Can 'Boy Meets World' Spin-Off Go Ahead Without Rider Strong!?

Boy Meets World fans were dancing in the street this week with news that the classic 90's television series was returning in the form of a spin-off titled Girl Meets World' What's more, original stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel have officially signed on for the project!

The Disney Channel seem pretty serious about the new show, which would see Ben and Danielle once again playing Cory and Topanga, however, this time things are a little different. The couple are parents to 13-year-old daughter Riley, the new protagonist of the show. Fischel confirmed her involvement in a lengthy blog post on her Tumblr page, writing, "First of all, let me say that you, the fans of Boy Meets World, have been awesome. That word is often used incorrectly by people, including myself, on a daily basis but you have truly been awe inspiring. You, yes, even YOU, are the reason that Girl Meets World WILL BE MADE. J" Though Disney appear to want to keep the authenticity of the original series, they are yet to offer Rider Strong - who played Cory's friend Shawn - a role in the pilot. He revealed on his website, "At this point, I have no official involvement," though graciously added, "I am extremely happy for Ben and Danielle to be able to continue the story.Girl Meets World will be, and I think it should be, it's [sic] own show. It will be about Cory and Topanga, their daughter, and a new set of characters. It's the next generation. And I, for one, can't wait to see it evolve." 

What do you think, should Shawn return for the new series?
