WASHINGTON – Fans of the ’90s TV show starring characters Cory and Topanga will be happy to hear the Disney Channel is moving forward with the spin-off to “Boy Meets World.”
“Girl Meets World,” which revolves around the couple’s daughter, will debut in 2014. Production is set to begin this summer, reports USA Today.
Word broke that casting was underway for the series in November 2012 as the stars of the series tweeted their reaction.
Actors Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are set to reprise their roles as Cory and Topanga who are now the parents of Riley, played by 11-year-old Rowan Blanchard. Riley’s best friend, Maya, played by Sabrina Carpenter, also has a large part in the show.
The Disney Channel released photos from the filming of the show Monday.
“Boy Meets World and its story of adolescent self-discovery resonated with an entire generation of tweens. 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 … and building a memorable connection with a whole new generation of fans,” Disney Channels Worldwide executive vice president Adam Bonnett said in a statement to USA Today.
