Fans of “Boy Meets World” have been patiently waiting for any news about the upcoming reboot of the popular show. “Girl Meets World” will follow Cory and Topanga’s daughter, Riley, as she tries to find her way through the world, much like Ben Savage’s character did on “Boy Meets World.” On Nov.11, some new details about the show were released and some very exciting news about the show broke on Twitter.
Ben Savage will reprise his role of Cory Matthews and he shared a photo of two chairs, one featuring his name and another featuring the name Danielle Fishel. Danielle Fishel played Ben Savage’s love interest on the long running series and will reprise her role of Topanga Lawrence for “Girl Meets World.”
Along with the photo Ben Savage wrote, “Together again.”
The show is not meant to be a reprisal of “Boy Meets World,” although fans will get to see some of their favorite characters. Perhaps one of the most exciting storylines that is slated to be told is the fate of Mr. Turner. Mr. Turner’s last scene was on a season three episode of “Boy Meets World” where the character was involved in a motorcycle accident. However, the accident was likely not fatal as Mr. Turner is mentioned (though not actually seen) on the high school graduation episode.
Rider Strong played Cory’s best friend, Shawn Hunter, and although he isn’t officially a part of the “Girl Meets World” cast, he says there is a chance that fans will see him reprise his role.
For now, though, Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, Rowan Blanchard, and August Maturo are filming for “Girl Meets World” which is set to premiere on Disney in January 2014.
