The series is a sequel to the sitcom Boy Meets World, which aired on ABC's TGIF block from 1993 to 2000, for many of those years in the same time slot as Girl Meets World occupies. Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel, who played Cory and Topanga Matthews respectively, reprise their roles from Boy Meets World as members of the main cast; other members of the earlier show's cast also have recurring roles or cameo appearances.
The series follows Cory and Topanga Matthews' daughter, Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard), and her best friend, Maya Hart (Sabrina Carpenter), as they navigate the challenges of life as they start 7th grade. The show also features their classmates Lucas Friar (Peyton Meyer) and Farkle Minkus (Corey Fogelmanis). The series is set in New York City, where Cory and Topanga moved to in the Boy Meets World series finale.
