The new show is said to find Cory as a seventh grade history teacher, echoing qualities of William Daniels' Mr. Feeny on the original show. Married to Topanga, the pair have a 14-year-old Son, Elliot and a 13-year-old daughter, Riley Matthews. The latter part is the series' central protagonist and is now being cast with the following character description: "Indelible personality. An adorable girl on the cusp of whatever comes next in life, and wanting to rush into it head first. She is fiercely loyal to her friends, and spends most of her time juggling the obstacles that life throws her way... There is no obstacle in this girl's world that can dampen her bright spirit and eternal optimism."
