Ever since "Girl Meets World" was announced last year, fans of the original series "Boy Meets World" have been wondering if cast members from the original series would be returning and at least a few of them are. On Tuesday, March 18 Wetpaint Entertainment revealed that actor Rider Strong will reprise the role of Shawn Hunter on an upcoming episode, and he will be joined by other familiar faces.

Strong portrayed the character of Shawn Hunter, the best friends to Cory Matthews. When the series was announced, Strong revealed that he was not in discussions with the series to make an appearance but that has changed. In an upcoming holiday episode of the new show, Strong will return as Shawn along with Alan (William Russ) and Amy (Betsey Randle) Matthews. Cory's parents will be in town visiting Cory, Topanga, and Riley in New York City.

Also returning to the series is actor Lee Norris, who played love to hate student genius Stuart Minkus on the original show. Norris is also known for his role on the CW drama "Once Tree Hill" as Mouth. Danielle Fishel, who played Topanga Lawrence, shared a behind the scenes photo of Strong and everyone filming on her official Instagram account.

The twenty-one episode season will air in late 2014 on Disney Channel. The episode will also feature Maya Hart (Sabrina Carpenter), Riley's best friend who have a relationship much like the friendship Cory and Shawn had on the first series. Another popular character set to return is Mr. Feeny (William Daniels), who will visit Cory and Riley's middle school science class.
