Yes, this is real life.
Just a few weeks after plans surfaced of a Boy Meets World follow-up, our nostalgic wishes have been granted. It has been confirmed by TV Line that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel will be reprising their signature roles as Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence in the aptly titled Girl Meets World.
The reboot is being done by the Disney Channel and Boy Meets World creator himself Michael Jacobs, with the premise paralleling the original show's pilot season. The setting will take place more than a decade after the show's original run, with the main character being Cory & Topanga's 13-year-old daughter Riley Matthews. Shooting is scheduled to start in February.
A nationwide casting call is already in place. Creators are said to be searching for a fresh face to play Riley, who is described as "an adorable girl on the cusp of whatever comes next in life, and wanting to rush into it head first...and spends most of her time juggling the obstacles that life throws her way... there is no obstacle in this girl's world that can dampen her bright spirit and eternal optimism."
As for the show's Mr. Feeny, Cory will be taking his place in the form of a history teacher in Riley's school! In addition to that, casting is now searching for a girl to play Maya, Riley's bestie. She has been described as being the second coming of Cory's BFF Shawn (in girl form) who exhibits "acerbic wit" and is "dark and edgy, but just as fiercely loyal to Riley as Riley is to her."
One could only hope that this epic bromance will make a cameo, at the very least.
