TGIF, guys. Thank God It’s Finally official that the “Boy Meets World” sequel will hit TV screens.

The weird and wonderful news that the Disney Channel was planning a sequel to the mid-90s hit sitcom broke earlier this year. On Monday, the network confirmed that it’s ordered “Girl Meets World” to series, according to E! Online.

The show will focus on Riley, the daughter of the now-married Corey (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel). It will be set in New York City, where Corey will be a history teacher at Riley’s middle school and Topanga will own a cool afterschool pudding joint.

So it’s set in Brooklyn, presumably. That’s the only place in the world where a “cool afterschool pudding joint” could be remotely plausible.

In a programming hiccup, the Disney Channel recently was forced to pull an episode of “Jessie” that mocked a kid on a gluten-free diet following a fan outcry.

Gluten-free diets are both a health necessity for some serious disorders and a trendy way to be difficult at restaurants. Disney realized too late that they maybe shouldn’t expect children to make the distinction and quickly moved to kill the episode, which included a scene of people throwing pancakes at the gluten-free kid while he screams “Gluten!” and wipes his face, according to CBS News.
