Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage in 1999. We can’t wait for a more current photo op!
The Twitterverse is buzzing with news of a “Boy Meets World” comeback, and every day new details are leaked to legions of fans waiting for a taste of nostalgia. The new series, “Girl Meets World,” centers around Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence’s 13-year-old daughter, Riley, and this week marks the start of the search for the starlet who will take on that role. Savage tweeted, “Big week… Time to go find myself a daughter!#GirlMeetsWorld.” His TV girlfriend-turned-wife joined in the enthusiasm adding, “Big day today! Joining @BenSavage in casting sessions to find our daughter! I’m so excited and can’t wait to meet the girls.”
The tween tasked with bringing hilarity and hijinks to a new generation should be a perfect blend of the iconic ’90s couple. Perhaps she’ll have a zen-like wisdom far beyond her years, like her mom. Or she could throw caution to the wind from time to time, like her pops–especially since she’ll have her very own Shawn Hunter, Maya, in tow.
With casting in such an early stage, now’s the perfect time catch up on “Boy Meets World” on MTV2 and remind yourself why you fell in love with Cory and Topanga in the first place–and to look for personality hints to help shape Riley!
