There is something incredibly painful about writing the words above for this “Girl Meets World” story. As someone who’s covered the show for years and seen what it means for so many people, the thought of it going away is rather heartbreaking.
Yet, the Disney Channel has already canceled the series, and while we’ve personally posted some ways that fans can fight to get it back on another network, there’s no guarantee of that. As a matter of fact, we haven’t heard much in the way of evidence that this is even happening.
While we hope that all of the fan campaigns continue, for now, the purpose of this article is to preview “Girl Meets Sweet Sixteen,” the last installment hitting the Disney Channel before the currently-planned series finale “Girl Meets Goodbye” a little bit later in the month.
Synopsis – “With Riley’s 16th birthday approaching, the kids contemplate the future and how rapidly their relationships will change in a few short years.”
There is a clear parallel to us between this episode and also “Girl Meets the Bay Window,” given that both of them are episodes airing near the end of their respective seasons that are in turn putting the majority of their focus on reflective, nostalgic, and emotional stories. The idea of this episode is that it is meant for Riley and the rest of the main characters to think about how far they’ve come, where they are going, and if they are the people that they want to be along the way for the journey. It’s likely going to be a tear-jerker, and with that in mind we recommend going ahead and keeping the box of tissues out both for this one and “Girl Meets Goodbye” to follow.
If there is some more news to report on when it comes to the future of the show, we’ll of course pass it on at the link here. For now, let us know in the comments what you want to see from the final episodes, or at the very least the last ones airing on the Disney Channel. (Photo: Disney Channel.)
