Boy Meets World fans, meet the best news you’ll hear all day.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel have officially signed on to reprise their roles as Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence in the red-hot Disney Channel pilot Girl Meets World.

The potential sequel series (which TVLine first told you about earlier this month) picks up more than a decade after Boy Meets World ended its ABC run and finds Cory and Topanga happily married and raising their 13-year-old daughter, Riley (from whose point of view the story is told).

The pilot is still in the very early stages of development with Boy Meets World creator and executive producer Michael Jacobs at the helm.

A nationwide casting search is underway for the role of Riley.

I think the original show kind of fudged around with the characters' ages from season to season, so I won't be surprised if they're aged up again.

Yeah I'm pretty sure Morgan 2.0 came back older

Wait whhaatt? I don't remember that. Although most of the 'eras' blend to me. Middle school, all the same. High school, all the same. College, all the same.

in season 2 they started high school, but it was really the 7th grade. By season 3 they are in the 10th grade already, and in season 4, they are juniors, so they lost some grades in there. Eric started college in season 5 as a freshman, but by season 7 he's graduating.
