‘Girls Meets World’ Full Trailer and Premiere Date Revealed

Published 12 months ago by , Updated July 18th, 2014 at 9:56 am,

Following the release of a somewhat confusing teaser – clearly designed to serve as a shout-out to the many people who grew up watching Boy Meets World when they were younger – the upcoming Disney TV series Girl Meets World has now received a full-length trailer, teasing the various misadventures of Cory and Topanga’s tween daughter, Riley (played by relative newcomer Rowan Blanchard).

Boy Meets World alum Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel have reunited to play the parental versions of Cory and Topanga, while some of their former costars – like William Daniels (who plays Mr. Feeny) and Rider Strong (who portrays Shawn Hunter) – are confirmed to make appearances during the sequel series’ first season.

However, as the full trailer for Girl Meet World illustrates, this followup program is not focused on the adults, but Riley and her peers’ experience growing up – something that show creator Michael Jacobs (co-creator of Boy Meets World) made clear would be the case from the very beginning. Similarly, the show looks to very much have the same kind of squeaky-clean temperament and formulaic design (single-camera format, laugh track, etc.) that most original Disney Channel television shows have nowadays.

At the same time, though, some of the sit-com’s humor looks to be derived from Cory’s angst over his daughter becoming a young adult, as well as from Topanga deciding how best to guide Riley through her teen years (based on her mother’s own experiences). There could be enough of that to make Girl Meets World a simple, but also sweet and worthwhile series that more parents might willingly sit down to watch alongside their kids on a weekly basis – not just a “strictly for tweens and under” show, a la much of the Disney Channel’s original programming.

The executives over at the Disney Channel do, in fact, appear to be positioning Girl Meets World so that it might reel in a general family audience, as the show has been set to make its debut on June 27th this year at 9:45 p.m. ET (following the premiere of Zapped). In addition, the WATCH Disney Channel streaming platform will make the series premiere episodes available ahead of then, starting on May 21st.

Lastly, for those who’re interested in a bit of nostalgic viewing and/or the chance to introduce their kids to Boy Meets World, the Disney Channel will have a BMW marathon showing on June 12th.


Girl Meets World premieres on the Disney Channel on June 27th, 2014.

  1. I wonder, Does that start time imply that the episodes are only 15 min a piece? That would be an odd choice.

  2. I might be 29 years and do not have a child at the appropriate age to watch a show like this on the Disney Channel, but I will be watching this show out of some lost childhood memories from the 90′s that I am desperately clinging on too.

    Boy Meets World was honestly a great show in the 90′s for teenagers, and I really feel like I have to follow the adults on this new program out of that 90′s platform I grew up with at least, if anything out of respect for a great series that made me laugh every TGIF night on NICK.

    • Omg I hear ya! I Have been hearing about this spin-off sorta thing for like a year.. I can’t wait!!! I’m 31 and I loved Boy Meets World, TGIF those were the good old days!! =]

  3. Looks like standard Disney Bull Sh@t

  4. Oh God >.>! WTF, I may have to puke.

  5. Was going to check it out from time to time just to see who shows up from the original show but I probably won’t even bother. Looks pretty bad IMHO. Well, it’s not that it looks so bad but it is painfully obvious this show is not for me.

  6. This looks more like iCarly then a boy meets world sequel.
    Also, 9:45pm?? Thats a little late. 8 would have been a far better time slot.

  7. So is Farkle Minkus’s son?

    • Thats my guess.

  8. I’ll give it a good 6 episodes before it’s cancelled.

    • It won’t be cancelled, its just gonna be very Disney channel of today. I bet it does quite well, but disappoints everyone who was hoping for something more like Boy meets world.

      • Ye I agree will still give it a watch though as some one who watched Boy Meets World.

  9. Thanks for ruining another childhood classic, Disney.
