Rowan Blanchard (above, second from the right) was cast as Corey and Topanga’s daughter, upon who the show is based, earlier this year. She is the “Girl” in Girl Meets World. Also part of the cast is Sabrina Carpenter and Teo Halm, who plays Corey and Topanga’s son and the brother of Rowan’s character, Riley.

While Rider Strong and Will Friedle were seen hanging with the cast of the show around that time that the pilot was shot, it has yet to be confirmed whether or not they will be on the show. However, last week, fans got some exciting news about Shawn’s part.

On June 11, E! News spoke to Rider who confirmed that he is in talks to play a part in the series.

“I feel like I should show up at some point and finish the storyline,” Rider revealed. “We’ve been talking. I just want it to be done right. I really want it to be classy and good. I want it to be something that makes the fans proud.”

Ben has long wanted to reprise his role as Corey Matthews but recently told press that it took a while before the crew was truly ready, willing, and able.

“I think it was just a matter of making sure all of us were on the same page about what we were going to do in terms of making the show last another seven years, hopefully,” Ben told Rolling Stone shortly after the series was announced. “But it just seems a little poetic that we’re coming back 13 years later and it’s following our daughter’s character. I like that concept … and it’s kind of passing it off to the next generation.”

Danielle also address the news shortly after it was made public in the form of a blog post.

“Those years were among the most warm, hilarious, insightful, educational years of my life and I wouldn’t trade them for the world,” Danielle wrote. “Another thing I wouldn’t trade for anything is the integrity and the heart with which BMW was made. 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.”

    I really hope they do this right! BMW was an incredible series that dealt with real issues. The stuff on Disney channel is now slap stick comedy, gag jokes, etc. It’s really sad. I hope they do not make Corey & Topanga be the ditzy, clueless parents like in Good Luck Charlie, Jessie, etc because C & T were clever, funny, smart, interesting people!

    Disney better not ruin this like they ruin everything. I just wish they went with a different network.

    So Topanga who was the straight A perfect student who at the end of BMW was going to NYC to be a lawyer, now runs a pudding shop? I’m looking forward to the show but I hope they are not going to change Topanga that much. It is okay that Corey went from accountant to teacher (though not realistic by the age of the kids & years they were in college) but Topanga needs to be a strong role model & I would love to see her daughter get to go to Yale since she passed it up to marry Corey.

    Hopefully this is a start to bringing back REAL shows. Mr. Feaney was so well respected, intelligent and a good role model. Now teachers are depicted as crazed, vengeful and idiotic. The same with parents. The same with “problems and issues.” I understand trying to “grab the audience,” which would of course be children, but any show you watch now a days pretty much tells you to solve problems by lying about it until you get caught and THEN telling the truth. Or treating your teacher like they’re retarded. Man, what it would be like to have this show back again… and those times.
