ABC News interviewed Ben and Rowan about Girl Meets World about how deep Girl Meets World will go like it’s predecessor, Boy Meets World.
So, if “Girl” has a long run like its predecessor, will this Disney version address adult themes like “Boy Mets World” did?
“At the end of the day we want to be the show that tells real life,” said 13-year-old Blanchard in a recent interview.
“If that time ever were to happen I think we would be the show that would do it. I don’t want to make any promises but (creator, showrunner) Michael (Jacobs) is very, very passionate about writing real life,” she said.
“We want to cover episode topics that kids deal with,” added Savage, “I will say that we’re covering topics about relationships and religion and family life and love and marriage and divorce and parenting so we’re really covering a wide array of issues that kids deal with.”
The second season rolls out more characters from “Boy Meets World” like Cory’s best friend Shawn (played by Rider Strong) and their beloved teacher Mr. Feeny, played by William Daniels, along with Will Friedle who played Cory’s older brother Eric.
Savage said season one was meant to establish the show but they’re now more comfortable mixing in past characters with new ones.
“I think it’s a wonderful thing that we’re able to kind of reintroduce these characters to a new audience while slowly letting our long-time viewers know what they’ve been up to. I think our audience appreciates that.”
