Tonight, “Girl Meets World” is going to be airing its season 3 finale on the Disney Channel, and it should mark a chance for many longtime fans of the series to start to say goodbye to both this story and these characters.
Is the show ending too early? The answer seems to be a clear “yes,” and that is also something that creator Michael Jacobs agrees with strictly from a planning perspective. Speaking to TVLine, he made it clear that when the show was originally conceived, he had always expected that there would be at least one more year in order to tell this story:
“We signed up to do four years. Whatever Disney Channel’s business model is, we always tailored the show for four years. We wanted to basically do the seven years of Boy Meets World in four years of Girl Meets World. We had some really wonderful plans for the fourth season. Knowing there was a possibility that it could end, we came up with ‘Girl Meets Goodbye.’”
Given that the show is ending prematurely, it of course does make a certain degree of sense that many out there would spend some time trying to find the series an alternate home. Unfortunately, early indications are that this home is not going to be Netflix. TheWrap reportedly recently that the streaming giant will not be picking up the show, even though they do have the first two seasons available for viewing right now. This is a big blow to the show’s future, mostly because this was the home that made the most sense, and the one where it already has an audience. There are some other opportunities for it out there, but it’s a little early to know one way or another how interested some other parties are in the property.
