Boy Meets World mini-marathons to lead into Girl Meets World premiere all month long
Exciting things are happening on ABC Family this month, with the return of ‘Pretty Little Liars’ this week and the premiere of ‘Girl Meets World’ in a few short weeks. The network announced that it will be celebrating all things Cory and Topanga with “Boy Meets World” mini marathons, airing Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM – 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM ET/PT all summer long, in anticipation of the premiere of Disney Channel’s family comedy “Girl Meets World,” Friday, June 27 at 9:45 PM ET/PT.
“Boy Meets World” ran on ABC from 1993-2000 and followed the lives of young Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), his friend Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong) and his girlfriend, Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel), as they juggled family, friends and school. The hit sitcom tackled such serious topics as broken families, peer pressure and bullying, while maintaining its clever sense of humor.
“Girl Meets World” picks up the story 14 years later, with Cory and Topanga now living in New York, married and raising quirky five-year-old son, Auggie (August Maturo), and tween daughter, Riley (Rowan Blanchard). Riley and her best friend, Maya (Sabrina Carpenter), traverse the twists and turns of teenage years at Manhattan’s John Quincy Adams Middle School, where Cory is their History teacher.
