Aw! Cory And Topanga, Together Again

We've geeked out over this for months and now it's official: Girl Meets World will be around for at least one season!

Congratulations, '90s kids, your favorite couple is back: Cory and Topanga are returning to a television near you for the viewing pleasure of your kid. Disney has ordered up a full season of Girl Meets World, the long awaited spin-off/sequel to that TGIF favorite, Boy Meets World.

Will Shawn Hunter make an appearance? >>

The executive vice president of original programming at Disney, Adam Bonnett, made the announcement today:

Boy Meets World and its story of adolescent self discovery resonated with an entire generation of tweens. In the same way audiences fell in love with Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence, we look forward to introducing our viewers to their daughter Riley Matthews in Girl Meets World and building a memorable connection with a whole new generation of fans.

Girl Meets World official full-season announcementGirl Meets World will pick up several years from where its predecessor left off, in New York City. Our favorite couple, Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) are now the proud parents of an adorable 11-year-old-daughter, Riley (Rowan Blanchard). And what are her parents up to? Riley's dad is a History teacher (just like Mr. Feeny!) at Riley's new middle school, and her mom owns a popular after-school hangout. Think of it as the new Chubbie's from BMW, only cleaner and specializing in pudding. Just like the original, Girl Meets World will follow Riley (and her best friend, Maya) as she tries to grow up and become her own person while still under the watchful eye of her parents.

Fear not! Mr. Feeny is set to appear on Girl Meets World >>

The big draw for parents of the Boy Meets World generation was the wholesome qualities of the show. It had serious moments without even broaching anything to awkward or risqué. From the sound of it, you'll be comforted to know you can expect more of the same from Girl Meets World.

We've known the series was in the works for months now and heard they were filming the pilot, but this is the first official announcement that Girl Meets World is a real thing and will be around for at least one full season. We can't wait.

I am thrilled that this show is coming back, but i am upset that it's on Disney. They don't allow shows to go on longer than three years and it's going to be sweet candy crap like Hannah Montana. In BMW, Shawn's father was an alcoholic who abandoned his son the same way his wife did. He also had different siblings from different mothers. How's Disney gonna spin the things like that?!?!?!?!?

her best friend should be Shawn and Angela's daughter. That would be awesome.

Growing up i was in love with boy meets world and i still watch the reruns when they come on..... today is the first ive heard of girl meets world. Im 21 years old and i can promise you i will be a deadicated fan until the day i die lol. I cant wait to see the new show and i hope it warms my heart as much as boy meets world. Topanga and cory where and always will be my fav, growing up I didnt have my dad he died when i was very young so i didnt really have a model to show me what love was, but when i started watching boy meets world it changed all that. I know its only a show, but for some ppl my self included its more than a show its a way of some to find things in life that some parents cant give us. One day I truly hope to have love and trust like cory and Topanga share. P.S Thanks for being my model to look up to growing up.... I will always be a die hard fan of cory and Topanga. Love, Michelle
