Disney Channel orders second season of 'Girl Meets World'by jmaloni
No. 1 series among kids and tweens
Disney Channel has ordered a second season of the comedy series "Girl Meets World." Since its June premiere, "Girl Meets World" has ranked as television's No. 1 series among Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14. To date, it has generated 4.7 million views on the WATCH Disney Channel app for mobile devices.
"Girl Meets World" was created by Michael Jacobs and April Kelly and is executive-produced by Jacobs. It stars Rowan Blanchard, Sabrina Carpenter, Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, August Maturo, Peyton Meyer and Corey Fogelmanis. Production resumes in Los Angeles in November.
"The series swiftly became a favorite of kids and their parents, many of whom grew up with 'Boy Meets World,' " Bonnett said. "We're looking forward to watching Riley Matthews and Maya Hart make the world their own, as Cory and Topanga teach them life lessons along the way."
Season one introduces best friends Riley and Maya as they navigate the ups and downs of junior high; episodes include special appearances by several beloved characters from "Boy Meets World," including Mr. Feeney, who guest starred in the series premiere (played by William Daniels) and Minkus (actor Lee Norris) in an episode premiering Friday, Aug. 15.
Last month, Disney Consumer Products debuted the D-Signed "Girl Meets World" Collection, a line of tween apparel inspired by Riley and Maya. It is available exclusively at Kohl's stores nationwide and www.Kohl's.com/dsigned.
New episodes of "Girl Meets World" air Fridays on Disney Channel. The series carries a TV-G parental guideline.
