Boy Meets World SequelThe world has met Cory Matthews — is it time now to meet his daughter?

The Disney Channel is in the early stages of developing a Boy Meets World sequel series called Girl Meets World, TVLine has learned exclusively.

UPDATE | ‘Girl Meets World’ — Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel Officially Sign On

Sources say that the cable network is trying to land original series stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel to revisit their roles of sweethearts Cory and Topanga, who married before their ABC sitcom ended its seven-season run. The new series would center on their preteen daughter.

Since wrapping Boy, Savage’s TV guest-star gigs have included BonesChuck and Without a Trace. Fishel’s post-Boy work includes National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze and hosting Style Network’s The Dish

  • What they need to do to make this successful is recreate the tone of the original show. Sure BMW was off the wall goofy at times but it was made into a hit because of how hard hitting some of the episodes were. This show had some great drama and because of that it was taken seriously. Frankly, I don’t think that Disney has it in them anymore. The lessons of today’s Disney shows are the simple and sometimes even childish lessons that most BMW fans learned from cartoons like Arthur and Recess…Maybe if Disney takes themselves seriously again, they can make a seriously good show.

  • Yes heard about this via Deadline. I think it would fit better on ABC if they are trying to revive their TGIF lineup or maybe ABC FAmily

  • Rider Strong said in an interview a long time ago if there were ever a spin-off series they would have to kill off Shawn because he wouldn’t reprise the role…I hope he would change his mind, he was the best character aside from Feeny!
