'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.

'Girl Meets World': See the cast photo!

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. In the snapshot, Cory and Topanga Matthews (Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel) stand proudly as a gaggle of kids — not all theirs — fill the couch in front.

The reboot follows the story of Cory and Topanga’s daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard, center) as she navigates the waters of middle school alongside best friend Maya (Sabrina Carpenter, fourth from left). Peyton Meyer (far left) and Corey Fogelmanis (far right) play Lucas, Riley’s crush, and Farkle, a sometimes-nemesis, respectively. August Maturo plays the couple’s young son, Auggie.

Girl Meets World premieres this summer on the Disney Channel.

'Girl Meets World': Cory's parents and Shawn will appear! -- PHOTO

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!

No surprise here — without airing a single episode, EW has confirmed Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World has been given a full series order of 21 episodes, a.k.a. 21 more chances for Mr. Feeny to show up.

Earlier, star Danielle Fishel tweeted about the news:

'Girl Meets World' cast photo shows whole Matthews family -- PHOTO

Here’s the first Girl Meets World sneak peek of 2014.

Ben Savage has posted the above Matthews family photo, presumably from one of the episode tapings, to his Instagram. The picture shows the whole Matthews gang (complete with a very Topanga-esque headband on Danielle Fishel), as well as some of the other actors who’ll fill out the rest of the show.

For those who need up-to-the-minute news about the show, the recently launched Twitter account @GMWWriters is a peek inside the writers room — and that group sure knows how to tease. A recent tweet asked, “Happy New Year! Who would you invite to a Matthews holiday episode? Because we’re writing one. And there are lots of seats at the table.” Dare. To. Dream.

'Boy Meets World' cast talks inside jokes, hair, and Fee-hee-heenay -- VIDEO

Surprised at the obsessive torch that still burns online for Boy Meets World, a gentle TGIF sitcom that ended its 7-season run in 2000?

So is the comedy’s cast.

“I don’t think any of us anticipated that after the show went off the air, it was going to gain in popularity,” Danielle Fishel — who played smart, incredibly well-coiffed Topanga Lawrence — says in the below video, shot on the set of EW’s annual Reunions issue. But gain in popularity it did — so much that when the Disney Channel announced that it’s bringing some of the show’s most beloved characters back for a next-gen spinoff called Girl Meets World, the news nearly broke the Internet.

What can explain BMW‘s enduring pop-cultural stamp? It’s certainly not the show’s incredibly dated fashions, recalled with fondness by Fishel, Rider Strong (a.k.a. bad boy Shawn Hunter), and Ben Savage (a.k.a. everykid Cory Matthews, the show’s titular “boy”). Instead, it’s Boy Meets World‘s unique brand of heart, humor… and fabulous hair. “I’m still not stoked on the hair,” Strong says of his famously floppy ’90s boy band cut. “You’re the only one who wasn’t stoked on your hair,” replies Fishel.

Watch the gang — including Will Friedle (older brother Eric Matthews), Lindsay Nicksay (younger sister Morgan Matthews, for two seasons), and William Daniels (consummate teacher Mr. Feeny, who followed Cory, Shawn, and Topanga from middle school to college) — reminisce below. READ FULL STORY

'Boy Meets World': What happened to Mr. Turner? The answer is coming!

It’s a question that’s plagued Boy Meets World fans for decades: What ever happened to Jonathan Turner?

For those unfamiliar with the saga, a recap: Mr. Turner (Anthony Tyler Quinn) was Shawn (Rider Strong), Topanga (Danielle Fishel), and Cory’s (Ben Savage) motorcycle-riding homeroom teacher at John Adams High. A reluctant but effective authority figure, Turner had a reputation for being part friend, part mentor to his students, but he became much more than that during the latter part of the second season when he became Shawn’s legal guardian and invited Shawn to live with him.

Your TGIF crossover dreams are coming true: Jackee Harry is in the 'Girl Meets World' pilot

Boy Meets World Meets Sister Sister, anyone?

EW has confirmed that actress Jackée Harry, best known to Gen Xers as 227‘s vampy, Emmy-winning Sandra and to Millennials as Sister Sister‘s flamboyant adoptive mom Lisa, will appear in the pilot episode of Girl Meets World. There’s no word yet on whether Harry appears as a guest star or as a potential recurring character, should the Boy Meets World spinoff be picked up to series.

So, will Jackée be playing a sassy teacher who works with Cory (Ben Savage)? A sassy lawyer who works with Topanga (Danielle Fishel)? A sassy neighbor who serves as little Maya’s (Rowan Blancard) answer to Mr. Feeny (William Daniels)? Disney’s keeping mum on details for now — so feel free to speculate wildly, and to dream up possible GMW roles for other TGIF alumni. There’s got to be a part here for Melissa Joan Hart!
