Topanga Lawrence herself assures fans they can anticipate ‘familiar faces’ on the new series.
Danielle Fishel has remained fairly silent on the topic of Girl Meets World, but now that she and Ben Savage have officially signed on to star on the Boy Meets World sequel series, she’s got a lot to get off her chest — including what long-time fans can expect from the new Disney Channel series.
“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,” she writes in a new Tumblr post. “I am going to do my best to not speak for others … but because I have known Michael Jacobs, Ben Savage, Rider Strong, Will Friedle, and Bill Daniels for 19 years, I know we share many of the same feelings regarding the 7 wonderful years we spent making BMW. … I promise with the entirety of my heart that we will make GMW with the same honesty, innocence, and intelligence that you learned to expect from BMW.”
She also wants to clarify that Girl Meets World isn’t merely going to pick up where Boy Meets World left off. Fans need to understand that it’s a new series, starting essentially from scratch.
“It will have familiar faces, familiar themes, and familiar messages,” Danielle writes. “It will also have new faces, new themes, and new messages. BMW never spoke down to the audience and we are going to do our best to never do that with GMW. But please keep in mind that this there will be episode 1, of season 1, of a brand new show. We started at the same place with BMW but we evolved and we evolved quickly. For those of you who knew and loved BMW, please allow this show to evolve as well. Stick with us. Give us a chance.”
I think I speak for Boy Meets World fans everywhere when I say this new series can’t start soon enough, and we’ll all give it a chance! Even though it’s on Disney Channel, I have high hopes that it will be enjoyable for fans of all ages.
