Another TGIF alum has joined the cast of the Disney Channel pilot “Girl Meets World,” the sequel series to “Boy Meets World.” Jackee Harry, who starred on “Sister, Sister,” has signed on to play an unknown role in the pilot, which hopes to go to series in the fall, Access Hollywood has confirmed.
Previously announced for the pilot are stars from the original series, Ben Savage(Cory), Danielle Fishel (Topanga), and William Daniels (Mr. Feeny). “Sister, Sister” didn’t spend long in the Friday night lineup, only running in the programming block during its first season, but “Boy Meets World” stuck around for its entire seven-year run.
“Girl Meets World” follows Riley (Rowan Blanchard), the daughter of Cory and Topanga, as she goes through school, much like the original show did with her father. Joining Blanchard are Teo Halm, who plays her older brother Elliot, and Sabrina Carpenter as her best friend Maya.
