The Girl Meets World cast is about to grow by one more member for its special Christmas episode.
God bless us, every one! Rider Strong is joining the Disney Channel series for a holiday that fans won’t soon forget. The episode, titled “Girl Meets Home for the Holidays,” will feature the Matthewses celebrating Christmas with family and friends, including Cory’s best bud Shawn Hunter (Strong), Riley’s grandparents and Uncle Joshua. It’s the reunion that every fan has been waiting for since the new series began: Cory and Shawn!
With so many people coming to visit, Topanga will be feeling the pressure as she tries to create the perfect meal to impress her mother-in-law. Meanwhile, Shawn and Maya will find they have a special connection. In addition to Strong, the rest of the guest list for the episode is pretty impressive, including Betsy Randle as Amy Matthews, William Russ as Alan Matthews and Uriah Shelton as Joshua Matthews. That’s one heck of a family reunion — just in time for the holidays!
Since the show’s premiere, Girl Meets World has been going strong in the ratings and has already earned a second season. Fans of the original series, Boy Meets World, are now sitting down to watch it with their own kids. It’s one of those rare shows that blasts through the age barrier and appeals to people of all ages. With so many members of the original cast reprising their roles and with special episodes such as this year’s holiday episode, we’re betting Girl Meets World is going to become as big of a hit at the original.
The Girl Meets World special holiday episode airs on Friday, Dec. 5, at 8/7c on Disney Channel.
