I never thought I’d say this while in my mid-20s, but I’m really looking forward to a Disney Channel show. Fans of the 90s sitcom Boy Meets World got a strong dose of nostalgia with the news that Disney was moving forward with a sequel series aptly titled Girl Meets World, and the show is shaping up to be a suitable companion to creator Michael Jacobs’ original series. Jacobs is spearheading GMW for Disney, and we already know that Ben Savage and Danielle Fischel are signed to reprise their roles as classic couple Cory and Topanga while we follow the adventures of their 13-year-old daughter, Riley.
Though it was initially unclear how many original castmembers might appear on the sequel series, Jacobs has now clarified the matter by simply stating that anyone who wants to come back is more than welcome. Hit the jump for more.

Enter Boy Meets World. If you spent any amount of time watching network television on Friday nights from 1993-2000, you may remember ABC’s comedy-drama series about a boy (Cory Matthews, played by actor Ben Savage) becoming acquainted with the harsh realities outlined above. For seven indelible seasons, Boy Meets World documented the ebb and flow of the grocer’s son and his immediate gang (which namely included Danielle Fishel as Cory’s soul-mate Topanga, Rider Strong as his best friend Shawn, Will Friedle as his brother Eric, and William Daniels as the near omnipresent Mr. Feeny) as they laughed, cried, learned, and inevitably faded into a Philadelphia backdrop.
