Here’s What Would Have Happened If Girl Meets World Continued
Just one day after announcing that Girl Meets World will not be returning through an alternate platform, the Disney Channel sitcom’s creator took to Twitter to reveal what could have been.
Michael Jacobs had promised fans that he would reveal his plans for Season 4, should the show not be picked up — and on Thursday, he proved himself to be a man of his word.
“Season 4 would’ve shown that what drew Farkle, Lucas and Zay to Riley and Maya was the deep friendship and respect they had for each other,” he tweeted from the writers’ account. “And their relationship was the guide in how to meet the world. Especially our current world. Because to find love, friendship and respect must be at the center of it. Cory and Topanga always knew that. So, as you all meet this world, we wish you friendship, respect and love.”
Additionally, he confirmed that “Auggie and Ava were forever.” (As if there was any doubt!)
Jacobs concluded by saying, “All of us at [Boy Meets World] and GMW have loved bringing you these stories. We hope we have taught you to dream, try and do good. Class dismissed.” And with that, Jacobs has officially closed the book on his Cory Matthew’s 24-year-long saga.

Girl Meets World Is Officially Done!
Girl Meets World creator Michael Jacobs used the show’s writers’ Twitter account on Wednesday to confirm that, despite his best efforts, a new home has not been found for the canceled Disney Channel sitcom.
I wasn't able to find a new venue for the show. I'm sorry. We brought our best and hope we made you think and feel. Until next time. Thanks.

The show’s season-turned-series finale aired in January, culminating with the largest Boy Meets World reunion in GMW history; Shawn, Mr. Feeny and more fan-favorite characters — including both Morgans — returned to help the Matthews figure out if they should move to London. (Spoiler alert: They did not move to London.)
Guest Star Reveals Why He Thinks His Scene Was Cut From Girl Meets World Finale

This was my scene… with #LeeNoris who plays Minkus … I would have liked to of had my chance to say goodbye to all of the fans but #DisneyChannel took that away from me and that is something that will not easily be forgiven ‼️ #HuluSaveGMW #GirlMeetsGoodbye #HarleyKeiner 💔
And while Danny was on set, he recited the lines, giving fans a glimpse of what the convo would’ve sounded like.
Danny says he thinks the scene was taken out because he has been very active with the #SaveGMW campaign.
“I guess #DisneyChannel didn’t take to kindly to all the campaigning I did to try and #saveGMW emoji unicode: 1f494. They cut out the only scene I had in #GirlMeetsGoodbye,” he wrote on Instagram..

The series finale ‘Girl Meets Goodbye’ airs January 20 @ 6/5c on Disney Channel
Watch Preview For The Emotional Girl Meets World Finale
The series finale for Girl Meets World will air on Disney channel January 20 at 6/5c. The episode titled ‘Girl Meets Goodbye’ will feature the biggest reunion of Boy Meets World cast members. Filmed back in July, it was this episode that first started the rumors of the show’s cancellation. Those in the audience reported Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter were in tears as they embraced during the curtain call.
Talks Underway To Continue Girl Meets World
Girl Meets World creator Michael Jacobs says there are talks underway to continue the series after fans took to social media to try and save the show.
“There are talks underway, but we’re at the very very beginning stages,” series creator Michael Jacobs tells TVLine. “And I can tell you it’s because of the audience’s reaction to the cancellation that there is interest in other places. For anyone in show business, if you ask them why they’re doing something and they say they’re doing it for themselves, they won’t sustain long. Those that answer ‘We’re doing it for the audience’ and mean it, they sustain.”
Jacobs attributes outside “interest” to the fans’ paper airplane campaign, something he’s proud to say “they came up with by themselves.” He adds, “Networks want to do something to gather an audience. The fact that there is an audience who’s been so loyal says a lot.”
Pipers Picks TV: What Disney Did To Girl Meets World Isn’t New
Youth entertainment reporter and Youtube personality Piper Reese explains in a new video posted to the Pipers Picks TV Youtube Channel that Disney’s choice to cancel Girl Meets World is no different than what the network has done in the past.
Reese points to shows such as Lizzie McGuire which only ran for two seasons while Hannah Montana ran for four seasons. She goes on to say that while it was a shock that such a beloved series was canceled just after three seasons it really isn’t that uncommon for Disney.
On the bright side, Piper points to a number of new series coming to the network, Including the That’s So Raven sequel and a new series from the creator of Lizzie McGuire. You can watch the video above, she includes two classic clips from old interviews with GMW star Rowan Blanchard.
Disney Wouldn’t Allow The Show To Mature Says Girl Meets World Star
In a new interview on the podcast Kevin Pollak’s Chat Show, Rider Strong tells guest host Samm Levine (of Freaks & Geeks fame) that Disney Channel didn’t allow series creator Michael Jacobs to get quite as dramatic as he would’ve liked to on Girl Meets World.
“I think what Boy Meets World and Girl Meets World tapped into is that there’s actually a huge segment of that age group, you know… the target age group from 8 all the way up to 16ish, that is very melodramatic and that does see life as ‘It’s all fun,’ and then the rug gets pulled out from under you,” Strong explained, defending the melodrama that seeped into both sitcoms. “I think Michael [Jacobs], to his credit, really wrote well for that [age group], and he still does. We’ve had some very dramatic episodes [of Girl Meets World]. I don’t think as dramatic as Boy, mostly because we’re on Disney Channel and they won’t allow us to. I think had Michael had his way, Girl Meets World would have swung just as extreme.
“When you do a tonal shift like that — I think Boy Meets World missed the mark almost as often as it nailed the mark, honestly — for some people that tonal shift will never work,” Strong said.
As an example of something “more intense than Girl Meets World has ever done,” Strong referred to BMW’s infamous Season 4 episode, “Cult Fiction,” during which Shawn joined a cult, found God and Mr. Turner lapsed into a coma — all in the span of 22 minutes. (Though Turner was briefly mentioned during Season 5’s high school graduation episode, his fate wasn’t ultimately revealed until GMW Season 2.)
During the 90-plus-minute interview, Strong also revealed what props he took from the Boy Meets World set when it came to an end in 2000, and what he wishes he would have taken from the Girl Meets World set had he known the show was coming to an end. The series finale, “Girl Meets Goodbye,” airs on Jan. 20, and features nearly the entire Boy Meets World cast.

Sabrina Carpenter has posted an emotional message to fans following the announcement of ‘Girl Meets World’ being canceled by Disney Channel. Read it below:
“The last time I had in n out burger and didn’t eat it, I had just been cast in a show called girl meets world! Tonight I sit here and I can’t eat my in n out burger because life comes full circle,” Sabrina started off her note to fans. “We speak in the language of love, heartbreak, friendship, family, sadness, and laughter. Wherever we are in the world, whatever we believe in, whoever we love, we all speak that language.”
“We had the privilege of growing up in front of your eyes. The privilege of teaching the lessons we were learning ourselves and beyond that,” she continued. “To the family that was created on our set, between the cast and crew, thank you for giving us the ability to make mistakes and to grow. I felt so safe in that bay window. People thought it was weird that I was excited to go to work. People thought it was weird that we really did and still do love each other. That’s a rare entity, we hold that tight.”
“Thank you Disney for giving this show and these characters the chance to see the light of day. I know I feel very lucky to have given life to Maya hart.
MJ- without you I wouldn’t know most of what I do. I also probably would have never had 2 paint fights in my lifetime.
We live in an intricate world. We can be adversaries whilst being allies. To everyone that watched our show and felt something, thank you. To everyone that grew up watching Boy Meets World and decided to give our story for a new generation a chance, thank you.
And to the little girls reading this, You can do whatever you put your mind to.
You’re go meet the world now, and I think you’ll love it. ‘There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life.’ – Fellini”
