“Boy Meets World” was a loved television show in the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Featuring best friend duo Cory Matthews and Shawn Hunter, the show followed them through their teen years all the way up to college. Along the way, many lessons were learned and Cory even married his sweetheart, Topanga Lawrence.
The cast had a fantastic chemistry and many of them will be reunited for the upcoming spin-off “Girl Meets World.” On October 10, Danielle Fishel, who played Topanga Lawrence, spoke to Us Weekly about the upcoming series and revealed when it will start filming. A few pictures from set have been released, but it sounds like those photos were from the pilot episode which has been filmed and viewed by Disney. The show was green lit for a series.
Danielle told the site, “We start filming in November. Ben [Savage] and I take the kids out for dinner occasionally. We’ve tried to bond, and I think we’re already a real-life family so it’s going to be nice."
Just as Danielle Fishel will be reprising her role as Topanga Lawrence, Ben Savage will reprise his role of Ben Savage. The two will share an on-screen family and the parts for their children have already been cast. Rowan Blanchard could pass for Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel’s real life daughter; It is great they were able to find a young girl who favors both of them well.
Not much of the storyline is known, but a brief synopsis was released earlier this year which read:
Set in New York City, the new comedy series will tell the wonderfully funny, heartfelt stories that Boy Meets World is renowned for — only this time from a tween girl’s perspective — as the curious and bright 7th grader Riley and her quick-witted friend Maya (played by Sabrina Carpenter) embark on an unforgettable middle school experience. But their plans for a carefree year will be adjusted slightly under the watchful eyes of Riley’s dad who’s also a faculty member — and their new History teacher — and Riley’s mom who owns a trendy after-school hangout that specializes in pudding.
“Girl Meets World” will be slightly different from “Boy Meets World,” but that can be expected. Of course, it is great that the show will not be a carbon copy of the original.
Are you excited for “Girl Meets World” to premiere next year?
