Ben Savage promises 'Girl Meets World' won't ruin the legacy of 'Boy Meets World'

Corey and Topanga

Like all the ‘Boy Meets World’ fans out there, I am hesitantly optimistic about the return of some of the most loved television characters I grew up with (and the addition of some new ones). ‘Girl Meets World’ will hopefully bring back a family-centred, funny and loveable storyline to television, however, I am a little nervous that it could turn into a case of “you should have left well enough alone”.

‘Boy Meets World’ star, and TV dad of ‘Girl Meets World’s’ title character, Ben Savage hears our fears and ensures us worriers that the spin-off series will not ruin the legacy of the original, but will honor it instead. "We're not doing a Boy Meets World reunion," Savage told TVGuide.com at the ATX Television Festival. "It's a new show that will hopefully speak to a new generation, and I think people will get that. We're not going to mess with their memories; we're doing an entirely new thing that will hopefully help a new generation grow."

Savage admits that he was also a bit resistant at first about joining the project, but that creator and executive producer Michael Jacobs’ vision convinced him it would be worth it. . "We weren't going to mess with it unless it was something we were really comfortable with," Savage says. "Believe me, people come up to me and say, 'Please don't ruin the show, don't even do it!' It's something people are very concerned about, but we worked very diligently and were very careful to make sure it's not something that ruins the legacy of Boy Meets World."

Corey (Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) are both returning for the Disney pilot as parents to 13-year-old Riley (Rowan Blanchard). To add to that nostalgic feeling, Mr. Feeney (William Daniels) will also be appearing on the new series.
