“Boy Meets World” fans have always wondered what happened to some of their favorite characters from the show. Luckily, some of those questions will be answered on the upcoming revamp “Girl Meets World.” The new show will follow Cory and Topanga’s daughter, but will also reintroduce some of the characters that fans grew to love. Perhaps one of the most perplexing unanswered questions from the show involved Cory and Shawn’s teacher Mr. Turner. According to an October 21 report, fans may finally find out what happened to Mr. Turner after his motorcycle accident.
Anthony Tyler Quinn played the role of the teacher who ended up in a motorcycle accident at the end of season three. The final time fans saw him, Mr. Turner was in a body cast as Shawn Hunter pleaded with his mentor (with whom he had lived) to survive. In Turner’s final scene, he does not speak, but rather squeezes Shawn Hunter’s hand, perhaps as a sign that everything will be okay. Although he was never seen on the show again (and the accident was not addressed), his name was mentioned in a later season when Minkus mentioned that he, along with Mr. Turner, had been on “the other side of the school.”
Michael Jacobs’ plans to address what happened with Mr. Tuner on an episode of “Girl Meets World” saying, “If I get my way, you will find out what happened to Mr. Turner, and you will find out what happened to everybody. [Quinn] was one of the first people who got in touch with me after “Girl Meets World” was announced. And what it made me realize is not only does the audience, but the people who were on the show have a fondness for [the show]. So I will not answer your question…because I will answer the question on the series.”
This is exciting news for “Boy Meets World Fans” who always felt cheated with the lack of an explanation for Mr. Turner’s fate.
Jacobs’ stressed that fans will have to wait, though, before the answer is revealed. Although many people are excited to get reacquainted with “Boy Meets World,” this show is not exactly “Boy Meets World” There will be old cast members, but a whole new cast will be introduced as well.
