Nineties nostalgia is in high gear now that a Boy Meets World spin-off has been announced. Fans who fell in love with Cory and Topanga on the original show will now get to see how their lives turned out! Of course, all of this will be seen through their daughter’s eyes on a new show aptly named Girl Meets World.
Ben Savage who played the part of Cory Matthews on the show took to Twitter to confirm his new role saying, “I’m going to be a father! Well, on TV at least. The ‘Boy Meets World’ sequel is officially happening!”
Danielle Fishel also confirmed the news that she will be returning to reprise her role as Topanga Lawrence-Matthews by taking to Tumblr. Not only did she confirm her new role, but she posted her thoughts on the new project. She also hinted that fans may see some more familiar faces (could Mr. Feeny or Shawn Hunter be making a come back!?), but she didn’t go into detail.
On her post, she emphasized that Boy Meets Girl is not Boy Meets World, but a whole new show saying, “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 there will be episode 1, of season 1, 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. Stick with us. Give us a chance.”
Fans are more than willing to give this new show a chance, mainly because it will be a way to share a part of their past with their families. There will likely be many parents who will sit down with their children and be able to enjoy the show for the old characters, while their kids enjoy the new. Not too many details regarding the story line of the show have been released, but what is known is that it will revolve around Cory and Topanga’s daughter, Riley. She will have an edgy best friend and the two will likely learn some life lessons. Cory Matthews is the new History teacher, perhaps having been inspired by Mr. Feeny (who fans are hoping will at least make a guest appearance!)
It is unclear when filming will get underway or when the first episode will air, but this is certainly exciting news!
