Season three of "Girl Meets World" ended last month, and the likelihood of having a fourth one may not be seen on the horizon.
With Disney Channel's cancellation of the coming-of-age television sitcom, reports have said that no network has expressed to take up the ball and continue the show thus far. In a story by The Wrap, online streaming giant Netflix has reportedly shut down the idea of taking Girl Meets World into their backyard. The decision was a response to the clamor of fans for other networks and platforms like Netflix and Hulu to air and continue the series.
As for Rowan Blanchard who played the role of protagonist Riley Matthews, a TV Line report confirmed that the young actress is set to appear on ABC's 80s-themed TV series "The Goldbergs," particularly on the final episode of its fourth season. She will reportedly play the role of "Aliza," the editor of the sci-fi magazine of William Penn Academy. Her appearance is scheduled sometime around late winter to early spring.
Meanwhile, Michael Jacobs, creator of the hit show, said in an interview with TV Line that talks for continuing the series are "underway," but they are still in the very early 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 said.
Jacobs, however, also expressed disappointment over Disney's decision to end the series after three successful seasons. "I don't think 'Girl' should have been canceled. We signed to do four seasons," Jacobs said. "I thought we would be able to tell stories through four seasons. That's the way we set it up. It was going to be a remarkable final year. But I understand, things end," he added.
The series finale proved to be a memorable one, with the cast of "Boy Meets World," the show's predecessor from the 1990's, making an epic appearance.
