It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas on Girl Meets World! The Disney spin-off is getting into the holiday spirit early this year, with a special episode on Friday, Dec. 5, that will reunite some beloved cast members from the original '90s series Boy Meets World, which starred Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel as Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence.
Cory's parents, Amy and Alan Matthews, played by Betsy Randle and William Russ, respectively, are set to visit their son and his family for Christmas dinner on the upcoming "Girl Meets Home for the Holidays" ep — and Us Weekly has an exclusive photo of the reunion!
The Dec. 5 holiday special will also feature the return of Cory's best friend Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong). According to an episode description from Disney, Shawn "sees his likeness in [Cory's daughter's best friend] Maya and forms a bond with her and Riley." (Riley, played by Rowan Blanchard, is Cory and Topanga's eldest child; they also have a son named Auggie.)
Girl Meets World features Savage and Fishel reprising their old roles, but as married parents living in New York City. The show premiered in June and was renewed for a second season this past August.
The Girl Meets World reunion episode is part of the Disney Channel's annual "Fa-la-la-lidays" winter programming, which kicks off on Friday, Nov. 28.
