Boy Meets World's Ben Savage And Danielle Fishel On Board For Disney Channel's Girl Meets World

When we learned that Disney Channel was toying with the idea of developing a sequel series to the beloved 90s sitcom Boy Meets World, we were left to wonder if Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel would return to their characters Cory and Topanga. Though nothing is set in stone for the show itself, it sounds like Savage and Fishel are on board to return to their roles.

Earlier this month, we learned that a Boy Meets World sequel, titled Girl Meets World, was in the early stages of development at Disney Channel. The project would focus on the preteen daughter of Cory and Topanga, two of the lead characters of the original series, who fell for one another as kids, dated and later married during the course of the comedy's run. With talk of a sequel series, many fans of the original show wondered if we might see actors Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel reunited as Cory and Topanga again. The Huffington Post shared word that Disney Channel says both actors would reprise their roles in the pilot, which is still in "very early stages of development." Also returning to work on the pilot is Boy Meets World creator Michael Jacobs.

The site goes on to say that a nationwide casting search is underway to find 13-year-old Riley Matthews, Cory and Topanga's daughter.They also mention that Cory's profession is a history teacher, which would have him following in the footsteps of Mr. Feeny, the teacher and neighbor to Cory when he was growing up.

While it sounds like things are still just getting going for this project, word that Savage and Fishel are on board to star bodes well for the pilot. Now we'll have to wait and see which lucky girl signs on to play their daughter.
