Netflix Is Not Picking Up ‘Girl Meets World’ (Exclusive)

Streaming platform will not air new episodes of recently canceled Disney Channel sitcom

One avenue for more “Girl Meets World” episodes has closed, as TheWrap has learned that Netflix will not be picking up the recently canceled Disney Channel sitcom for more episodes.

The “Boy Meets World” spinoff was canceled on Jan. 4, immediately sparking fan backlash and campaigns for the series, about Cory (Ben Savage) and Topanga’s (Danielle Fishel) daughter Riley (Rowan Blanchard) and her friends, to continue on another platform.

As fans mounted campaigns for Netflix or Hulu or another platform to pick up the show, showrunner Michael Jacobs admitted he doesn’t agree with the cancellation decision at the show’s current network and said that there is more story to tell.

“We are certainly having discussions, there are some interested platforms,” he said. “I don’t think ‘Girl should have been canceled. We signed to do four seasons. I thought we would be able to tell stories through four seasons. That’s the way we set it up. It was going to be a remarkable final year. But I understand, things end.”

There’s no word yet if Hulu or another platform may pick up the show though Netflix will not be its savior.

Disney Channel had no comment. A rep for Jacobs did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.

The series finale of “Girl Meets World” will air Friday at 6 p.m. ET on Disney Channel.
