The hour-long special episode of Girl Meets World was how the show said an early goodbye to its loyal fans. It may have been filmed months before. But it was clear with the reminiscing that the powers that be in Disney Channel know that Girl Meets World cancelled probably even before the cast knew about it.
The episode, World Meets Girl, became a visual thank-you to fans as they showed behind-the-scenes clips. They also showed the stars they obsessed over and the actors’ classrooms with the photos of Boy Meets World set.
Girl Meets World canceled is an emotional time
Aside from the behind-the-scenes clips, the one-hour became a virtual “eulogy” of some sorts. Bloopers, montages, and fan tributes filled the rest of the show. Capping off the decision of Girl Meets World canceled is the showing of the many empty seats and Sabrina Carpenter and Rowan Blanchard crying at the end.
It was purely an emotional time for everyone on the set, including the legion of fans that the show accumulated over the course of three seasons. It’s almost surprising that Disney Channel decided to air the hour-long episode. And it is because it clearly shows that Girl Meets World receives an incredible support. We also witnessed to how influential it has become to young girls.
Disney earlier announced that the show will be wrapped up after three seasons. The final episode will air on Jan. 20, Friday. Girl Meets World is the sequel to the series, Boy Meets World.
The sequel follows the life of Riley (Blanchard), the daughter of Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga Matthews (Danielle Fishel). Savage and Fishel both reprised their roles from the original show.
Fans not happy with show’s cancelation
It was clear that fans are not happy about the cancellation of the show. In fact, they took to Twitter to voice out their opinions against Disney’s decision to axe Girl Meets World. One Twitter user with the handle @starrrybrina said that canceling shows after three seasons is what Disney does to pay the actors less.
According to her, it happened with The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, Hannah Montana, The Jonas Brothers, and Liv and Maddie.
Hopefully for Disney, their decision for Girl Meets World canceled has nothing to do with any issue of paying the actors less.
