Character Bio

Shawn Hunter photo
Cory's best friend. Shawn is more of a trouble maker than Cory, and is also more popular. It is revealed in the second season that Shawn lives in a trailer park. Later in the second season, Shawn’s mother Verna leaves him. His father (Chet) then goes after her. This results in Shawn moving in with Mr. Turner. As a result of being abandoned and passed from home to home, Shawn is the most prone to depression of all the characters of the show. Shawn begins to resent his father until they reunite shortly before Chet’s death. After his death Shawn receives a letter from Verna, stating that she is not his real birth mother, but the mother who raised him. His relationship with his half-brother, Jack Hunter, is often a tense one, as they have very little in common. Early in the series Shawn’s sister Stacy is mentioned, and his other half brother Eddie (from Verna side of the family) is seen, however neither character is ever acknowledged again. In the series finale, Shawn and Cory have a hard time saying goodbye to each other, so he moves with them to New York.
