Guess who’s coming back from the “other side of the school”?
EW has confirmed that Boy Meets World character Stuart Minkus – played by Lee Norris – will return for an episode of Girl Meets World. E! first reported the reunion and has a photo of him in character visiting Cory Matthews’s (Ben Savage) new classroom.
“I’ve had a great time being back on set with some of my old friends,” Norris said in a statement exclusively to E! News. “It still amazes me how many people love and remember Minkus, and I’m excited for the fans to catch up with him after all these years.”
As fans likely remember, Minkus was a nerdy classmate of Cory, Shawn, and Topanga’s who appeared in the early days of Boy Meets World. He disappeared for a few years before finally showing up again in the high school graduation episode, explaining that during his long absence he was merely hanging out on “the other side of the school.”
Girl Meets World, which has already been ordered for 21 episodes, is expected to debut on the Disney Channel sometime in 2014.
