For most of us in college today, we grew up in the era of the 1990s. We remember it for the one-hit wonder music, bland, baggy clothing choices and most of all, the television shows. Shows that we thrived off of at young ages included All That, Friends, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Full House and of course, Boy Meets World.
There are probably few people who grew up during the ‘90s generation that don’t recall Boy Meets World. The show about a boy, Cory Mathews, trying to find his way through high school with his best friend Shawn and girlfriend Topanga, while hurdling over the obstacles that life throws at them.
For those who continually wish for the era of ‘90s television to grace the television screens once again, you may just be in luck. In late October, rumors began to circulate that the ever popular Boy Meets World was returning to television, but revamped to be Girl Meets World.
The spin off series would center on Cory and Topanga’s spunky teenage daughter Riley and her best friend Maya. Both of these roles have yet to be cast.
Just recently it was announced that the original Cory and Topanga, played by Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, will be returning to the newly adapted sitcom. It is said that Cory will be taking the role of the ever lovable Mr. Feeny by becoming the History teacher at the high school. No word yet on the other members of the original cast returning.
I’m going to be a father! Well, on TV at least. The “Boy Meets World” sequel is officially happening!

The series has not been officially picked up yet, but is in the works with Disney. The first episode is scheduled to be shot next February.
Original creator of Boy Meets World, Michael Jacobs, has returned to create the new spin off, but little is known about the reboot completely.
So this reboot could be a blessing for ‘90s fans or a complete overhaul of one of our most beloved shows. Either way, we must keep in mind that it won’t be intended for the die-hard ‘90s fans if it gets picked up, but for today’s youth. We all know that the sequel hardly ever amounts the original.
