Disney Working On "Boy Meets World" Spinoff

Recommended Posts

That scream you heard over the weekend was the collective sound of all 16-to-34-year-olds realizing that their favorite ‘90s dramedy, Boy Meets World, is in talks for a spinoff on the Disney channel.

Michael Jacobs, the original creator, signed a pilot deal, EW has confirmed.

 

Girl Meets World would center around a teen girl, and Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel may return as her parents, as was initially reported by TVLine.

 

Fishel even sent out this cryptic/encouraging tweet over the weekend, “Just want you guys to know that @BenSavage and I have talked and we’ve decided…Thanksgiving is going to be delicious this year!”

Dunno if anyone cares, but being an awesome 90s kid... This is pretty sweet. lol. Dunno how successful it would be... Because culture has change so much in the past 10-20 years, but... I would probably check it out. :ninja:

It'll probably be terrible, but I'll probably try to watch it a few times.

It would probably suck. We love Boy Meets World because it related to us growing up. We grew up with Cory Mathews.

Dude, Boy Meets World was the Bees Knees. Girl Meets World sounds pretty terrible. It seems that that the kid actors they get now a days are just awful compared to what we had.

Teenage boys are relatable and entertaining, a teenage girl is a nightmare and terrible to watch

Haha. Especially if she is like girls today... Whoring around at 12 and what not.

 

But if Cory, Topanga, and the rest of the gang are back... They have my attention! :D

everybody (not just on here, but every commentary I've seen on it) seems to be missing one major point: if this is going to be on the Disney Channel it will not be aimed at the same people who watched the original, who are now in their mid 20s to 30s, it'll be aimed at current pre-teens and Cory and Topanga will probably be minor characters, as parents are in most kids shows, so I'd be very surprised if anyone who loved Boy Meets World growing up doesn't think the new incarnation of it sucks, but that doesn't mean it won't be successful

Casting going on for the daughter right now. Cory is also a history teacher now, just like Mr. Feeny.

The cast of "Boy Meets World." Danielle Fishel, who played Cory's love interest, Topanga, said all involved were interested in a sequel only if they could make it as special as the original.

 

Not even the wise Mr. Feeny could have seen this one coming.

The Disney Channel confirmed rumors that it is developing a “Boy Meets World” sequel about Cory and Topanga’s 13-year-old daughter, Riley: “Girl Meets World.”

 

Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel will reprise their roles as Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence, the central couple of “Boy Meets World.”

 

"I'm going to be a father! Well, on TV at least. The ‘Boy Meets World’ sequel is officially happening," Ben Savage tweeted Monday.

 

Danielle Fishel confirmed her involvement in a blog post on Tumblr.

 

“First of all, let me say that you, the fans of Boy Meets World, have been awesome,” she wrote. “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.”

 

Fishel said that many conversations took place about the new sitcom before everyone agreed to it. The first sentence out of everyone’s mouth when approached with the idea was ““Let’s only do it if we think we can create something as special as we did with BMW.”

 

Boy Meets World, which ran from 1993 to 2000, became a popular staple in TGIF, ABC’s weekly block of family-friendly programming. The show endeared itself to a generation of children who, now in their twenties, are brimming with excitement over the announcement.

 

Fishel said that much of the cast shares the audience’s enthusiasm and nostalgia.

 

“Those years were among the most warm, hilarious, insightful, educational years of my life and I wouldn’t trade them for the world,” she wrote.

World, meet Girl. 11-year-old Rowan Blanchard has officially been cast to play Cory and Topanga's daughter on the Disney Channel's Boy Meets World spinoff, Girl Meets World.

 

"As soon as Rowan walked into the room, I was reminded of why Ben Savage was loved as Cory Matthews," said producer and Boy Meets World creator Michael Jacobs. "Rowan is real and accessible and I am hopeful this girl is about to meet a world that will love growing up with her as well."

The young actress, whose credits include Spy Kids: All the Time in World in 4D and The Back-up Plan, was informed earlier tonight that she had landed the starring role as Riley Matthews in the upcoming family sitcom.

 

The pilot for Girl Meets World is scheduled to begin next month, according to EW.com. If (probably when) it gets a greenlight to series, the show will likely appear in the network's 2013-14 schedule.

I can't say that I'd watch it. I'm still entertained enough from re-runs of Boy Meets World on ABC Family every morning. :shrug:

Daniels is 85 so I have trouble believing he'll have a huge role in the new show, but I am impressed at how many of the actors/actresses they're bringing back in for this
