Christmas has come early for '90s kids everywhere, today, because Disney announced that they've ordered a full season's worth of Girl Meets World episodes. The spinoff/sequel series is based on TGIF staple, Boy Meets World. GMW focuses on the life of Riley Matthews, the daughter of the beloved Cory and Topanga from the original series.
"I am grateful to everyone at Disney Channel for the opportunity to reach my favorite audience, which has always been kids," said Jacobs. "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."
Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are reprising their roles as Cory and Topanga, with Michael Jacobs at the helm, once again. It's still not clear whether or not Rider Strong (Shawn) or Will Friedle (Eric) will be joining the cast for the spinoff effort. No word yet on whether or not Lindsay Weir will make another cameo and try to homewreck the Matthews family and ruin Riley's life.
The New York City-set Girl Meets World will follow seventh grader Riley and her best friend Maya as they navigate through middle school. Their plans for a carefree year will be adjusted under the watch of Riley's parents Cory, who works as a history teacher at the school, and Topanga, who owns an afterschool hangout known for its pudding.
