The news that the Disney Channel was considering launching a spin-off from the classic TGIF sitcom Boy Meets World was greeted with universal excitement. The chance to revisit the lives of Cory and Topanga was very exciting for a generation raised on their weekly high school adventures. Disney made the smart move in launching a spin-off that places Cory and Topanga into the roles of Mom and Dad. They’ve already faced the challenges of the world, and now it is time for a new group to face the pains of adolescence.
The new show, Girl Meets World, follows Cory and Topanga’s daughter Riley as she enters the 7th grade. Riley not only has her school work and friends, but also a meddling younger brother to deal with. For older viewers the show promises appearances by Mr. Feeny and Cory’s old best friend Shawn Hunter. Getting Williams Daniels and Rider Strong back on the show is a great way to connect the new show to the classic incarnation.
Here’s a preview from Disney of the brand new Girl Meets World launching tonight.
The series description is below.
The series will follow Cory and Topanga Matthews’ daughter, Riley (Rowan Blanchard), and her best friend, Maya (Sabrina Carpenter), as they navigate the challenges of life as they start 7th grade. The series is set in New York City, where Cory and Topanga moved to in the Boy Meets World series finale
