If you have been pondering the future of the characters in 'Boy Meets World,' ponder no longer. Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Disney Channel's 'Girl Meets World' has been given a full series order of 21 episodes; and this has all occurred without the channel airing a single episode!
Danielle Fishel has tweeted, “Got the great news tonight that #GirlMeetsWorld was picked up for 8 more episodes - a total of 21! Can’t wait for everyone to see them all.”
'Boy Meets World' was one of my favorite shows on ABC’s TGIF. Since it ended, I have been curious about the evolution of Cory and Topanga’s relationship. Luckily, last February, EW interviewed Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage to ask some questions about the new show.
Entertainment Weekly asked, “What will Cory and Topanga’s relationship be like now?” Fishel responded, “You’re going to see a lot of the love that you felt and that you saw between Cory and Topanga in the original show. I think you’re also going to see a little bit more maturity out of both of them in certain aspects and I think you’re going to see them as they always did, helping each other find their way back to themselves and to who they are as a couple."
Fishel expanded on the relationship, "By now, Cory and Topanga have been together for a very long time. They’re a team. They know each other very well. They know each other’s flaws. I think it’s going to be fun to watch them help each other along the way and be stronger than ever as a team.”
The 'Girl Meets World' team will also be raising children. Last February EW announced that Rowan Blanchard was cast to play Topanga and Cory’s daughter, Riley. It has also been confirmed that August Maturo will play Louis, Riley's younger brother, while Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) will play Riley’s best friend.
There is no specific air date for the ‘Boy Meets World’ spin-off premiere. However, the show has been filming for the past few weeks, and is expected to air within the year. I personally cannot wait for Mr. Feeney (William Daniels) to teach me some new life lessons.
