‘Boy Meets World’ Cast Wants Philly Suburb to Claim the Family Sitcom!
Yes!!! I agree with this! I had no idea the show was supposed to be set in Philly, and the cast wants to change that for the new crop of people who are just watching it now. Thanks to their new podcast. the cast WANTS a Philly suburb to claim it! Which town do you think it should be?
Cory Matthews grew up in a Philadelphia suburb in the ABC sitcom Boy Meets World, but the show never explicitly stated which suburb. Showbiz Cheat Sheet spoke with Danielle Fishel, Will Friedle, and Rider Strong about where the show was set, but they didn’t have a definitive answer.
“When you’re doing a show for younger people, you want kids from all across the country to be able to turn on the TV and imagine they live wherever those people live,” Friedle said. “Boy Meets World was very Anytown USA and other than occasionally putting Cory in a Phillies hat … or the Sixers, it was never Philly centric.”
“If there’s a town in Pennsylvania that’s like, ‘This is now the Boy Meets World town,’ we will come and cut the ribbon,” Friedle quipped. “We’ll come take the keys to the city,” Strong added.
