It hasn’t even hit the airwaves yet and already “Girl Meets World” is a huge hit in its inaugural season on the Disney Channel.

According to a report, Disney ordered an additional eight episodes of the program, bringing its initial run to a whopping 21 shows.

Star Ben Savage (who was also on the original ‘Boy Meets World’) tweeted, “We’ve been picked up for 8 more episodes. It’s a joy revisiting these characters and meeting the world as a dad.”

Slated to kick off this June, “Girl Meets World” takes place “a decade after ‘Boy Meets World.’ Cory and Topanga Matthews ( Danielle Fishel) are married and have two children. The younger child, a daughter named Riley, faces life lessons through her family, friends, and school, as her parents did when they were younger.”

"Girl Meets World" also stars Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter.
