It’s Official! Danielle Fishel & Ben Savage Join Girl Meets World!!
Mr. Feeny would be so proud!
Our latest dreamiest of TV dreams has come true — Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel have signed the dotted line to reprise their Boy Meets World roles of Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence for the sequel series!!!
Announcing the news with pride, a Disney Channel rep said:
“We can confirm that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel will reprise their hugely popular roles of Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence, this time as a happily married couple and parents to 13-year-old Riley, from whose point of view the story is told.”
As for the progress of the Girl Meets World series, the rep also stated:
“The pilot is still in the very early stages of development with creator and executive producer Michael Jacobs, Emmy Award-winning creator/producer behind Boy Meets World, My Two Dads, and Charles In Charge, among others. A nationwide casting search is underway for the starring role of Riley Matthews.”
Cuties unite!! LOL!!
And naturally, Danielle made sure to let everyone know her feelings via Tumblr:
“First of all, let me say that you, the fans of Boy Meets World, have been awesome. That word is often used incorrectly by people, including myself, on a daily basis but you have truly been awe inspiring. You, yes, even YOU, are the reason that Girl Meets World WILL BE MADE.”
HELL YEAH WE ARE!!
We love the enthusiasm, Dani! Keep it coming on the show!!
And though nobody knows if any of the other original cast members will return, we’re kinda hoping that hunky brother of Cory’s will.
C’mon… he was half the reason we all watched. And you all know it!! No need to deny your true feelings!!!
