Be still my tv teen angst heart. The ATX Television Festival just announced the first round of guests for 2013, and it includes cast reunions for My So-Called Life, Party of Five, and Boy Meets World. Yes, you can squee right now.
It looks like Austin's newest and most broadcast-centric festival has wisely built on this year's success and guest list, with big name returnees likes Buffy the Vampire Slayer writer Jane Espenson and Cougartown creator Bill Lawrence (whose Q&A was one of the inaugural year's high marks). It seems like Scott Wolf aka Bailey from Party of Five had such a good time last year that there's a whole cast reunion.
And let's just face facts. Even though it's unclear who exactly will be coming, with the announcement of spin-off/sequel Girl Meets World, we're really hoping Ben Savage makes it for the Boy Meets World gathering.
