Is there really a chance Girl Meets World could be coming back for another season after all? It's the burning question fans of the beloved — although arguably short-lived — Disney Channel series want to know, since after the network canceled the show, the fandom rallied behind it. These fans have worked hard to make it known that Riley, Maya, Lucas, Farkle and the whole crew simply deserved more. And it looks like Sabrina Carpenter might have some insight that will have everyone freaking out. For a good reason, we promise.
The starlet was just recently in Japan, performing and promoting her second album EVOLution and while she was doing some interviews, of course GMW came up. Her time as Maya Hart was her first big introduction into the world and really catapulted her career, so is she fully ready to leave it all behind? TVGroove asked her what her thoughts are on the series possibly continuing somewhere else, since so many fans were disappointed with the cancelation news. Overall, she seemed hopeful.
"There's a chance for everything. I think stranger things have happened. It's so funny when you say that. 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. But we'll see what happens, I don't know," she said.
So let's break this down: Sabrina loves the fact that the fans are as passionate as they are when it comes to the show and how much it means to them. It's always nice to hear directly from the stars that their fans' efforts are being noticed and appreciated. Despite the fact that she's super busy right now being a pop star, Sabs is down to see what the fate of the series is and appears to be open to continuing Maya's journey if the chance comes up. Fans and the series' creator Michael Jacobs have all been campaigning for another network to pick up the show, but it's a comfort to know that a main cast member is interested in making more episodes. Michael once said he wasn't sure if everyone would want to keep going if they got the chance, but he doesn't see why it wouldn't work out.
"I believe everyone will be on board. But I have to say, there are practicalities to this. When something is canceled, that basically releases everyone to make their own decisions. But I think the experience of this particular show was such a good experience for this cast and this crew that — I can’t speak for everyone — but I think the inclination would be to stay together if we could," Michael said.
This sentiment seems to be true, since Sabrina spoke about how the series will always have a special place in her heart and she had the best time filming.
"Yeah of course, I grew up on the show. 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," she said.
Guess hope isn't for suckers after all.
