Class is now in session!
You guys, we are trying SO hard to avoid a hot for teacher joke right now, but come on, we're talking about Mr. Turner here, a.k.a. the ultimate teacher crush of every Boy Meets World fan growing up. And now, thanks to Girl Meets World, we once again get to sit in Mr. Turner's class.
Anthony Tyler Quinn is set to reprise his fan-favorite role of Jonathan Turner in the second season of Disney Channel's Girl Meets World, and E! News has your exclusive first look at Quinn back in action.
Quinn is set to make his GMW debut in an episode titled, "Girl Meets the New Teacher," which will introduce a new teacher for Riley (Rowan Blanchard), Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga's (Danielle Fishel) daughter, and her sidekick Maya (Sabrina Carpenter).
"Great to be together again. Wonderful show on the floor this week," the Girl Meets World writers tweeted during filming of Quinn's episode. "New teacher, old teacher, voice of Earl Sinclair. GMW meets Dinosaurs."
Quinn appeared on Boy Meets World as the show's main teacher, and Shawn's (Rider Strong) mentor/father figure, in seasons two, three and four, and when the spinoff was announced, Quinn revealed he had an idea of how Mr. Turner could appear.
"There's a lot of different of different ways you could go with it," Quinn told The Huffington Post. "He could watch [the characters] from a distance as a teacher might do. Or maybe they've been in touch this whole time and never really talked about it. Obviously, I think my character would have grown in the education field, maybe become an administrator."
After his guest appearance was announced and Twitter nearly broke over the news, Quinn took to his account to express his gratitude to the fans.
"BMW fans are an AMAZING bunch of people," he wrote. "Feelin' the love for sure! #don'tstopbelievin'."
And Quinn isn't the only BMW alum making his GMW debut in season two: Will Friedle is reprising his role as Cory's older brother Eric Matthews, while Trina McGee-Davis will return as Shawn's ex-girlfriend Angela Moore and Blake Clark is set to appear as Shawn's late father Chet. With Quinn now coming back as Shawn's mentor, it's looking like season two may be pretty focused on Cory's former bad boy BFF. So. Many. Feelings.
Girl Meets World airs Fridays at 8:30 p.m. on Disney Channel.
