Here’s the catch though. Not only are they older and Toponga and Corey are having a baby but the show is not called ‘Boy Meets World’. It’s called Girl Meets World.
Danielle Fishel, who played Topanga Lawrence during TGIF Nights on channel 7 , took to her Tumblr page after news Monday that she’d be taking over her role for the follow-up series. Corey (Ben Savage) has signed onto the gig as well but, Shawn, Eric, Mr. & Mrs. Matthews and Mr. Feeney have no signed up yet. Boy Meets World without Mr. Feeney just doesn’t cut it, so I think this can go either really good or really bad. It would be flawless if the entire cast returned. But, who knows if that will happen or why they wouldn’t come back.
“I do not know how many BMW cast members will be returning for GMW, or how often they may appear if and/or when they do appear,” Fishel put on her Tumblr page late Monday night.
“Making the decision to do the show involved more conversations than you can possible imagine,”. “The first comment out of every person’s mouth was, ‘Let’s only do it if we think we can create something as special as we did with BMW.’ And that’s exactly why fans may not eat up Girl Meets World so welcomingly.
One thing is for sure, I know millions will be viewing in on opening night to decide for themselves if it will make the cut. Girl Meets World will air on the Disney Channel sometime in 2013.
