Cory and Topanga are officially back! Disney Channel has ordered the Boy Meets World sequel Girl Meets World to series, TVGuide.com has learned. The comedy will start production this summer and will premiere sometime next year. An episode order has not yet been announced. TV shows we want to reunite Hotly anticipated since the pilot was announced in November, the series will follow Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard), the daughter of Boy Meets World super-couple Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel), and her BFF Maya (Sabrina Carpenter), as they embark on 7th grade in New York City — where Cory and Topanga moved in the Boy series finale. Topanga now owns a popular afterschool hangout (think Chubbie's) that specializes in pudding and Cory has followed Mr. Feeny into teaching. His history class students? Riley and Maya, of course. "Boy Meets World and its story of adolescent self-discovery resonated with an entire generation of tweens," Adam Bonnett, Disney's EVP of original programming, said in a statement. "In the same way audiences fell in love with Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence, we look forward to introducing our viewers to their daughter Riley Matthews in Girl Meets World and building a memorable connection with a whole new generation of fans." Add new fall shows to your Watchlist now! Girl reunites original stars Savage and Fishel with Boy Meets World mastermind Michael Jacobs, who co-created the new series with April Kelly and will serve as executive producer. Teo Halm will play Cory and Topanga's son Elliot and William Daniels will reprise his role as the beloved Mr. Feeny in the pilot. "I am grateful to everyone at Disney Channel for the opportunity to reach my favorite audience, which has always been kids," Jacobs said. "Girl Meets World is a new show for a new generation that will be rooted in the same kind of honest, comedic storytelling about coming of age and the importance of family and friendship that made Boy Meets World so popular." Ben Savage promises Girl Meets World won't ruin the legacy of Boy Meets World Savage told TVGuide.com last week that Girl will have its own unique voice and assured any apprehensive fans that their memories of the original series won't be tarnished. "We weren't going to mess with it unless it was something we were really comfortable with," he said. "It's something people are very concerned about, but we worked very diligently and were very careful to make sure it's not something that ruins the legacy of Boy Meets World." Will you watch Girl Meets World? Are you excited for Riley's misadventures? Will Cory make a good teacher? (Obviously, he learned from the best.)
