Ben Savage To Return For Boy Meets World Spin Off: But Will Anyone Watch It?

Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel are to return for a spinoff of the best loved 90's ABC comedy Boy Meets World, about a Philadelphian who grows up from a young boy to a married man. 

After weeks of rumors, ABC has finally acknowledged that it is working on a pilot called 'Girls Meets World'. "I'm going to be a father! Well, on TV at least. The "Boy Meets World" sequel is officially happening," Ben Savage tweeted Monday. We're guessing he hasn't stopped jumping for joy for the past 24 hours, given that 2006's Car Babes represents his last notable role. Fischel confirmed her involvement in a lengthy blog post on her Tumblr page, writing, "First of all, let me say that you, the fans of Boy Meets World, have been awesome. That word is often used incorrectly by people, including myself, on a daily basis but you have truly been awe inspiring. You, yes, even YOU, are the reason that Girl Meets World WILL BE MADE. J" The pair will reprise their roles as Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence, though they're now parents of a 13-year-old daughter named Riley, the new protagonist of the new. A nationwide casting search is underway to fill that role.

The pilot is to be produced by Michael Jacobs, executive producer of Boy Meets World, though it's still in the development phase. Though fans of the original series will no doubt have raised a smile at the news this week, will anybody actually watch the series should it be commissioned? We predict healthy numbers for the premiere, and not much after that.
