William Daniels will reprise his beloved role as Mr. Feeny in Disney Channel’s upcoming “Girl Meets World,” reports TVLine. The site says that it is not clear what function the character will serve on the “Boy Meets World” spin-off.
The new show is said to find Cory (Ben Savage) as a seventh grade history teacher, echoing qualities of Daniels’ Mr. Feeny on the original show. Married to Topanga (Danielle Fishel), the pair have a 14-year-old son, Elliot (Teo Halm), in addition to Riley (Rowan Blanchard).
Filming has begun for “Girl Meets World.” It is not known if Mr. Feeny would keep playing Mr. Feeny beyond the pilot if the show gets picked up as a series.
The original show aired from 1993 to 2000. Beginning with his life as a sixth grader, the series followed Cory through high school, to college and eventually into marriage with longtime love interest, Topanga.
