Boy Meets World fans have waited nearly 20 years to find out whatever happened to Mr. Turner. The beloved high-school English teacher/Shawn’s mentor/every middle-school girl’s crush last appeared on the show in season four’s “Cult Fiction,” where he got into a serious motorcycle accident. His name was mentioned in passing by Stuart Minkus in the graduation episode (in a pretty meta joke about how both he and Mr. Turner disappeared from the show), but we never quite knew what happened to him … until now. Mr. Turner made his long-awaited return to to the BMW universe, in a cameo on the show’s spinoff, Girl Meets World. Good news: He didn’t die! In fact, he married his nurse from the hospital, became a school superintendent in Manhattan, and eventually gave Cory Matthews his teaching job. Cory’s daughter Riley even calls him Uncle John. Awwwwww!
