It finally happened, the “Boy Meets World” cast is together again, and all it took was an invitation. Many of the actors from ABC’s iconic ’90s TV series gathered at the ATX Television Festival in Austin.

Among the chatter was about the epic romance between Cory and Topanga, Cory and Shawn’s ultimate bromance and the “Girl Meets World” spinoff during a panel on Friday morning.

“Boy Meets World” cast members Ben Savage (Cory Matthews), Rider Strong (Shawn Hunter), Matthew Lawrence (Jack Hunter), Maitland Ward (Rachel McGuire), Betsy Randle (Amy Matthews), Lily Nicksay (young Morgan Matthews), Trina McGee (Angela Moore) and creator Michael Jacobs were all on hand to dish on what went into the beloved ABC series, which ran for seven seasons.

“We never talked down to you and you knew that right away,” Jacobs said to the panel audience, full of “Boy Meets World” fans. “What separated ‘Boy’ was that we operated thematically. We talked about what’s next for you. We talked about friendship and how important it was … The three of those characters [Cory, Topanga and Shawn] were so compelling, and we spun out from there.”

Danielle Fishel (Topanga Lawrence), Will Friedle (Eric Matthews), William Daniels (Mr. Feeny), Lindsay Ridgeway (older Morgan Matthews), Lee Norris (Stuart Minkus), Alan Matthews (William Russ), Anthony Tyler Quinn (Mr. Turner) were noticeably absent, but Fishel taped a message to fans.

“It’s a show that means so very much to me,” the actress said. “I give you permission to ask as many embarrassing questions as you want.”

Fans relished in the discussion and a screening of the series finale of “Boy Meets World” with the cast.
