It’s official ― Cory and Topanga have signed on for Girl Meets World!

Back when we first got word that a Boy Meets World sequel was happening, it wasn’t clear if the original star Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel would sign on for the Disney Channel series.

Of course, it wouldn’t have made much sense to cast different actors in those roles ― then it would’ve just been a totally new show with nothing but character names in common with the original ABC sitcom.

Fortunately, both actors are game to reprise the roles that made them stars (and the only roles either of them is known for, really). Cory has grown up to be a history teacher just like Mr. Feeny. The show will follow the misadventures of their daughter Riley Matthews and her “dark and edgy” friend Maya.

Casting is still underway for the title role, and it remains to be seen whether other Boy Meets World cast members will appear as regulars, recurring roles, or not at all.
