Rowan Blanchard was cast as Cory and Topanga’s daughter, Riley. While being questioned on the red carpet, she admits that she has obviously met Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, but what about the other original cast members? Although Rider Strong has not yet officially signed on to reprise his role of Shawn Hunter, he has stopped by on set and met the precocious young actress. Rowan Blanchard says she has also met Will Friedle (Eric Matthews), Maitland Ward (Rachel McGuire), and perhaps most excitingly, William Daniels (Mr. Feeny.)
When asked if any of the original cast members will be making an appearance, Rowan Blanchard reveals that the creator of both “Boy Meets World” and “Girl Meets World” that, “Everyone will be making a guest star appearance hopefully.”
Girl Meets World is slowly becoming a reality, and it only took…a little over a decade! It’s alright though, all we really want is quality and a whole lot of awesome acting just like Boy Meets World had. Check out the tweets below from some of the cast mates, it appears that everyone is having a blast which means the chemistry is off the radar! With everyone already getting along so well, we can expect great things in terms of the acting and flow of the show.
#GirlMeetsWorld just finished our first episode. Simply INCREDIBLE. 2nd day with my wonderful cast/crew and we are already a family. ❤😊❤
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.
August Maturo has signed on to play Riley Matthew’s brother and revealed on the social networking site, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY #GirlMeetsWorld! 1st day of filming.”
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.
