at . Comments

It started as a rumor, but it's quickly becoming a reality:

The Boy Meets World sequel - to be air on the Disney Channel; to be titled Girl Meets World; and to focus on Cory and Topanga's 13-year old daughter - is actively casting for new characters as we type.

According to the network casting notes, Riley Matthews is "an adorable girl on the cusp of whatever comes next in life, and wanting to rush into it head first." She's also described a loyal and full of a "bright spirit and eternal optimism."

Cory and Topanga will also have a 14-year old son named Elliot. We can also confirm that Cory will be the next Mr. Feeny, serving as his child's history teacher.

Finally, there's Maya, Riley's best friend who is outlined as "dark" and very different from her close pal. Having never met her dad, sources tell Zap2It she will look at Cory as a father figure.

Yes, the Boy is now a father in more ways than one. We feel very old - and we can't wait to watch!
