Disney Channel orders second season of 'Girl Meets World'

Cory and Topanga are here to stay, at least for another year: The Disney Channel has picked up Girl Meets World for a second season.

Girl Meets World is a spin-off of the popular ’90s sitcom Boy Meets Worlda show that followed the lives of Cory (Ben Savage), Topanga (Danielle Fishel), and their friends and family as they grew up together. Savage and Fishel reprise their roles as Cory and Topanga in Girl Meets World as the parents of middle schooler Riley (Rowan Blanchard).


Guess how many times they say the word 'world' in the 'Girl Meets World' pilot

I’m on the record as being ambivalent about Girl Meets World, Disney Channel’s highly enthusiastically ridiculously anticipated sequel/spinoff to millennial favorite Boy Meets World. (I also take full responsibility for helping to stoke that fervor for the past year and a half.) On one hand: Nostalgia! On the other: This is clearly a series meant for viewers born after the original show ended in the year 2000, and if you’re not one of them, watching it will make you feel old. The show’s bright colors, broad jokes, and earnest lessons all scream “modern-day Disney,” and it’s unclear how much the series cares about hooking mothers and fathers as well as their progeny.

Rather than focusing mostly on TGIF refugees Cory and Topanga—played once more by original Boy stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel—Girl chooses to emphasize its tweenage characters: Cory and Topanga’s everygirl daughter, Riley (cute, poised Rowan Blanchard); her Shawn Hunter-esque best friend, rebellious Maya (Sabrina Carpenter, who shows some real promise as an actress); the dorky classmate who’s in love with them both, Farkle (Corey Fogelmanis, mugging his brains out; though the series hasn’t confirmed it yet, IMDB implies that he’s actually playing the son of Stuart Minkus, his own BMW analog); and quiet dreamboat Lucas (heartthrob-in-training Peyton Meyer), who’s clearly going to be the Topanga to Riley’s Cory.

On 'Girl Meets World,' Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel meet parenting

It’s a rehearsal day on the Girl Meets World set. Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel have traded the polished working-adult garb they wear on taping days in favor of casual, loose-fitting T-shirts. They have gathered in Savage’s dressing room for their interview, and though they play the parents on Disney’s upcoming Boy Meets World spin-off, sitting side-by-side cross-legged on the floor, they look just as youthful as when viewers first watched them on the small screen in 1993.

And, as the pair, both 33, explain in their sit-down with EW ahead of the show’s June 27 premiere, little has changed since then too. Oh, except they’re parents now. READ FULL STORY

'Girl Meets World' casts Cory's brother Joshua

Great news: The producers of Girl Meets World remembered that Cory has a much-younger brother.

Uriah Shelton (The Glades) has been cast to appear in the Boy Meets World spinoff, playing “Uncle Joshua,” EW has confirmed. A rep for the show says he’ll appear in more than one episode. E! first reported the news.

Joshua was a toddler when Cory was in college at the end of Boy Meets World, making him about 17 or 18 today. He’s just the latest in a long list of Boy Meets World characters set to appear on the Disney Channel spinoff, including Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong), Minkus (Lee Norris), Harley (Danny McNulty), and others. (Will Friedle, a.k.a big bro Eric, has to show up at some point, right!?)

Girl Meets World will officially premiere Friday, June 27 at 9:45 p.m. on Disney Channel; Disney Channel subscribers can watch the pilot now on WATCH Disney Channel.

'Girl Meets World': Check out the show poster here -- PHOTO

The poster for Girl Meets World is here.

The show — which released a trailer but does not yet have a specific premiere date — debuted the show’s official poster. Fans of the original Boy Meets World will likely be happy to see there’s a nod to the ’90s show: The ‘O’ in “World” is in fact a globe.

The art for the Disney Channel show features Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) between their son Auggie (August Maturo) and Riley’s best friend, Maya (Sabrina Carpenter), with the titular “Girl” Riley (Rowan Blanchard) standing below them.

'Girl Meets World' trailer is here: Welcome back, Cory and Topanga! -- VIDEO

The very first trailer for a show aimed at 12-year-olds that you’ll be watching weekly is here.

Girl Meets World, Disney Channel’s Boy Meets World spin-off that follows the trials and tribulations of Cory and Topanga’s preteen daughter, just released its first trailer. The clip is only 30 seconds long — far too short to make any sort of sweeping prediction about the quality of a program millennial kids have pinned all their hopes and dreams on — but it does allow fans their first extended look at what Cory and Topanga have been up to since BMW went off the air in 2000.

Is it summer yet?!

Disney Channel has just released the first cast photo for its upcoming Boy Meets World spin-off Girl Meets World, which premieres in a few months.

Christmas has come early.

Disney Channel just released a photo from an upcoming episode of Girl Meets World, and it appears that Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) and their kids will be joined for dinner by some Boy Meets World faves: William Russ, Betsy Randle, and…Rider Strong! A rep for the show confirmed to EW it’s for a holiday episode.

Russ and Randle played Cory’s parents on the original series; Strong, of course, portrayed Cory’s BFF Shawn. This is the first confirmation fans have gotten that any of them will return on the new show.

Fishel also tweeted the above photo, adding the message: “Happy to have these familiar faces on set with us this week!”

Girl Meets World is expected to make its long-awaited premiere later this year on the Disney Channel. READ FULL STORY

'Girl Meets World': Another 'Boy Meets World' alum set to return

Guess who’s coming back from the “other side of the school”?

EW has confirmed that Boy Meets World character Stuart Minkus — played by Lee Norris — will return for an episode of Girl Meets World. E! first reported the reunion and has a photo of him in character visiting Cory Matthews’s (Ben Savage) new classroom.

“I’ve had a great time being back on set with some of my old friends,” Norris said in a statement exclusively to E! News. “It still amazes me how many people love and remember Minkus, and I’m excited for the fans to catch up with him after all these years.”

As fans likely remember, Minkus was a nerdy classmate of Cory, Shawn, and Topanga’s who appeared in the early days of Boy Meets World. He disappeared for a few years before finally showing up again in the high school graduation episode, explaining that during his long absence he was merely hanging out on “the other side of the school.”

Girl Meets World, which has already been ordered for 21 episodes, is expected to debut on the Disney Channel sometime in 2014.

Jane Lynch to guest star on 'Girl Meets World'

Well, if Cory and Topanga’s daughter Riley decides she wants to be a cheerleader, we hear there could be someone in town worthy of coaching her. Or perhaps that’s a really, really bad idea.

Regardless, when Jane Lynch was recently asked on Twitter if there was any truth to the rumors that she will guest star on Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World, the Glee actress responded, “Yes there is truth.” Could she be a quirky neighbor? A love interest for Mr. Feeny? Let the speculation begin!

Earlier, star Danielle Fishel tweeted about the news:
