‘Girl Meets World’ is Officially Happening
The internet dreamt hard enough and now the Disney Channel has officially given its Boy Meets World follow-up, Girl Meets World, a full series order.
The show’s first season will be filmed this summer and is expected to air in 2014. We don’t really have any new details about the show just yet, but we do know that it will be set in New York City. Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage will reprise their roles as Topanga and Cory Matthews, this time as parents to the show’s titular girl, Riley Matthews played by Rowan Blanchard. Riley’s best friend Maya will be played by Sabrina Carpenter. Remember those names, one of them is probably the next Miley Cyrus.
Riley and Maya are seventh graders who are horrified to learn that Cory Matthews is their new history teacher. But don’t worry kids! Cory Matthews knows all about middle school hijinks! Even worse, the popular after-school hangout spot is owned by none other than Topanga Matthews, Riley’s mom. In a press release, Disney mentions that said hangout specializes in pudding, which sure, but it doesn’t mention what happened to Topanga’s law school dreams.
As for the supporting cast, it hasn’t been announced yet, but Rider Strong, who played Cory’s best friend Shawn, and Will Friedle, Cory’s brother Eric, visited the set while the cast was filming the pilot and Strong recently took part in a reunion at the Austin Television Festival, fueling rumors that he’ll be making appearances on the show.
This, however, is not a time for questions, it’s a time for celebration. The Matthews family is back! Let’s all head down to the Pudding Palace, I’m buying.
