“Girl Meets World” gets two new characters

By Melissa Platero, CCNN Writer

Disney fans have been in a ruckus since Disney Channel announced the return of our favorite TV couple, Cory and Topanga, from the hit series “Boy Meets World.” With news that the reboot “Girl Meets World” is hitting TV screens in the summer of 2014, Disney is feeding our anticipation by giving us details on two of their newest characters! Peyton Meyer is set to play Tristan Friar (love interest to Cory and Topanga’s daughter), and five-year-old August Maturo will be playing their youngest son, Louis.

“Girl Meets World” will follow the teenage daughter of Cory and Topanga Matthews, Riley (played by Rowan Blanchard), and her best friend Maya (Sabrina Carpenter) as they deal with the horror story that is the 7th grade. The series is set in New York City, the place where Cory and Topanga moved in the final episode of Boy Meets World.

I don’t know about you, but Cory and Topanga set up my expectations for falling in love with my best friend when I was in the 7th grade. So, maybe I didn’t find love – and my best friend ended up being a punk – but at least I watched an amazing show in the process. “Girl Meets World” is coming to TV in the summer of 2014, and I have no doubts that it will be just as loved as the original.
