Disney Channel's anticipated Boy Meets World followup Girl Meets World now has an official premiere date and an adorable trailer to go with it. The video gives us an introduction to the energetic Riley, who faces the awkwardness of having her father for a history teacher. And said father faces the distress of accepting that his daughter is growing up. As the new preview announces, Girl Meets World will debut on Disney Channel on Friday, June 27 at 9:45 p.m. A little late for a kid's show, no? Hopefully Mom and Dad will let the kids stay up to watch it. There actually is a way to catch the premiere a bit sooner than that.
The new trailer follows the previously released teaser for Girl Meets World. EW reported the date announcement for Girl Meets World, along with news that the comedy will be available to those with verified access to the WATCH Disney Channel streaming platform will be able to catch the series premiere beginning May 21, which is more than a month ahead of the broadcast premiere. Disney Channel will also give kids an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the series on which this new comedy is based through a Boy Meets World marathon, which will air June 15.
The original 90s sitcom centered on Cory Matthews, a kid growing up and learning about life and love and all the things a kid needs to deal with as he approaches manhood. The followup series will center on Cory and his wife Topanga's eldest daughter Riley, who's approaching adolescence. Here's the official description that was released when Disney first announced the series:
Set in New York City, the new comedy series will tell the wonderfully funny, heartfelt stories that "Boy Meets World" is renowned for -- only this time from a tween girl's perspective -- as the curious and bright 7th grader Riley and her quick-witted friend Maya embark on an unforgettable middle school experience. But their plans for a carefree year will be adjusted slightly under the watchful eyes of Riley's dad who's also a faculty member (and their new History teacher) and Riley's mom who owns a trendy after school hangout that specializes in pudding.
Girl Meets World comes from BMW creator Michael Jacobs. The comedy stars Rowan Blanchard as Riley, while Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel will reprise their roles as Cory and Topanga. THR released the poster for Girl Meets World late last month. Check it out below...
With the June premiere date set, not to mention the planned May preview, fans of the original series and kids eager to see Disney Channel's latest live-action offering can start counting down the days until Riley arrives.
