The curtains may have closed on Girl Meets World, but Rowan Blanchard isn't saying goodbye to television. She may, however, be saying goodbye to Disney Channel. It was been reported that he actress will be making her very first post-GMW television appearance by guest starring on the ABC sitcom The Goldbergs.
Rowan will be playing the role of a character named Aliza, who is the student editor of William Penn Academy's sci-fi and fantasy magazine. As of now, it appears that Rowan will only be starring in one episode that is set to air in winter or spring of 2017 – but who knows what could happen? We can only hope that Rowan will knock the socks off the viewers, and the show will invite her back for more. Let's keep our finger's crossed!
Now just because Rowan is moving on with new projects doesn't mean she's necessarily leaving Disney Channel for good, but we wouldn't be surprised. After all, Rowan called out the network for not quite appreciating the capacity of what GMW did for its audience.
"Teens determine and influence all of this in general, and I hope and think our show reflects you for how you are: brave, opinionated, audacious, devoted, dynamic, loving, nurturing and powering. People, more than often adults who have forgotten their power, will tell you differently and I hope that is when you turn to our show, which is now your show. I will continue to fight to not be talked down to by the shows and books and movies that are aimed towards us. I am sorry that this channel is just not able to understand that."
Aside from her role in The Goldbergs, Rowan will also be starring in two upcoming movies – the 2017 adventure film A World Away and Disney's 2018 live-action adaption of the book A Wrinkle In Time.
As for her GMW fam, they've got some seriously excited things in the works as well. Sabrina Carpenter is busy focusing on her music career, while Corey Fogelmanis will be hitting the stage in a Hollywood production of the off-Broadway show Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead.
