More than a decade after Boy Meets World ended its seven-season run on ABC, its sibling the Disney Channel is eying a sequel series. The channel has closed a deal with Boy Meets World co-creator/executive produced Michael Jacobs for the project, titled Girl Meets World, which is in early stages of development. It centers on the preteen daughter of Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel), who married on the original series, and tells the story from her point of view. According toTVLine, which broke the news, Disney Channel is trying to get Savage and Fishel to reprise their roles.
Rebooting old series by focusing on the offspring of characters from the original show has become popular recently with TNT’s Dallas and two comedies in development for next season, CBS’ Beverly Hills Cop, centered on the son of Axel Foley, and The Brady Bunch, about the son of Bobby Brady.
