'Girl Meets World' Season Expanded To 21 Episodes

In a very encouraging sign for all the fans waiting anxiously for the premiere of "Girl Meets World" on Disney Channel, the network has already ordered an additional eight episodes, bringing its Season 1 total to 21 episodes. Considering the "Boy Meets World" sequel series hasn't even premiered yet, that's pretty encouraging. In fact, all we know so far is that it's coming sometime in 2014.

Danielle Fishel, who's reprising her "Boy Meets World" role alongside Ben Savage, broke the news via Twitter. "Can't wait for everyone to see them all," she wrote. This may be the first Disney Channel original series that has as many parents excited about it as it does kids.

In the sequel series, Cory and Topanga are married and their daughter takes over the central narrative. But that won't stop millions of "BMW" fans from tuning in. After all, many of those original "BMW" fans -- it aired from 1993 to 2000 on ABC -- are parents themselves now. They'll be able to relate to their favorite couple all grown up while the kids are laughing along with their daughter, Riley.
