“Girls Meets World” is cancelled. The confirmation came yesterday, 4th January 2017, at the end of only three seasons. Fans are not happy with the news with calls for another network to pick up the show being made.
Confirmation via twitter was made on Wednesday announcing that the Disney Channel TV series, which is a spinoff from the ‘90s “Boy Meets World”, would come to an end at the conclusion of season three. The future of the show had been in doubt since the end of last year however confirmation of the show’s fate has only now been made.
I just officially got the call, and would like to thank this audience for its incredible love and loyalty. Please watch our January episodes

Set a decade after “Boy Meets World” the show focuses on Cory and Topanga Matthews daughter, Riley, who learns life lessons just as both of her parents did when they were her age.
The show, which has ran since 2014, has a large fan base and they have unsurprisingly not been happy with the announcement with many fans taking to Twitter to voice their opinion. Calls for another network, such as Netflix, to pickup the show have been made by fans but as of yet no offers are being made.
It would not be the first time for a TV show to be picked up by another network as a result of fans petitioning for the show to continue. Other shows, such as “Nashville”, “The Game”, “Breaking In” and even “Futurama” to name a few. Of course, not all shows are picked up due to petitions, “Witches of East End” for example was never picked up despite the large following.
The finale episode, “Girl Meets Goodbye” will air at the end of the month on the Disney Channel, January 20th, with cast from the original “Boys Meet World” expected to make an appearance.
