DISNEY CHANNEL ORDERS SECOND SEASON OF "GIRL MEETS WORLD," #1 SERIES AMONG KIDS AND TWEENS

Disney Channel has ordered a second season of the comedy series "Girl Meets World." It was announced today by Adam Bonnett, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. Since its June premiere, "Girl Meets World" has ranked as television's number one series among Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14. To date, it has generated 4.7 million views on the WATCH Disney Channel app for mobile devices. "Girl Meets World" was created by Michael Jacobs and April Kelly and is executive-produced by Jacobs. It stars Rowan Blanchard, Sabrina Carpenter, Ben Savage, Danielle Fishel, August Maturo, Peyton Meyer and Corey Fogelmanis. Production resumes in Los Angeles in November.

"The series swiftly became a favorite of kids and their parents, many of whom grew up with 'Boy Meets World,'" Bonnett said. "We're looking forward to watching Riley Matthews and Maya Hart make the world their own, as Cory and Topanga teach them life lessons along the way."

Season one introduces best friends Riley and Maya as they navigate the ups and downs of junior high; episodes include special appearances by several beloved characters from "Boy Meets World," including Mr. Feeney, who guest starred in the series premiere (played by William Daniels) and Minkus (actor Lee Norris) in an episode premiering Friday, August 15.

Last month, Disney Consumer Products debuted the D-Signed Girl Meets World Collection, a line of tween apparel inspired by the sitcom characters Riley and Maya. It is available exclusively at Kohl's stores nationwide and Kohl's.com/dsigned.

New episodes of "Girl Meets World" air FRIDAYS on Disney Channel. The series is a production of It's A Laugh Productions, Inc. and Michael Jacobs Productions and carries a TV-G parental guideline.

Disney Channel is a 24-hour kid-driven, family-inclusive television network that taps into the world of kids and families through original series and movies. Currently available on basic cable and satellite in nearly 97 million U.S. homes and to millions of other viewers on Disney Channels around the world, Disney Channel is part of the Disney/ABC Television Group.
