Fans of Cory & Topanga, start celebrating because it’s official – Disney has ordered ‘Girl Meets World’ to series. After early word dropped last fall about a possible sequel to the ’90s smash-sitcom, ‘Boy Meets World’, Disney has finally confirmed that GMW will begin production this summer with a series premiere date set for early 2014.

‘Girl Meets World’ will feature Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, and Bill Daniels in their reprised roles of Cory & Topanga Matthews and Mr. Feeny. This time around, the story will center on Cory and Topanga’s 7th grade daughter, Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard), and her adventures in middle school with her best friend, Maya (Sabrina Carpenter). Riley’s teacher is none other than Cory, implying that Mr. Feeny’s influence on the young Mr. Matthews, both during the show and in the years following the series finale of BMW, was immense. ‘Girl Meets World’ promises to deliver the same fun-loving, feel-good, family oriented messages that everyone came to know, love, and expect from ‘Boy Meets World.’ But Ben Savage wants to remind us that this is a sequel, not a remake. “We’re not trying to do a reunion of ‘Boy Meets World.’ ‘Boys Meets World’ meant a lot to a lot of people growing up and we want to give that to a new generation,” Ben told E! News at the ATX Television Festival last week.

There has been no word of any other ‘Boy Meets World’ favorites returning to the small screen – think Shawn, Uncle Eric, or Angela – but with photos like this leaking from the set, a girl can dream, right?
