Ben Savage: 'Girl Meets World' Gets Series Order from Disney!

Here is some amazing news to make your Monday morning a little better – Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel‘s new series Girl Meets World has officially been greenlit by the Disney Channel!

The actors reprise their roles of Cory and Topanga from the beloved series Boy Meets World and the new show revolves around their tween daughter Riley, played by Rowan Blanchard.

The pilot episode also features Sabrina Carpenter as Riley’s best friend and William Daniels making a return as Mr. Feeny.

“I am grateful to everyone at Disney Channel for the opportunity to reach my favorite audience, which has always been kids,” executive producer Michael Jacobs said (via THR). “Girl Meets World is a new show for a new generation that will be rooted in the same kind of honest, comedic storytelling about coming of age and the importance of family and friendship that made Boy Meets World so popular.”
