A few days ago, an announcement dropped that a complete box set of ‘Boy Meets World” will be hitting shelves November 5.  Disney Channel has green lit and shot the pilot for the upcoming spin-off “Girl Meets World” where Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) are grown with children, and one of them, Riley (Rowan Blanchard), enters 7th grade and undergoes lots of teenage antics.

The pilot was shot back in March with Mr. Feeney (William Daniels) playing a role in the pilot.  No news has been announced if he’ll be a series regular.  Rider Strong (who played Cory’s best friend Shawn) and Will Friedle (who play Cory’s brother Eric) were spotted on the set, leading many to believe that they will either have a cameo or recurring roles on the show.

The synopsis reads as follows:

Set in New York City, the new comedy series will tell the wonderfully funny, heartfelt stories that Boy Meets World is renowned for — only this time from a tween girl’s perspective — as the curious and bright 7th grader Riley and her quick-witted friend Maya (played by Sabrina Carpenter) embark on an unforgettable middle school experience.  But their plans for a carefree year will be adjusted slightly under the watchful eyes of Riley’s dad who’s also a faculty member — and their new History teacher — and Riley’s mom who owns a trendy after-school hangout that specializes in pudding.

The show is set to premiere sometime in 2014 and will broadcast on the Disney Channel.
