"It's being back but it's not being back," Friedle spills in our first look featurette above. "It’s being back, but on a different set -- it's great!"
"It's a heck of a lot of fun to come back," the actor adds, "Being with Ben and Danielle, we spent every day together for seven years so that's like going back with your family."
Ben Savage is particularly thrilled to welcome his "long lost" brother to the hit Disney Channel continuation. "When we get back together, it's like no time has passed at all," he says.
Not only is Uncle Eric making his GMW debut, but Friedle is also bringing back his fan-favorite alter-ego Plays With Squirrels."He's popped right back into his character and he's just as funny as he was back in the 90's." Danielle Fishel explains.
