‘Girl Meets World’ Drops Brother

by Jennifer Rivera

It looks like this time around, there’s only room for one Matthews child.

The highly anticipated “Boy Meets World” spin-off, “Girl Meets World,” recently made a change to their cast, letting go of actor Teo Halm. The teen was set to play Elliot Matthews, Cory and Topanga’s son and older brother to the show’s titular girl, Riley (played by Rowan Blanchard).

Teo took to Twitter to break the news, writing, “So guys, Disney decided that it wouldn’t work to have an older brother on the show; I won’t be on Girl Meets World. Thank you to everyone.”

Though the actor won’t be part of the show when it debuts in 2014, he definitely left his mark on the cast. Shortly after Teo tweeted the news, Danielle Fishel, who will be reprising her role as Topanga, replied, “@TeoHalm Teo, you are an incredible talent and I adore you. You may still call me “mom.” :)”

Though no official date has been set for the “Girl Meets World” premiere, something tells us this show will be worth the wait. I mean, Mr. Feeny is coming back. Hello!?

Are you excited for “Girl Meets World”?
