It seems there may be life in the old girl yet. While Disney Channel has cancelled the Girl Meets World TV show after three installments, there is still a chance fans will get a fourth season, although not on either Disney Channel or Freeform.
The Girl Meets World creator Michael Jacobs told TV Line, “There are talks underway, but we’re at the very very beginning stages.” The Boy Meets World sequel series stars Rowan Blanchard, Sabrina Carpenter, Ben Savage, Peyton Meyer, August Maturo, Danielle Fishel, and Corey Fogelmanis.
Will There Be a Girl Meets World Season Four
Jacobs added, “And I can tell you it’s because of the audience’s reaction to the cancellation that there is interest in other places. For anyone in show business, if you ask them why they’re doing something and they say they’re doing it for themselves, they won’t sustain long. Those that answer ‘We’re doing it for the audience’ and mean it, they sustain.”
Why Disney Channel Cancelled Girl Meets World
It seems, according to a Deadline report, that Disney Channel‘s problem with the popular Girl Meets World TV series was its demographics. While major broadcast networks target the usually coveted 18-49 year old viewer demo, many cable channels service niche audiences.
Disney Channel’s target demo is Kids 6-14. In other words, companies advertising on the cable channel are looking for viewers in that age bracket. Despite a steady Live+same viewership in the 1.7-1.8 million range, the news outlet says, “Girl Meets World was the network’s #5 series in Kids 6-11 and #3 in Tweens 9-14 for 2016.”
Because Girl Meets World was a sequel series, it drew a lot of fans of the original sitcom, Boy Meets World. That show first ran on ABC from 1993 to 2000, so its fans are no longer kids. Consequently, Girl Meets World‘s built-in audience skews older than Disney Channel’s target demo.
Could Netflix Renew Girl Meets World for Season Four?
Deadline says that while Netflix has been approached about picking up Girl Meets World season four, it is not (yet?) in talks to do so. Still, it seems the streaming service might the show’s best hope for a fourth season pickup.
Since Netflix is not ad-supported, it cares about total subscribers, rather than viewer demographics. Fans, therefore, are currently conducting a #GirlMeetsNetflix social media campaign.

I want to see girl meets the world
I remember as a kid waiting on channel 2 TGIF series, don’t remember the other shows like I remember Boy Meets World. WhenFridays came me, my two siblings and mom and dad would sit and watch faithfully every Friday. Nowthati have my own child she loves the show and I think that it is a great contuation of Boy Meets World,the show speaks to all ages and that’s what I love about the show. Out of all Disney channels shows I really and truly loved living forward to Girl Meets World. My heart was crushed hearing that it was time… Read more »
This show is great for kids and adults alike. I loved the way they instilled serious life issues into the youth’s drama and showed the way to overcome it. I’m in my thirties and I enjoy watching it. I don’t have any kids right now but if I did I would have them watch this type of television….. Something truly educational. I do hope the show can continue elsewhere since Disney decided to do away with it
I too am very disappointed in the cancellation of Girl Meets World. One of the main reasons I even keep Dish package I have is so I have Disney for my child and myself. Unfortunately Disney is cancelling the good shows and putting on more STUPID cartoons. If this keeps up, I will save some money. Buh Bye Disney and Dish. PLEASE Reconsider!!!! #SaveGirlMeetsWorld
My entire family has enjoyed this show. We have 3 boys from 8 to 14 and they all enjoy it. Please find a way to continue it.
My life is incomplete without Girl Meets World. I am 17 and learn so many lessons from the show as I did in boy meets world. Hopefully Netflix picks the show back up, or even some other channel! #GirlMeetsNetflix
Disappointed Disney wouldn’t want to keep a show about family and friendship that weaves values and morals into each episode for the younger generations to learn from.
Yet again Disney Channel canceled another great show! Thier reason? Demographics! Disney, where do you get your numbers from? Not everyone reports on the shows or the channels they watch. I am in my early 50s and I loved boy meets world and when I heard there was going to be a spin-off on Disney channel, I decided to check it out. I found the show excellent. So I decided to see what other shows were on the Disney channel, I found several shows I liked and some I disliked! Though several of the shows have she same play just… Read more »
I am almost 50, I record every episode of Girl Meets World even if I’m at home watching knowing it will play over and over on the weekend
No offense but I think the person or company who decided to cancel girl meets world may not be the smartest kid on the block… I am 30 years old and I grew up watching boy meets world so when I found out there was a continuation story about their kids and family I had to watch it….I love it…I can relate more to it and having a daughter myself I relate to the parents as well..I can look at both views of a subject and not just a parents view. I really hope someone will pick it back up….I… Read more »
For me I think Girl Meets World is the best show on TV it’s a show for all ages and it should be available for everybody to see.
I think Disney Channel should put it on ABC, CBS or NBC this way it’s available for everybody to see and enjoy it. Do not end this show.
This was a very good show and it inspired me please it back on
