Yep, it’s REALLY happening!
Girl Meets World is officially headed to the Disney Channel!! Set to begin filming this summer and air next year, the show will see the return of Boy, Ben Savage, and his Topanga, Danielle Fishel, alongside their thirteen-year-old daughter, Riley, played by Rowan Blanchard.
Following the announcement earlier Monday morning, the show’s creator, Michael Jacobs, said:
"I am grateful to everyone at Disney Channel for the opportunity to reach my favorite audience, which has always been kids. Girl Meets World is a new show for a new generation that will be rooted in the same kind of honest, comedic storytelling about coming of age and the importance of family and friendship that made Boy Meets World so popular."
According to the Disney Channel, Cory is now a history teacher at his daughter’s school, while his wife, Topanga, is the owner of a popular school hangout known for its pudding. HA!
Though, for original Boy Meets World fans, the real question is whether they’ll get to see Rider Strong return as Cory’s best pal, Shawn! Having been present at ATX TV Festival with the rest of the show’s panel, could Rider’s reunion be a possibility?! Let’s hope so!
Now, someone puh-lease bring back Mr. Feeny!
