After Disney Channel decided to not renew the beloved series Girl Meets World for a fourth season, fans were simply devastated, as was the cast. The show has such a strong fandom and no one was ready to say goodbye so soon. But there was a glimmer a hope, since Michael Jacobs, the creator of the series and it's predecessor Boy Meets World, went on to explain he was doing the best he could to shop the show around to another network. Would Netflix, Hulu, or even Freeform be the savoir of this series that simply felt like it was cut too short? Well, we just got our answer and it's been confirmed that GMW will not be returning on any network.
Michael took to the official GMW writers Twitter account to reveal that the show would not continue.
I wasn't able to find a new venue for the show. I'm sorry. We brought our best and hope we made you think and feel. Until next time. Thanks.— Girl Meets Writers (@GMWWriters) May 3, 2017
OK, we need a minute.
But Michael went on to explain on Twitter that not only that he was grateful to all the fans who wrote in and showed their support, but he revealed what would've happened if season four did air.
Grateful to all who have written in support of the show. You are who we did it for. And now to keep a promise:— Girl Meets Writers (@GMWWriters) May 4, 2017
It obviously would've focused on the core group's friendship, showing that the fact that they have such a deep respect and understand of each other was what brought them together.
Season 4 would've shown that what drew Farkle, Lucas and Zay to Riley and Maya was the deep friendship and respect they had for each other.— Girl Meets Writers (@GMWWriters) May 4, 2017
And their relationship was the guide in how to meet the world. Especially our current world. Because to find love, friendship and respect— Girl Meets Writers (@GMWWriters) May 4, 2017
must be at the center of it. Cory and Topanga always knew that. So, as you all meet this world, we wish you friendship, respect and love.— Girl Meets Writers (@GMWWriters) May 4, 2017
And there was one couple on the show that was going to be together forever, for sure the Cory and Topanga of this series. And no, it's not Riley and Lucas or Maya and Josh, it was actually Auggie and Ava.
Oh, and Auggie and Ava were forever.— Girl Meets Writers (@GMWWriters) May 4, 2017
Michael went on to send a final tweet, ending on the same note Mr. Feeny did in the series finale of BMW, sharing the same life wisdom that still rings true today.
All of us at BMW and GMW have loved bringing you these stories. We hope we have taught you to dream, try and do good. Class dismissed.— Girl Meets Writers (@GMWWriters) May 4, 2017
And here's the scene we're talking about, you know, for reference.
THIS. IS. TOO. MUCH.
It's truly is the end of an era! It's the show that really catapulted so many of your fave young stars' careers, like Rowan Blanchard, Sabrina Carpenter, Corey Fogelmanis, Peyton Meyer and August Maturo, and as much as everyone would like to see Riley, Maya, Farkle, Lucas and the whole crew's life adventures, that chapter has closed. The series finale Girl Meets Goodbye did gives fan a satisfying conclusion, since it proved that no matter what, Riley and Maya's friendship would forever stand the test of time. There was a chance the Matthews family was going to leave New York City and move to London since Topanga got a new job offer, but she knew where her family belonged. Plus, Maya officially got adopted by her new step-dad Shawn Hunter, finally getting the family she deserved. It was the perfect ending.
Plenty of the show's stars had said they would be willing to come back if and when the opportunity came about, which gave fans even more hope things would continue at a new network, but they have all since moved on to new projects. Sabrina is currently on tour really focusing on being a pop star, Rowan has a reoccurring role on The Goldbergs, and Corey has a new movie coming soon, so you know this isn't the last time you'll be seeing your faves on screen. If anything, they're all just getting started.
