For the past couple of weeks there have been rumors swirling about Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel reprising their roles as 90s super-couple Corey and Topanga.
Well, according to Savage's twitter account and Fishel's tumblr, it's happening!
The story plot? Corey and Topanga Matthews are married and have kids. The show is from their daughter's perspective- hence, Girl Meets World.
According to the Huffington Post:
Disney Channel confirms the pilot is still in "very early stages of development" and that a nationwide casting search is still underway for 13-year-old Riley Matthews. "Girl Meets World" will follow Cory (Savage) and Topanga's (Fishel) teen daughter Riley. "Boy Meets World" creator Michael Jacobs is behind the project.
The cast for "Girl Meets World" will also include Maya, Riley's edgy best friend. Sounds a bit like Shawn Hunter to us!
In the new series Cory will be a history teacher, just like his "Boy Meets World" mentor Mr. Feeny.
"I'm very excited for Disney and [creator] Michael Jacobs," William Russ, who played Cory's dad Alan Matthews on the series, said in a statement to HuffPost TV. "They are a great team and will produce an exceptional show, I have no doubt."
Anthony Tyler Quinn, who played Mr. Turner on "Boy Meets World," told HuffPost TV he'd be interested in appearing on the new series.
"'Boy Meets World' was and continues to be these beautiful brushstrokes in my life," he said. "It was a wonderful experience, and I think Michael's going to create something fresh. I'd love to be a part of it."
I hope they bring back as much as the original cast as possible!
*DEAD* @ Anthony Tyler Quinn being interested in appearing cause he ain't got nothing else going for him! Other then that, I'm excited for the show!ReplyDelete
