Girl Meets World is an American coming of age television sitcom. The series made its debut on June 27, 2014 on Disney Channel following the premiere of the Disney Channel Original Movie, Zapped, before assuming its normal 8:30–9:00 p.m. ET/PT time slot on Fridays, beginning July 11, 2014.[1][2][3]

The series is a sequel to the sitcom Boy Meets World, which aired on ABC in its TGIF block from 1993 to 2000. The original series centered on Cornelius "Cory" Matthews, including his growing relationship with Topanga Lawrence and their eventual marriage. Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, who portrayed Cory and Topanga, respectively, reprise their roles in Girl Meets World, which centers on the life of the couple's daughter, Riley Matthews. Her father has become a middle school teacher (and she happens to be one of his students), while her mother is a lawyer, who gains part ownership of an old world bakery in the first season episode "Girl Meets Popular". Other members of the earlier show's cast have either recurring roles or cameo appearances.

On August 6, 2014, Girl Meets World was renewed for a second season by Disney Channel.[4][5]

Premise[edit]

The series follows Cory and Topanga Matthews' daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and her best friend, Maya Hart (Sabrina Carpenter) as they navigate the challenges of life as they start 7th grade. The show also features their classmates Lucas Friar (Peyton Meyer) and Farkle (Corey Fogelmanis), and Riley's younger brother Auggie (August Maturo). The series is set in New York City where Cory and Topanga moved to in the Boy Meets World series finale.[6]

Development[edit]

In November 2012, it was reported that Disney Channel was in the early stages of development of a follow-up series titled Girl Meets World, which will center on Cory and Topanga's 12-year-old daughter Riley. Boy Meets World co-creator Michael Jacobs will develop the series and serve as its executive producer and showrunner. On November 26, 2012, it was confirmed by Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel that they would be reprising their roles as Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence-Matthews in the series.[11][12] In February 2013, it was announced that Michael Jacobs has reached out to all of the former Boy Meets World cast members to take part in the new show.[13]

On June 17, 2013, Disney Channel officially greenlit a series order for Girl Meets World, which began production that summer.[1][14] On January 23, 2014, the first-season order was increased from its initial 13-episode count[4] to 21, to make a full season.[15]

On May 2, 2014, a full trailer for Girl Meets World was released.[16] On May 21, the pilot episode became available as a preview to users of the various "Watch Disney Channel" mobile and television apps, which require TV Everywhere authentication to watch. Following the TV premiere of the pilot, the episode "Girl Meets Sneak Attack" was made available via the apps.[17] On June 13, the pilot was made available for free on iTunes.

On August 6, Disney Channel announced that the series would be renewed for a second season.[18] Production is set to begin November 2014, with the season premiering sometime in 2015.

Casting[edit]

Auditions began in mid-November 2012 for the lead roles of Riley Matthews, the daughter of Cory and Topanga; Maya, a witty friend of Riley's who has a troubled past; and Elliot, Riley's older brother. By the end of January 2013, Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter were cast as Riley and Maya, respectively.[19][20] Teo Halm was tapped for the role of Elliot in early March.[21]

Filming of the pilot began on March 20, 2013 and concluded on March 22, 2013.[citation needed] Rider Strong and Will Friedle made a surprise visit to the set, sparking rumors of a return, or at least a cameo appearance, in the upcoming series.[22] Maitland Ward also made a visit to the set and was asked about the return of her character, Rachel McGuire. Ward said, "I can't really share any show info, but it would be fun if the old gang got back together again!"[23]

On October 5, 2013, Teo Halm announced on Twitter that he was no longer involved with the series. A report by TVLine suggested the series was undergoing creative changes after the pilot.[24]

On March 12, 2014. it was announced that Lee Norris would reprise his role of Stuart Minkus.[25]

On March 18, 2014, it was announced that Rider Strong would reprise his role of Shawn Hunter for two episodes of the first season.[26]
