Cory & Topanga Are Coming Back, 90s Kids Rejoice!

Boy Meets World

Before watching all of these romantic comedies or being consumed by Bella and Edward of Twilight fame, we had one fiction relationship that we rooted for and emotionally invested in as if we were a part of it. Cory and Topanga, the couple developed over 7 seasons of Boy Meets World,is the definition of romance in the eyes of 90s kids and Disney lovers across the globe. They are returning, fulfilling one of my top three prayers of returns from that decade (still have fingers crossed for Legends of the Hidden Temple and Supermarket Sweep revivals).

Danielle Fishel and Ben Savage officially signed on to the series, which will be called Girl Meets World. It’ll cover the married couple parenting their 13-year-old daughter. This is good news. No, this is great news. I know there are many skeptics who are treating this comeback like a fragile, old collectors item that they don’t want anyone to touch because they fear it’ll get damaged. I understand that, really I do – but this is CORY AND TOPANGA we’re talking about here, I’m not seeing anyway that it’s not, at the very least, better than the other junk being aired on Disney.

The only legitimate downside of this is that it magnifies our rapid aging. Copanga (admit it, you love that) being old enough to have a teenage daughter means we’ve come a long way from watching Boy Meets World on ABC’s TGIF back in ’95. Let’s embrace this. Sure it could be bad but so what? If it’s the worst thing ever, we can just pretend it didn’t happen… Like the new Figure It Out on Nickelodeon. Folks don’t even acknowledge that mess’ existence.

Be happy! Are you happy? This feels like when you have potential career news you’re excited to tell your Mom about and you hope that she’s ecstatic, but you know there’s a chance she’ll be like, “Meh, that sounds like a scam but I guess if you want to do that with your life…” – crushing every ounce of joy and excitement you had in a matter of seconds. Don’t do that to me – be as excited as I am. Let’s rekindle our crush on Topanga and hope that Feeny (Feeee-he-he-heenay) returns for a cameo or ten. TC Mark

    Reblogged this on a mismatched masterpiece. and commented:
    I’m still not entirely sure about this. I want to be optimistic, because this show was such a huge part of my life when I was younger, and even recently when I decided to rewatch the series. There were a lot of lessons presented, and a lot of love for the characters. I like that Ben and Danielle are coming back, but it makes me even more skeptical. Without Will Friedle or Rider Strong (they are not confirmed either way), I’m not sure if I want to watch something that has half of the previous cast. And I’m always unsure about sequels, because it’s so difficult for me to watch the sequel as a separate entity from its predecessor. So, yes, in theory, I think a new series is an interesting idea, but at the same time – I’m not quite sure how it’ll play out.
