Feeny will be an important part of Season 2. Lives will change. People will grow. People won't... We just completed two shows with William Daniels. The cast went to Mr. Feeny's house to retrieve something from the past."
Check out the promo and two clips from the Girl Meets World holiday special, airing tonight at 8 PM ET on The Disney Channel. You can also read on for more details from the Girl Meets World writers room Twitter page, where they discuss a table read for a recent episode entitled Girl Meets Squirrels.
