Disney Cancels ‘Girl Meets World’ After Three Seasons
Just one week after series star Rider Strong dropped the ball on his podcast, Disney has made it official: Girl Meets World has been canceled after three seasons on the network.
“Disney Channel will present the series finale of “Girl Meets World” on FRIDAY, JANUARY 20 (6:00 p.m. EST). In the episode, “Girl Meets Goodbye,” the Matthews family contemplates a life-changing decision,” reads the official statement from the network. “We are proud that for over 70 episodes, Michael Jacobs, April Kelly and the talented creative team, cast and crew entertained viewers with an authentic and heartfelt look at navigating adolescence.”
No word on if the series will be shopped around to another network. I’m not sure if FreeForm, the network that plenty of fans have suggested as a potential new home for the show, will be the right fit, considering FreeForm is also owned by Disney. But I could see an online network perhaps taking a chance on the show, whether it’s Netflix, Hulu or Amazon. Then again, if the third season finale works really well as a conclusive series finale, it might be best just to let Girl Meets World go out on a high note.
