After three seasons on Disney Channel spun off from "Boy Meets World" which ended in 2000, "Girl Meets World" will conclude in January 2017.
News about this has sprung, along with petitions to get the sui generic, kids series moved to continue on Netflix, or another television network such as Freeform (formerly ABC Family).
This was the ONLY show on "modern-day" Disney Channel which did not make me cringe. The ONLY series which triggered young people to think differently, and produce change throughout a community beginning with themselves. So much change has gone on through Disney Channel, as we know well. Disney's past was what we'd consider to be "woke", as it featured shows which were fearless in talking about issues which were and still are a concern about the United States such as "That's So Raven". "Girl Meets World" was that and more; and now it's gone.
"Girl Meets World" is honestly the only show on Disney Channel that I truly care about. It's like that one boy in high school that's got every single quality that all the girls look for in a high school boy: He's charming and sweet, he's funny and attractive, he's woke and intelligent, he's got a big heart and cares about a lot of important things that he finds significant in our growth as an entire human race. He has a way of mesmerizing you so that you no longer believe that you're in high school because of how perfect he is... and modern-day Disney Channel is the high school.
Brandon Katz, who writes for Forbes, says, "This isn't exactly a surprise as the show's audience shrank from a stellar 5.16 million viewers for the series premiere to an average of 1.5 million viewers in its third season. However, it does suggest that the industry's current obsession with revivals, sequels and spinoffs are not immune to poor ratings." It is true that there was a lot of buzz in the beginning caused by the excitement of "Boy Meets World" reviving on Disney Channel.
"Girl Meets Goodbye" will air on Disney Channel on Friday, January 20, 2017.
