America’s mid-90s sweethearts are back! Following the news that The Disney Channel is producing a sequel to the 90s teen hit Boy Meets World, TV Line is reporting that the original series’ co-stars, Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, have signed on to reprise their roles as Cory and Topanga for the new series.

On Monday, both Savage and Fishel confirmed the news online.

Earlier in the week, Screen Rant mined a casting notice for the series for clues on it’s plot and characters. The show, tentatively titled Girl Meets World, will apparently follow Riley, Cory and Topanga’s 13-year-old daughter. Paralleling the basic characters of the original, Riley has a tough-girl best friend named Maya, and an older sibling named Eliot.

Stepping into Mr. Feeney’s role as educator and moral authority will apparently be Cory himself, who is now a 7th grade teacher.

Both Savage and Fishel have had relatively quiet careers since the show ended in 2000. Savage graduated from Stanford and continued to act in guest roles on TV and in the theater; Fishel starred in several direct-to-DVD National Lampoon films, and hosted The Dish on The Style Network. (For what it’s worth, Fishel was also pretty good in a recent Funny Or Die video.)

What do you think? Are you excited for Girl Meets World?
