It’s a testament to the show’s lingering popularity that it is coming back, 13-years later, as the Disney Channel offering ‘Girl Meets World,’ which will focus on Corey and his wife-turned girlfriend Topanga (Danielle Fishel) and their children.
Then: Fishel was originally just supposed to be a minor character on ‘Boy Meets World,’ but her spunk and chemistry with Ben Savage led to producers upping her role to series regular.
Prior to ‘BMW,’ Fishel did commercials and voiceover work before scoring a two-episode stint as Jennifer on ‘Full House.’ Now: Since ‘Boy Meet World,’ Fishel was the host of ‘The Dish’ and appeared as a special correspondent on ‘The Tyra Banks Show.’ (There was also the period where she dated Lance Bass, even attending prom with the now openly gay *NSYNC member.) Her profile has been raised in recent years thanks to being spokeswoman for the Nutrisystem Diet and posing for Maxim.
Boy Meets World is an American television sitcom that chronicles the coming-of-age events and everyday life-lessons of Cory Matthews (portrayed by Ben Savage).
The show follows Cory and his friends and family through seven seasons, from his middle school days as a pre-pubescent child to his life in college as a married man.
Their daughter, Riley, faces life lessons through her family, friends, and school--where her father is her history teacher--as her parents did when they were younger.
A 16 year old high school student Sabrina Spellman finds out she's a witch.
Then: Inspired by his older brother Fred Savage (‘The Wonder Years‘), Ben got into acting at a young age and was soon able to raise to his sibling’s level by snagging the lead role of Cory Matthews in ‘Boy Meets World.’ Previously he had played a recurring character on ‘Dear John’ and made an appearance in the Fred Savage movie ‘Little Monsters.’ Now: When Savage returns as Cory in ‘Girl Meets World’ it will be his biggest role since ‘Boy Meets World’ ended in 2000.
He has popped up as a guest star on shows like ‘Bones’ and ‘Chuck’ in the interim.
Meanwhile, Cory has his heart set on asking Topanga out, but he cannot get the nerve to do so.
Unfortunately, his reluctance costs him when Shawn informs him that he has already asked her out.
The third season of the television comedy series Boy Meets World aired between September 22, 1995 and May 17, 1996, on ABC in the United States.
