‘Girl Meets World’: Trina McGee and Blake Clark to Guest Star

'Girl Meets World': Trina McGee and

The nostalgia factor is looming large in Disney Channel’s “Girl Meets World.” The comedy will be hosting two more “Boy Meets World” alums when the show launches its second season, with Trina McGee and Blake Clark set to stop in for a visit, Variety has confirmed.

McGee, who played Angela Moore, the girlfriend of Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong), in the original series, and Clark, who played Shawn’s father Chet Hunter, will both appear in a season-two episode currently titled “Girl Meets Hurricane.”

Rider Strong will also return for the episode.

In “Boy Meets World” Shawn and Angela dated on and off before ultimately going their separate ways, while Shawn’s father died of a heart attack during season six of the series. The character continued to make appearances on “Boy Meets World” through memories or as a subconscious guide, as he will appear on “Girl Meets World.”

Keeping “Girl Meets World” in the family, Matthews patriarch William Russ, who plays Cory’s father Allen Matthews, will direct the outing.

ET Online first reported the news.

    I”m assuming that Chet will come back via ‘ghost’ since he passed away?? I love that Girl Meets World is doing it’s own thing, yet still giving us BMW fans little bursts of excitement along the way. My daughter watches GMW and she always calls Cory “Riley’s Dad” which is exactly what the writers were wanting to happen. GMW is about Riley and it’s great that it’s registering that way!

  2. I like the show, it stands on it’s own without trying to be a carbon copy of Boy Meets World and the nostalgic tie ins are a nice touch.

    Didn’t Shawn’s dad die in Boy Meets World?
