Fans may see more of Riley Matthews and her friends in Girl Meets World season 4.
Series creator Michael Jacobs has admitted how disappointed they were on Disney’s decision to cancel the show. However, he also revealed a good news – there are ongoing talks about a possible continuation of Girl Meets World season 4 in different network or platform.
“There are talks underway, but we’re at the very very beginning stages. And I can tell you it’s because of the audience’s reaction to the cancellation that there is interest in other places,” he told TVLine. Followers of Girl Meets World have already launched campaign for streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu to pick up the show.
The cancellation of Girl Meets World has been made official earlier this year. The series finale, titled Girl Meets Goodbye, is set to air on Jan. 20.
Jacobs said he does not agree with the decision of Disney not to renew the show. “I don’t think ‘Girl should have been canceled. We signed to do four seasons. I thought we would be able to tell stories through four seasons,” he told TheWrap.
Cast members Rowan Blanchard (Riley) and Sabrina Carpenter (Maya Hart) have earlier shared their thoughts about the cancellation and paid tribute to the show and their fans. Jacobs also believe that the whole cast will be on board when Girl Meets World season 4 moved to another network.
Why Disney Cancelled Girl Meets World
Disney Channel told TheWrap that the decision not to give the fourth season option to the show was made after careful consideration of several factors. The network said that they are proud to have presented a generation of kids and families in more than 70 episodes and a heartfelt finale with characters from the original series Boy Meets World.
It could be noticed that the show’s viewership ratings have dropped this season. The series garnered an impressive 5.16 million viewers on its series premiere in 2014. However, the numbers shrunk to an average of 1.5 million viewers in its season 3 debut.
Girl Meets World is a sequel to the hit sitcom Boy Meets World. The show aired on ABC from 1993 to 2000. Original cast members Ben Savage (Cory Matthews) and Danielle Fishel (Topanga Lawrence) reprised their roles in the new show. The series follows the life of Cory and Topanga’s daughter, Riley. Throughout the run of Girl Meets World, other cast members of the prequel have either had recurring roles or cameo appearances.
Girl Meets World season 3 airs every Friday at 6 P.M. on Disney Channel.
