Rider Strong On Why He Wasn't Cast In 'Boy Meets World' Spinoff

This week we announced that “Boy Meets World” was returning to television with a spinoff about Cory and Topanga’s daughter called “Girl Meets World.”

This news essentially broke the internet for anybody born between the years 1984 and 1991.

While Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel will star in the new series, we all wondered what would happen to Rider Strong aka the guy who played Shawn Hunter aka every teenage girls celebrity crush (who wasn’t already crushing on Jonathan Taylor Thomas, ladies AM I RIGHT?!)

Well sadly, Rider was NOT cast in the new show. Hiss, booo!

He just released an official statement about it, telling all y’all how he felt about the “Boy Meets World” snub.

“At this point, I have no official involvement, [but] there might be a chance to see some of the ‘Boy Meets World’ cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years. But ‘Girl Meets World’ will be, and I think it should be, it’s own show.”

That being said, there are no hard feelings from Mr. Rider Strong, who said, “I for one, can’t wait to see it evolve.”
