The Matthews’ fractured family tree near completion next season when one of the last remaining holdouts pays Girl Meets World a long-overdue visit.
The writers for the Disney Channel series on Wednesday confirmed that Will Friedle will finally reprise the role of Cory’s older brother Eric — also known as Plays With Squirrels — in the show’s upcoming second season. (Naturally, the episode is titled “Girl Meets Mr. Squirrels.”)
And Eric’s not the only familiar face returning in 2015. The writers also revealed that the gang will journey to Mr. Feeny’s house “to retrieve something from the past,” and according to this photo tweeted by Ben Savage, they’re bringing Shawn along for the ride:
Per the writers, “Shawn, Eric and Mr. Feeny will be an important part of season 2. Lives will change. People will grow. People won’t.”
And here’s one more tease for you to chew on: “Another member of the original cast will also join us this year. There will be an announcement about it. That is all.”
Any guesses as to which former cast member will return? (My money’s on Angela, Rachel or Jack… or Morgan.) Drop a comment with your guess below.
