Cue the Millennial nostalgia… perhaps a decade too early. After months of hype and rumors, the Boy Meets World spinoff/sequel entitled Girl Meets World has been picked up by the Disney Channel to debut sometime in 2014.

The series will reunite original stars Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel as Corey and Topanga. The characters are now married, and the show will follow their tween-aged daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and her best friend Maya (Sabrina Carpenter). But audiences will still see plenty of the original duo: Corey is now the junior high history teacher, and Topanga runs a popular after-school hang out.

Fan favorites Rider Strong, Will Friedle, and of course, Mr. Feeney himself William Daniels have all been spotted on the set as well.

In a statement, original series creator Michael Jacobs described Girl Meets World as “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.”

So what’s the Disney Channel’s plan – try to make a new kids show that young parents will want to watch too?

What do you think? Will you tune in for Girl Meets World?
