The world premiere of the highly anticipated "Girl Meets World" airs on Disney Channel Friday, June 27
ABC Family is celebrating all things Cory and Topanga with "Boy Meets World" mini-marathons, airing Monday through Friday from 7-8:30 a.m. and 4-6 p.m. all summer long, in anticipation of the premiere of Disney Channel's family comedy "Girl Meets World," Friday, June 27, at 9:45 p.m.
"Boy Meets World" ran on ABC from 1993-2000 and followed the lives of young Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), his friend Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong), and his girlfriend, Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel), as they juggled family, friends and school. The hit sitcom tackled such serious topics as broken families, peer pressure and bullying, while maintaining its clever sense of humor.
"Girl Meets World" picks up the story 14 years later, with Cory and Topanga now living in New York, married and raising quirky 5-year-old son, Auggie (August Maturo), and tween daughter, Riley (Rowan Blanchard). Riley and her best friend, Maya (Sabrina Carpenter), traverse the twists and turns of teenage years at Manhattan's John Quincy Adams Middle School, where Cory is their history teacher.
