Sabrina Carpenter

Thirteen- year -old Sabrina Carpenter will play Maya Fox, the best friend of 11- year- old Riley Matthews (played by Rowan Blanchard).

Cory Matthews (played by Ben Savage) and Topanga Lawrence (played by Danielle Fishel) will reprise their roles on the spinoff. The couple are happily married in “Girl Meets World” and also parents to 13- year- old Riley. The story is told from Riley’s point of view.

Michael Jacobs (“Boy Meets World”) will executive produce.

The pilot will begin filming in February. It is unknown if any of the original’s other stars will return.

Carpenter, who is represented by Paradigm and Perlman Management, plays a young version of Chloe Goodwin in Fox’s “The Goodwin Games,” which has not yet been scheduled. She has also appeared on “Law & Order: SVU,” “Phineas & Ferb” and the voice of Princess Vivian in “Sofia the First.”

She also was cast on Disney XD pilot “Gulliver Quinn,” which starred Jon Heder (“Napoleon Dynamite”) as a student returning to seventh grade after a 15- year research expedition with his family. The show was greenlit but never made it to series.

Thanks for sharing the information about Sabrina! I’m not familiar with any of her previous work, but I am happy that her getting the role means we are much closer to a premiere date! I’m excited to see how the new cast fares and how the show turns out. I hope it turns out good, but either way I’ll be recording it to my DISH Hopper. I do work a lot of overtime at DISH and it’s usually hard for me to watch live TV, so I record everything I can to my DVR. Luckily I do have 2,000 hours of entertainment I can store, so I will have plenty of room to record this series among all of my other shows in the future.
