THIS IS NOT A DRILL, PEOPLE. WE HAVE SAVAGE AND FISHEL. I REPEAT, WE HAVE SAVAGE AND FISHEL.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel have officially signed on to reprise their roles as Cory Matthews and Topanga Lawrence in the red-hot Disney Channel pilot Girl Meets World. [TV Line]
And if that wasn’t enough to send me shooting straight off the planet like a damn rocketship, Danielle Fishel took to her Tumblr page to discuss the news, and said that she has already talked to other cast members about joining the show.
“I do not know how many BMW cast members will be returning for GMW, or how often they may appear if and/or when they do appear,” Fishel wrote.
“Making the decision to do the show involved more conversations than you can possible imagine,” she added, noting that she spoke with former co-stars Savage (Cory), Rider Strong (Shawn), Will Friedle (Eric), William Daniels (George Feeny) and creator/EP Michael Jacobs about whether or not she should reprise the role. “The first comment out of every person’s mouth was, ‘Let’s only do it if we think we can create something as special as we did with BMW.’” [THR]
Oh, and also this:
Anthony Tyler Quinn, who played Mr. Turner on “Boy Meets World,” told HuffPost TV he’d be interested in appearing on the new series. [HuffPo]
This is happening. This is really happening. There’s only one way this news could be any better. I think you all know what I’m getting at…
BRING BACK MINKUS.
