Just the other day we heard amazing news about the possibility of one of my favorite shows coming to theatres. PITNBRS Randal, Joan, Adriana, and Jennie all joined me in celebrating the “return” of HBO‘s series Bored To Death, and now we’re getting news about another one of my fave shows making a comeback. Except… I don’t know that I should be as excited about this one. Boy Meets World, the re-runs of which I still occasionally watch, may be coming back to television via a follow-up series on the Disney channel. The show would center on the daughter of beloved 90s TV couple Cory and Topanga. Sooo… Girl Meets World? I dunno y’all. But we have deets inside!
The Hollywood Reporter has the story:
Disney Channel is in early stages of development on a new original television series centered on the daughter of golden couple Cory and Topanga, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Boy Meets World, the half-hour comedy that ran as part of ABC’s “TGIF” block for seven seasons from 1993-2000, centered on the lessons learned by Cory Matthews as he goes through life starting as a young boy. By the time the series ended, Cory and Topanga married and began living together.
Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel and Rider Strong were among the main cast members on the show, which aired 158 total episodes during its run.
Casting is under way on the project from Boy Meets World executive producer Michael Jacobs. There is no official word on whether Savage or Fishel, who portrayed Cory and Topanga, respectively, would return to reprise their roles should the follow-up make it to the pilot or series stage.
Honestly? I don’t know what to do with this information: laugh, cry, rejoice??? I don’t know! On the one hand, if Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel aren’t down with it (and Mr. Feeny!) then I just don’t see what I’m supposed to be excited about. However, if they do come back, it’ll never be like it was! Because we’re not in the 90s, lol! Still, I suppose it’s a good sign that the executive producer of the original series is involved in the new project. What do you guys think? I friggen love Topanga, but who is this mysterious daughter of Topanga and how do I know if I should love her?! I’m in a glass case of emotion, y’all.
P.S. Who’s been watching Mr. Feeny/William Daniels on Grey’s Anatomy? I saw him for like two seconds, as I was gearing up to watch Scandal and I was like damn! I really need to get up on this show!
