It’s been 14 years since Boy Meets World when off the air, but Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are back to reprise their roles on a brand new Disney Channel series.
Set in New York City, Girl Meets World picks up more than 10 years after Boy Meets World left off. The former adolescent flames are now married and raising two children, 7th-grade daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and son Auggie (August Maturo). The story is centered around Riley, the title character.
“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,” says creator Michael Jacobs.
Girl Meets World is being shot episode by episode! Can you feel it? Our brains are growing impatient and the need to fill the Boy Meets World void is becoming unbearable. We keep seeing picture on top of picture of the new cast mates. But we want more. We want to know! Know what? We want to know when the diamond of a show will premiere! We all heard it was Jan/Feb, but obviously the rumor is being put to rest as we are nearing the end of Jan. So when? When are we going to Cory and Topanga’s Chewbacca and Plankton?
Well is been sorta kinda confirmed by EW (Entertainment Weekly) in the photo below:

Yes, it says Summer! Can it really be? We can only hope, and pray, and wait. We’ll never stop waiting, but the anticipation is killing us!
The Girl Meets World writers room officially launched their Twitter account with the handle, @GMWWriters, a mere 23 hours ago, but they’ve already got all of us living withBoy Meets World nostalgia in a stir. The account, that’s validity was confirmed by Danielle Fishel yesterday and is followed by the actress formerly known as Topanga Lawrence and Ben Savage, has only tweeted three times so far, but glorious and fan frenzy-inspiring tweets they have been. Ever since Disney announced their plans to build a sequel to everyone’s favorite show we’ve all been wondering whether or not and when we’d get to see some of the familiar faces we grew to love in the 90s and now we know that we will.
The writers’ first tweet played on the famous first words of Morgan Matthews upon her return as an adolescent after a long, unexplained absence, “That was the longest time out I’ve ever had!” And their subsequent tweets have been teasing that they’ve chosen the show’s first former Boy Meets World cast guest star. That’s right, your dreams for Girl Meets World are officially going to come true — it’s going to be as nostalgic as you were hoping it’d be. Now it’s only a matter of who from the BMW cast will be the first to return, here’s the top five guest stars we’d want to see.
First, the tweets that have our imaginations spinning out of control as to who the first guest star will be:
Fade in: Our thirteen year summer is over. Longest timeout ever.
