Welcome to their world!
It’s been 14 years since ABC’s coming-of-age comedy “Boy Meets World” ended, but if you’re feeling nostalgic for Cory, Topanga, and the gang, a spinoff is coming soon to Disney Channel — and the network has the trailer to prove it.
The TGIF staple, which followed Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and his gal pal Topanga (Danielle Fishel) from middle school through college and then on to marriage (to each other!), has paved the way for the sequel sitcom, “Girl Meets World.”
The 30-second clip for the highly anticipated follow-up gives a first look at the couple’s tween daughter, Riley (Rowan Blanchard), and the angsty fact that she’s stuck living in her father’s world. This, after he busts her for trying to sneak out of her bedroom window with pal Maya (Sabrina Carpenter).
Cory, who’s now a history teacher, tells his girl, “Here's what I'm thinking. If it was your world, Maya would have you on the subway already thinking you put something over on me.” Then he tells his daughter she’s stuck in his world “until you make it yours.” Ugh! When did Cory get all fatherly on us?
The reboot will also feature the return of Lee Norris as Cory’s pal Stuart Minkus, while William Daniels will be back as the iconic teacher Mr. Feeny in the pilot episode. Rider Strong, who played Cory’s wingman Shawn, and Betsy Randle and William Russ (Cory's parents Alan and Amy Matthews) will also make cameos.
New to the cast: August Maturo as Cory and Topanga’s youngest son, Auggie Matthews; Corey Fogelmanis as kid genius Shamus Farkle; and Peyton Meyer as Lucas Friar, Riley’s super cute guy friend. (Hmmm… will history repeat itself with Riley and her cute middle school male pal? After all, that’s how Cory and Topanga started.)
Check out the trailer above for a first look at Cory’s parenting skills. (And yes, Topanga makes a cameo, too!) We can practically hear Alan and Amy Matthews, circa 1993, gently warning him: “Wait until you have kids of your own!”
“Girl Meets World” premieres this summer on Disney Channel.
