Girl Meets World (Disney)
Premieres June 27
The average age of the Disney Channel is going to spike a few decades come June, when twenty- and thirtysomethings who came of age alongside Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence while watching the vintage TGIF staple Boy Meets World flock to the kids’ channel to watch the launch of its spinoff, Girl Meets World. The initial appeal of the new series, premiering 14 years after the original (which ran from 1993-2000) aired its last episode, is the reunion of the show’s cast (Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, and William Daniels as Mr. Feeny are all back, with other original cast members making cameos), but the show’s success will rest on the spunky-ness of young Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard). The spinoff’s narrative will be told through the eyes of Riley, Cory, and Topanga’s oldest daughter. Yep, Cory and Topanga are happily married with a family of their own. We’re old.
