There's no room for a boy on "Girl Meets World," the Disney Channel's highly-anticipated "Boy Meets World" spinoff.

Actor Teo Halm tweeted Saturday that he would no longer be on the show, after "Disney decided it wouldn't work to have an older brother." Halm was slated to play Elliot Matthews, the older brother of the show's protagonist, Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard.)

"Girl Meets World" star Danielle Fishel, who is reprising her role as Topanga from the original series, tweeted Halm back a message of encouragement.

"Girl Meets World," which is scheduled to premiere in 2014, will center on Riley Matthews as she navigates the world with her best friend Maya (Sabrina Carpenter). "Boy Meets Word" originals Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga (Danielle Fishel) will return as Riley's parents.
