Sabrina Carpenter Hopeful For ‘Girl Meets World’ Revival

Girl Meets World fans were absolutely crushed when news broke that Disney Channel would not be picking up the series for a fourth season. Even though Girl Meets World, a spin-off of the hit ’90s show, Boy Meets World, found itself a dedicated fanbase–from multiple generations–it was unable to stay on the air. And after months of speculation, the official Girl Meets World writer’s account announced the news of its cancellation in early January.

“It is with incredible pride in our work and complete sadness that things end, that I report to this wonderful audience that our show is over,” the account Tweeted.

“I just officially got the call, and would like to thank this audience for its incredible love and loyalty. Please watch our January episodes. We leave you with three incredible souvenirs of a show we couldn’t be more proud of. As I look back I can tell you with absolute certainty -We gave you our best.”

Disney Channel caps off the majority of its original programming at three seasons. When Girl Meets World was not given the exception, fans of the coming-of-age show took to social media with petitions for Disney and the producers, hoping that they would be able to change their minds.

And when their efforts eventually failed, they took it upon themselves to pitch the show to Netflix and other networks like Freeform.Those efforts, so far, have also been in vain, but the dedicated fans are still holding out hope that there is more in store for Riley and her friends.

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. 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. 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 gonna 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

It’s unclear if there will indeed ever be a Girl Meets World revival, but the fans will be glad to know that at least some of the cast also wants the show to continue. Turns out GMW star, Sabrina Carpenter is just as hopeful as some of her fans for a possible Girl Meets World revival. The 17-year-old actress, who played the role of the rebellious Maya Hart, spoke about Girl Meets World‘s conclusion, during a recent interview with TV Groove.

“I’m happy when people are upset about it ending. Because if they weren’t, and were happy about it, that’s a bad thing. So when they’re upset, that means we left something [people care about]. And I think that’s a really cool thing,” she explained.

When asked about the possibility of a Girl Meet’s World, revival, Carpenter seemed hopeful.

“There’s a chance for everything,” she said.

“I think stranger things have happened. Considering how sad the rest of the cast was when Girl Meets World ended, we think everyone else would be on board too.”

Sabrina Carpenter also spoke the impact that working on the show has had on her.

“Even though it was only three seasons, we worked on it for four years. So I think of it like family and I think it will always stick with me as a memory that I have of my childhood.”

For now, at least, there will be no further seasons of Girl Meets World. And while that may come as a disappointment to some of its fans, they at least can rest in the fact that the cast would be up for it if the opportunity presented itself.
