Ben Savage & Danielle Fishel Join Girl Meets World

90s kids can all rejoice today. One of our favorite shows from our favorite decade, Boy Meets World is returning to TV in sequel form with Girl Meets World. Yesterday it was confirmed that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel had signed on to reprise their roles as Cory and Topanga. The new series will air on the Disney Channel, so the jury is still out on if it will be any good, but let's hope! Original creator Michael Jacobs is developing it, so there is hope.

Girl Meets World is about their 13-year-old daughter Riley, and now Cory is a middle school teacher, exactly who he used to torment. No word on if Mr Feeny or any other original castmember besides Fishel & Savage will be back, but one can assume some might be. We all know the infamous Lauren from the Ski Lodge won't be.

Boy Meets World ran on ABC from 1993 to 2000, as part of the famous TGIF lineup. Because this new version is on the Disney Channel, does that mean it can't be as edgy as it should be? Hopefully they can find a good balance and make it more interesting than the corny kids shows currently on the Disney Channel. They're obviously going to attract a broader and older audience to this, at least initially.
