Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel officially in for GIRL MEETS WORLD

We recently reported that the Disney Channel was developing a sequel series to Boy Meets World titled Girl Meets World. The potential series would focus on the 13-year-old daughter of Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel), but it was unknown at the time whether Savage and Fishel would be willing to return to the characters. Fans can rest easy now, though, as word comes that the actors are set to reprise their roles in Girl Meets World.

Per TV Line, Savage and Fishel have officially signed on to star in the pilot for Girl Meets World. The potential series is still in the early stages of development, but along with Savage and Fishel, Boy Meets World creator/executive producer Michael Jacobs is also onboard. Early word is that the adult Cory is now a history teacher at his daughter’s school (aka the new Feeny), and The Matthews also have a 14-year-old son named Elliot. Casting is underway for the title role of Riley as well as her best friend, a “dark and edgy” girl named Maya (Shawn 2.0?). It’s worth noting that the order right now is only for a pilot, so Disney Channel could ultimately decide not to move forward with the full series after they screen the pilot.

It’s definitely encouraging that Savage and Fishel are onboard, but still no word on other favorites like Eric (Will Friedle) and Shawn (Rider Strong).
