‘Boy Meets World’ Cast Returns

Feeling nostalgic? Time to take a trip back to the good ol' days with some news on perhaps one of our generation's favorite childhood shows, "Boy Meets World."

Our beloved Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence left us out of the loop for over a decade, but they have now returned with a whole new story to tell.

Disney Channel will debut a spin-off of the 90s family sitcom under the name "Girl Meets World," though the pilot is still in its early stages of development. Creator of the original series, Michael Jacobs, will be the executive producer the new show.

Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, who played the original lovebirds Cory and Topanga, have officially signed on to reprise their roles.

The pair will play parents to 13-year-old daughter and main character Riley Matthews. According to a Disney email to E!, Riley's "edgy" best friend, who sounds a lot like a female Shawn Hunter, will be named Maya.

A nationwide search for the teen duo is still underway, though news seems to be coming our way soon enough. On Monday evening Savage tweeted, "Big week… Time to go find myself a daughter! #GirlMeetsWorld."

Fans are responding positively and had "Boy Meets World" trending on Twitter even before news of the pilot became official. Fishel and Jacobs claimed to have been totally "blown away" by fan reactions when news first leaked about the possibility of a spin-off.

In mid-November, viewers flocked to Twitter again for answers on Ben and Danielle's return to the small screen, to which Fishel jokingly replied, "Just want you guys to know that @BenSavage and I have talked and we've decided…Thanksgiving is going to be delicious this year!"

Perhaps just as excited as the fans are "Boy Meets World" cast members. Rider Strong, who played Cory's bad-boy best friend Shawn, is "extremely happy" that his former co-stars have signed on to continue the story. Though his character has no official involvement yet, he told TVLine, "There might be a chance to see some of the BMW cast in a guest spot, and I think it would be nice to find out where our characters have been all these years."

Lily Nicksay, who played Cory's younger sister Morgan, also chimed in when hearing about the project. Though she was only 5 years old when she joined "Boy Meets World," she quickly became a fan favorite. "I would love to talk to [Disney] about being a part of it," Nicksay told TMZ regarding the new show.

On behalf of the cast and creators, Fishel thanked everyone through Tumblr for the uproar of positive feedback and promised to "make GMW with the same honesty, innocence, and intelligence that [viewers] learned to expect from BMW."
