After shooting a pilot earlier this year for the highly-anticipated Boy Meets World follow-up, Girl Meets World, Disney Channel has officially announced that they will move forward with the show, which is now set to premiere sometime in 2014.

In addition to the announcement that they’re taking the pilot to series, Disney also released a new plot description as well as a new photo from the pilot (above), revealing a bit more about the series, which includes an “interesting” profession for one of John Adams High’s best and brightest, Topanga.

You can read the series description below:

Set in New York City, the new comedy series will tell the wonderfully funny, heartfelt stories that Boy Meets World is renowned for — only this time from a tween girl’s perspective — as the curious and bright 7th grader Riley and her quick-witted friend Maya (played by Sabrina Carpenter) embark on an unforgettable middle school experience.  But their plans for a carefree year will be adjusted slightly under the watchful eyes of Riley’s dad who’s also a faculty member — and their new History teacher — and Riley’s mom who owns a trendy after-school hangout that specializes in pudding.

Though it has been known for quite some time that the Boy Meets World follow-up will center on Cory and Topanga’s daughter Riley and her adventures with her Shawn-like friend Maya, the “tween girl’s perspective” line from the series description might be a bit off-putting for those still hoping for somewhat of a direct sequel to the original ABC series. However, the most interesting – and perhaps confusing – thing to come from Girl Meets World’s logline is Topanga’s profession, which puts her as the owner of a “trendy after-school hangout that specializes in pudding”, while Cory is stepping as the new Feeny for his daughter’s middle school.

Throughout the original series, Topanga was always positioned as the intellectual superior in Cory’s group of friends, so it’s a bit disconcerting to hear that she will essentially be playing the part of Ernie from Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, who owned the “Gym and Juice Bar” that provided an additional setting for all the characters to (somewhat) logically congregate. Given that Girl Meets World is a children series, the need for an additional setting outside of home and school is somewhat of a necessity. But still, even Power Rangers dumped the “Gym and Juice Bar” hook from the series long ago – and that made much more sense than a tween pudding hangout in NYC.

Of course, things can change with time, and it’s almost likely that Topanga’s profession will get “punched-up” along the way. After all, Feeny went from school teacher to principal to college professor during the course of Boy Meets World. And since Feeny will, in fact, appear in the premiere, there’s still more than enough reasons to be excited about the upcoming series. Even if you’re not a tween girl, or fan of special pudding shops, the story of Corey and Topanga is continuing and that, itself, is something that Boy Meets World fans shouldn’t miss.

  1. Okay first of all we have to remember Topanga had a very artistic, creative, alternative childhood. yes she was super intelligent and prided herself on that but one thing that is demonstrated time and time again on kids shows is that your potential gets split when your sharing yourself and life for another person. they probably didn’t want topanga to be a cold parent that spends her whole time in her home office working on the jamison case. they want her to be the pudding yoda. the one the kids trust and run to for life advice. everyone has more than one side and as shown in the original show they did make mention of Corys academic shortcomings and topangas overachievements but by the end of the series it was all about coming together and working together to navigate life. on Gless which is a show that was so highly rated in the introductory seasons that now off its own momentum the show is doing some kind of crazy new york plot thing and even though New directions is disbanded and Finn is no longer there and Rachel quit the role she prepared for her whole life (which is quite a screw you to the audience) people still watch the whole season in which she was supposed to be graduating and marrying finn after regionals the big thing she had to do was figure out if she wanted to compromise her dreams for love or not. she knew with another person in her life whos potential she would have to keep nurturing that the glamor of a broadway career would be fairly unrealistic just because of the solitary dedication others put in to it and she knew she would be distracted. I guess what I am saying is maybe what we should take from this is that true intellectuals do not have this oppourtunity to feel life with their heart because they are hell bent on moving up some ladder of importance in their profession of choice. I want someone to name one person thats not so concerned about appearence and their own well being in some intellectual profession to get ridiculas and live. not to mention there is like what atleast 12 years of life and activity we are not seeing we do not know what took place its fair to say she probably did not want to lose herself in her career. whatever occured I am happy they are making her the comforting matriarch in a way become much like Corys understanding comforting mother. another thing I am sure that although the contributer did not mean to offend with the middle class comment and it is apparent that he did the fact that so many of you put emphasis on that instead of the fact that we all have expectations for a show that kind of framed our childhood. I want atleast cameos from the whole main cast. (I MEAN EVERYBODY) but i highly doubt that will happen with contract negotiations and stuff they will probably just make mention of them. point is due to the fact that this is a sequel no matter what network is airing it I am expecting some disappointment although its minimal.
