The beloved teacher has joined Disney Channel’s pilot for Girl Meets World, a potential reboot/followup to the ABC series Boy Meets World. William Daniels will reprise the signature role as Mr. Feeny, Deadline confirmed. Boy Meets World stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel were already aboard as grownup versions of their characters Cory and Topanga. The followup observes the world from the perspective of their daughter Riley, played by Rowan Blanchard. Project is from Michael Jacobs, co-creator/exec producer of the original show that ran on ABC from 1993 through 2000. (Photo of Daniels with Maitland Ward from the original series via Instagram)
