Girl Meets World Boss on Farkle's Mystery Mom: 'You'll Love the Return of This Character' in Season 2

Girl Meets World Minkus Farkle

It’s a question as old as time itself — or at least as old as Girl Meets World‘s June 2014 premiere: Which original Boy Meets World character mated with Minkus in order to spawn Farkle?

The answer is coming later this season, and according to creator Michael Jacobs, the mysterious Mama Farkle is someone fans of the original BMW series should be very familiar with.

“You have seen her a number of times [on BMW],” Jacobs told TVLine on Thursday at the ATX Television Festival. “She’s the last person you would believe is married to Minkus. She will be radically different and evolved, and I believe you will love the reappearance of this character.”

When pushed to elaborate on the actress in question, Jacobs said, “She was so happy and proud. She did a couple of episodes for us [on Boy Meets World]. She asked, ‘Was I indelible to you that way?’ And I said, ‘Absolutely.’ She is to [the viewers], too; you’ve just forgotten.”

In the meantime, fans can look forward to the Girl Meets World debut of Shawn’s half-brother Jack (Matthew Lawrence), and star Rowan Blanchard can’t wait for fans to see his long-awaited reunion with Cory’s brother Eric — as well as get some “closure” about Jack’s girlfriend Rachel.

“Jack’s storyline is mainly with Eric, which is cool, because they were best buddies on Boy Meets World,” Blanchard teased. “The whole Rachel situation definitely comes up, and you’ll get some closure on that. … We want to have her back at some point, but she doesn’t appear this season.”

  5. batman says:

    I think it could be Wendy it was in the class with them when minkus was a main character. And it would be awesome

  6. A0826 says:

    Did they rule out Rachel being Farkles mom?

  7. Brandy says:


    • Chris says:

      Supposed to be this season. They have 26 episodes ordered. Think they are filming um maybe 19-20 right now.p

  8. Amy says:

    Maybe it is Trini, Topanga’s “best friend,” I don’t know if they could get Brittany Murphy, but I could see her and Minkus… :-)

  9. Stacy says:

    What about Harley’s little sister?

  10. Matt says:

    Kelly Packard

  11. EchoX860 says:

    The girl who Cory and Shawn hid because of her abusive Dad

  12. Sade Ford says:

    I hope its Wendy. Corey and her had a very sweet relationship.

  13. flutiefan says:

    I don’t remember the character’s name but Marla Sokoloff was on a few episodes…

  14. HAP says:

    Never watched this show. But I’m prompted to fondly remember the classic skits on Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In that featured the Farkle Family.

  15. Joey Padron says:

    glad Minkus is coming back. can’t wait to find out who Farkle’s mom is. happy Jack is gonna be on show with Eric. glad we’ll hear how Rachel is doing.

  16. Rose says:

    The NURSE! “Was horribly shaken when Feeny asked the class a big question that had no true answer. When told he was wrong, Minkus stood up and went to the nurse. “

  17. fred says:

    T.K. Harleys sister

    • Mike says:

      You don’t think that with all the interaction with Harley already, he wouldn’t know his own nephew??? Considering Harley and TK were so close???

  18. Anthony says:

    It’s ether Lauren or Topanga’s one friend from the earlier seasons who’s name I can’t remember.

  19. Jared says:

    as well as get some “closure” about Jack’s girlfriend Rachel. RACHEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Dj says:

    I hope it’s not Lauren. It would just seem to weird.

  21. Julie Letford says:

    I think it’ s Lauren.

  22. Cas says:

    Who is Wendy? Apparently I don’t remember the earlier episodes…

  23. I surprised they want to have the actress who plays Rachel on the show. I mean it is Disney and the actress who plays Rachel puts sexy pictures of herself online it seems like every week. I mean she not to far from doing porn I hear.

  24. Jess says:

    WAIT. Minkus isn’t gay?

  25. Tara says:

    What about Morgan?? It could be her!

    • DiDi says:

      That would mean Farkle had a crush on his cousin.

    • ariel says:

      no, because that would make Farkle 1st cousins with Riley Matthews
      ending his love to being with her. So that is the one person that it can not
      be. Plus it is might not be laura the ski girl because would Topanga let
      her kid be friends with the woman that moved in on her man. I believe it
      will be someone from way out of mainstream that you make her standout.

  26. I reckon it will be TK (Theresa Kiner) If anyone had the room to change, it would be TK and it would make sense considering Cory got Harvey the Janitor job.

  27. Bizzle says:

    Topanga’s sister

  28. Addy Johnson says:

    I don’t know for sure who his mom is, but I can tell you who I would be so happy with: Theresa Keiner. Now, I know that she doesn’t fit into the clues that have been given, but she’s my dream for Farkle’s mom! T.K. and Minkus are polar opposites. And, as they say, opposites attract. I would love to see T.K. back!

  29. Mike Hudy says:

    It’s TK, Harley’s sister.

  30. Stephanie says:

    I think it might be Danielle Harris. She played Harley Keiners baby sister Theresa.

  31. Stephanie says:

    Danielle Harris aka Theresa keiner.

  32. radmcawesome says:

    Maybe Leisha Haley’s character who dated Eric and ended up writing Alanis Morrisette type anthems about him? I don’t remember if she was on multiple episodes though.

  33. jessica says:

    I think Farkles mom is paige played by Marla Sokoloff

  34. Well on imdb it says that Rachel(Trina McGee) makes her return in episode 8 of season 2 which is the episode after next so I think it might actually be her. Although it says that Angela is divorced. This is the synopsis- Shawn has to choose between divorced Angela or divorced Katy (Maya’s mom).

  35. joe guddemi says:

    I am with everyone who said Wendy

  36. Natasha says:

    I think it’s Rachel.

  37. Heather says:

    Teresa kiner “T.K” would be my guess. They said it would be the last person you would think to marry Minkus.

  38. Alan says:

    What if its Angela

  39. animegirl31 says:

    What about Cory’s first girlfriend? Remember the episode that Shawn couldn’t decide between two girls so Cory took one of them out to sort of keep her on hold for Shawn but Cory ended up liking her for real? That’s about the only person I can come up with :P

  40. Leonard Spinelli says:

    I think it’s Kristanna Loken’s character, Jennifer. She was the bossy ex-girlfriend of shawn who hated Cory. We wouldn’t expect her too marry Minkus. Maybe she demanded he marry her and father her child! When they reintroduce the character, she would still intimidate Cory and /or Shawn until they realized she has changed.

  41. Boris says:

    Its pretty clear from the comments it won’t be a character that was a regular or semi-regular character so that excludes Rachel, Morgan and Angela. By my count there are 9 people that it could be. Girl Meets World is better about keeping continuity than Boy Meets World which made a running joke out of how disregarded it was on that show. And there are continuity issues with both Lauren and Theresa Keiner. With Theresa there was the season 1 episode where Farkle was being bullied and hung out in the janitor’s room and he didn’t refer to him as uncle Harley or anything like that. But this one isn’t that big of a deal.The Lauren one I think is a little worse. When they opened the time capsule the way Corey reacted to hearing the name Lauren suggests he hasn’t seen or heard from her in years and if she was Farkle’s mom clearly they would’ve interacted at some point or at the very least he’d known that she was his mom.

    So I’d say the 9 are the aforementioned 2, the 3 crazy girls that kidnapped Shawn, Wendy, Missy Robinson, Loni the mountain woman and the girl that had a hit song that insulted Eric, I don’t think it’ll be Lauren, if this was a show on a broadcast network she’d probably be the person but its a little too weird and awkward for a show like this. I’d also exclude the girl who wrote the hit song that insulted Eric because there’d be a little too much happening in that episode. I’d also exclude Missy Robinson and the crazy girl that kidnapped Shawn, the one that Lindsey McKeon played. I think both of them were pretty unmemorable. That leaves Loni, Theresa Keiner, Dana Pruitt, the tall crazy girl that kidnapped Shawn and Wendy. Loni sounds like an idea that is suggested in the writer’s room and everyone thinks its a great idea but then they break for lunch and everyone gives it some thought and they nix it as it sounds interesting on the surface but she’s a little too much of a one-note character. Wendy and Dana Pruitt are a little more memorable but I think both are a little too vanilla. I imagine that whomever is the person is someone that at least initially spooks Corey and/or Shawn a little bit. I’d say Theresa Keiner and the tall girl that kidnapped Shawn are the two most likely and I’d the tall girl is my pick.

    Man, that was way longer than I thought it would be.

  43. Joey says:

    I think it’s tracy that Eric dated a couple of times in season 1. The same actress also played Candy as well in season 2. But I think she will take the tracy roll as farkles mom. I really think it is tracy although I really want it to be feeny’s niece that would be a funny plot line.

    • Joey says:

      And whoever said Wendy is better than topanga you’re an idiot topanga is perfect and unbelievably hot.

    • HalJordan77 says:

      “I think it’s tracy that Eric dated a couple of times in season 1. The same actress also played Candy as well in season 2. But I think she will take the tracy roll as farkles mom.”

      That would be Kelly Packard, and I agree. Her or Larisa Oleynik are my guesses.

  44. Liz Haury says:

    I personally think it is Jennifer, the one who dated Shawn and try to get in between Shawn and Cory. She is also the one who kidnapped Shawn on Valentine’s Day so he wouldn’t “hurt” Angela.

  45. Williwasnt says:

    I hope it’s Desiree. I’d like to see millionaire Minkus wrapped around the southern belle’s finger. Plus I want to hear him say “Yes… Puddin'”

    • Williwasnt says:

      Speaking of which, can we get a Jason cameo? At least in the Eric & Jack one, with Jason sadly standing in the background as the two frolic together?

  46. Emanuel says:

    I think it could be Morgan

  47. Smile says:

    I was think be windy b/c she cooked but I am really going for candy gir been in lot and she one movie blonds

  48. Andy Shick says:

    It’s either Lauren or Rachel. Or Morgan, but that wouldn’t make much sense.
