A new generation of teens is getting amped for the Disney's anticipated sequel, "Girl Meets World."

The show will center around the Cory and Topanga's 13-year-old daughter, Riley.

It was announced Tuesday that the couple's second child, Elliot, will be played by newcomer Teo Halm.

Halm will play alongside Rowan Blanchard as the junior-high-aged kids at the center of the Disney Channel sitcom.

Actor Ben Savage and actress Danielle Fishel will reprise their roles as the now parents of the two teenagers.

Savage shared his excitement with fans and tweeted about the news, "Can't believe I have a son... Welcome to the Matthews family @TeoHalm. #GMW."

Fishel also took to Twitter and on Tuesday posted, "I have an announcement to make. I have a gorgeous daughter (@rowblanchard) and a handsome son (@teohalm). @BenSavage and I love you both!! If having real life children is as hard as finding these two beauties (@rowblanchard &@teohalm) then I think I'm happy with being a TV mom. Ppl will be mad at me 4 saying this but whatevs. We worked so hard to find the perfect kids. We found them. I love them already. Get ready."

Production on the pilot begins this month and it has also been revealed that the matured Cory is now a junior-high teacher (a'la Mr. Feeny). The character seems to have followed in the footsteps of his mentor and neighbor, originally played by William Daniels.

There has been no confirmation whether Daniels or other members of the original series will be back in "Girl Meets World."

Fans are anxiously waiting to hear if Rider Strong or Will Friedle will return in their roles as Shawn and Eric, but Disney has not confirmed one way or another.

Strong, however, did make a statement after the spin-off's initial announcement saying, "'Boy Meets World' was a defining aspect of my life, and I cherish those seven years. So I am extremely happy for Ben and Danielle to be able to continue the story. At this point, I have no official involvement in 'Girl Meets World'."

The new series is expected to follow similar coming-of-age themes as its predecessor but with a modern twist.

If picked up, "Girl Meets World" will air during the 2013-2014 season.
