Big news for Cory and Topanga!

Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel – who starred as the fictional couple on the '90s hit series Boy Meets World – are reuniting.

Both actors have officially signed on to reprise their roles on the Disney Channel pilot Girl Meets World, TVLine reports.

The potential new series would pick up more than 10 years after Boy Meets World left off (it aired from 1993-2000), with Cory and Topanga married and raising a 13-year-old daughter, Riley.



The story would be told from Riley's perspective, and that role has yet to be filled … a nationwide casting search is underway for Riley.

Michael Jacobs, the original series' creator, is on board for the sequel. And Fishel couldn't be more excited at the prospect.

"When the news leaked that GMW was in the making, literally days after I first heard about the project myself, Michael Jacobs and I had a conversation and we talked about how we were both so blown away by the reactions from all of you," she writes on her blog about fans of the series.

"We felt honored. We felt nostalgic. We felt touched by the excitement in your comments, tweets, Tumblr, and Facebook posts. But most of all, we felt inspired. We felt inspired to bring these characters back to life and to tell you more of their stories."
