As production on "Girl Meets World" continues, Disney Channel must really like what they're seeing. Danielle Fishel, one of the stars, says the series has been picked up for a full first season.

"Got the great news tonight that #GirlMeetsWorld was picked up for 8 more episodes -- a total of 21," she tweets. "Can't wait for everyone to see them all." The Twitter account associated with the show's writers' room echoed the announcement, adding, "Congratulations to everyone."

The series, a sequel to "Boy Meets World," stars Fishel, Ben Savage, Rowan Blanchard, August Maturo and Sabrina Carpenter. A premiere date has not been announced for the series, but it's expected later in 2014.
