girl meets world, boy meets world, reunion, first look, season 3"Girl Meets World," the Disney Channel spinoff/sequel series to ABC's TGIF staple "Boy Meets World," hasn't been shy about acknowledging the original series throughout its short run so far, regularly rotating in cast members like Ryder Strong (who played Cory's BFF Shawn Hunter) and Will Friedle (Cory's ditzy older brother Eric). An entire season one episode was centered around Riley Matthews meeting inspirational teacher Mr. Feeny (William Daniels), and both Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) are series regulars.

But "Girl" is about to take its reverence of "Boy" one step further in its season three finale, staging a massive reunion featuring almost every key player from the original cast, and now, we have our first behind-the-scenes look at that event. Disney Channel released a photo featuring a whopping 17 members of both casts, bringing together the entire extended Matthews clan and several friends and mentors, too.

The lineup of returning original stars includes Savage, Fishel, Strong, Friedle, and Daniels; Betsy Randall and William Russ, who played Cory's parents, Amy and Alan; both actresses who played Cory's younger sister Morgan, Lily Nicksay (seasons one and two) and Lindsay Ridgeway (seasons three through seven); Lee Norris, who played classmate Minkus (and who's son, Farkle, is one of Riley and Maya's pals on the program); Anthony Quinn, who played motorcycle-riding teacher Mr. Turner (and who's reprised that role as the superintendent of the school Riley and Maya attend); and Danny McNulty, who played school bully Harley (who now works as a custodian at Riley and Maya's school).

According to the "Girl Meets World" writers' Twitter account, all these familiar faces will reunite to help Maya make a big decision. Could it have something to do with the simmering love triangle between Riley, Maya, and Lucas?

We'll find out when the "Girl Meets World" season three finale airs on August 26.
