Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel finally announced that they’ve officially signed on for the Boy Meets World reboot Girl Meets World. We couldn’t be more excited to have Topanga and Cory back in our living rooms on a weekly basis! We remember thinking Topanga was the prettiest girl on TV with the best hair when we were just a young tweenager.
Ben Savage confirmed on Twitter that’s he set to star as a Cory Matthews once again: “I’m going to be a father! Well, on TV at least. The “Boy Meets World” sequel is officially happening!”
A father? Yes, that’s right! Cory and Topanga are parents now! If you need a quick refresher, remember that Boy Meets World wrapped up in 2000 when Cory and Topanga we’re heading to NYC after finishing college. Girl Meets World will fast-forward 13 years to 2013 when Topanda and Cory are now parents to 13-year-old daughter Riley Matthews.
Although Riley has not yet been cast, we’re super psyched that Danielle Fishel is also on board for the Boy Meets World sequel.
“First of all, let me say that you, the fans of ‘Boy Meets World,’ have been awesome,” she wrote on Tumblr. “You, yes, even YOU, are the reason that ‘Girl Meets World’ WILL BE MADE. I do not know how many BMW cast members will be returning for GMW, or how often they may appear if and/or when they do appear… It will also have new faces, new themes…”
Um, does that mean Rider Strong is coming back as Cory’s dumb but lovable BFF Shawn Hunter??? We’ll have to wait until 2013 to see the pilot, but 2013 is only weeks away now! It will be a Happy New Year for all of us who fondly remember the ’90s!
