Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel teamed up this spring to reprise their roles as childhood sweethearts, now grown up with a young daughter of their own.
The show has now been picked up by impressed network executives at Disney, who have ordered a full series. Production is slated to begin in Los Angeles this summer.
In a statement, creator Michael Jacobs says, “I am grateful to everyone at Disney Channel for the opportunity to reach my favorite audience, which has always been kids. Girl Meets World is a new show for a new generation that will be rooted in the same kind of honest, comedic storytelling about coming of age and the importance of family and friendship that made Boy Meets World so popular.”
Girl Meets World, which stars 11-year-old Rowan Blanchard as Savage and Fishel’s daughter, is scheduled to premiere on the Disney Channel next year.
