ABC developing ‘Boy Meets World’ sequel titled ‘Girl Meets World’

By Daniel S Levine,

ABC is reportedly developing a sequel to its classic ‘90s sitcom Boy Meets World, several sites reported over the weekend.

TV Line first reported the news on Friday, noting that the series will be called Girl Meets World and will focus on Cory and Topanga’s pretween daughter. The characters, played by Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, were married by the time the original show ended in 2000. Sources for the site say that ABC is hoping to get Savage and Fishel to reprise their roles.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Boy Meets World executive producer Michael Jacobs is working on the series and casting has already started.

Boy Meets World ran for seven seasons from 1993 to 2000 and featured 158 episodes.

More recently, Savage has appeared on Bones, Without A Trace and Chuck. Fishel has been less active, with her last major film appearance coming in 2003’s National Lampoon’s Dorm Room Daze.

TMZ recently spoke to Lily Nicksay, who played Cory’s sister Morgan from 1993-1995. Although she was replaced by an older actress, she said, “I'd love to talk [to Disney] about being a part of it."

In other ABC news, the network is working with Juno writer Diablo Cody, reports Entertainment Weekly. Cody sold a pilot script for Alex + Amy, a series about a 22-year-old guy and a 32-year-old girl who are in love.
