Girl Meets World, the new Boy Meets World sequel has been released as the upcoming Disney series. It’s been leaked that the two stars, Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel from Boy Meets World will join in the sequel.
The sequel will revolve around the couple Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence’s 13-year old daughter, Riley. Riley’s role hasn’t been cast yet.
A Disney Channel rep told E! News that this time around, the couple will appear as “a happily married couple and parents to 13-year-old Riley, from whose point of view the story is told.”
The pilot for the Girl Meets World series is still in early stages of development and was created/will be executive produced by “Boy Meets World” creator Michael Jacobs. It’s being rumored that Ben Savage’s Cory Matthews will play his daughter Riley’s 7th grade history teacher.
Danielle Fishel wrote on her blog about the years making Boy Meets World and what this upcoming sequel means to her. She wrote, “The seven wonderful years we spent making ‘BMW’ … were among the most warm, hilarious, insightful, educational years of my life and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. Another thing I wouldn’t trade for anything is the integrity and the heart with which ‘BMW’ was made. I promise with the entirety of my heart that we will make ‘GMW’ with the same honesty, innocence, and intelligence that you learned to expect from ‘BMW.’”
“It isn’t ‘BMW’ brought back to life,” Fishel added. “It will have familiar faces, familiar themes and familiar messages. It will also have new faces, new themes and new messages. ‘BMW’ never spoke down to the audience and we are going to do our best to never do that with ‘GMW.’ But please keep in mind that this will be episode one, of season one, of a brand new show. We started at the same place with ‘BMW’ but we evolved and we evolved quickly. For those of you who knew and loved ‘BMW,’ please allow this show to evolve as well.”
“In the meantime, a sincere thank you to every one of you for all of your tweets (I read them all, every day. It killed me not to be able to talk about it!), even those of you who asked us not to do it,” Fishel wrote.
Ben Savage took it to Twitter to announce his news in being part of the sequel. “I’m going to be a father! Well, on TV at least. The “Boy Meets World” sequel is officially happening!” Savage tweeted.
It hasn’t been reported if any of the other original cast members will return or who will be playing Riley. Casting nationwide is underway.
Boy Meets World series ran from 1993 to 2000 on ABC.
