[TV] Rider Strong Says He's Not on Board to Return as Shawn Hunter for Girl Meets World Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 11.28.2012
Still no word on Will Friedle returning as Eric Matthews...
TMZ reports that Rider Strong (Shawn Hunter from the original Boy Meets World TV series) has said that he hasn't signed on yet to reprise his role as Shawn for the new spin-off series Girl Meets World which is being developed by Disney. He also said that could soon change.
Strong released a statement about the new show which is now confirmed to also star Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel who will be returning in their roles of Cory and Topanga Matthews from the original 1990's show. Strong stated, "At this point, I have no official involvement."
Strong also stated: "There might be a chance to see some of the BMW cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years. 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 ... And I, for one, can't wait to see it evolve."
The important question is this though: Will Will Friedle return as Eric Matthews? Eric Matthews was the true star of the original show.
