Girl Meets World has cast Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, officially making the Boy Meets World spinoff super exciting for fans of the original ABC comedy.

As previously announced, the forthcoming Disney Channel series will focus on the teen daughter of married Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence Matthews.

The story will be told from Riley’s point of view, with her father serving as the school’s history teacher.


Savage is only 32 and Fishel 31 (both could pass for even younger no less), so the duo having a teenager is a stretch … but hey, it’s television, right?

The casting of Cory and Topanga leaves us hoping that Rider Strong’s Shawn and/or William Daniels’ Mr. Feeny will also reprise their roles on the Boy Meets World spinoff.

No date has been announced for the pilot yet, but Boy Meets World creator and executive producer Michael Jacobs will helm the show and further casting.
