Rider recently stopped by the set of the new series and some of the new, younger stars took to Twitter to share their excitement. Click inside to learn more!

Fans of the 90s sitcom Boy Meets World were excited to learn of the Disney Channel’s revamp of the series called Girl Meets World, which stars Rowan Blanchard as Cory and Topanga’s daughter, Riley Matthews.
Even more exciting, some of the original cast members of the beloved TGIF staple visited the set on the first day of filming, including Rider Strong, William Daniels, Will Friedle and Maitland Ward Baxter.
Sabrina Carpenter, who plays Maya, Tweeted, “Shawn and now Maya :) What an honor to meet you Mr. @RiderStrong,” on Thursday.
Blanchard also took to Twitter to share her excitement. “Rider Strong and Will Friedle visited us! OH MY GOSH,” she wrote.
In the reboot, Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel play 13-year-old Riley’s happily married parents.
