Rowan Blanchard posted the sweetest goodbye to "Girl Meets World"
We were all really sad to hear that Girl Meets World was cancelled today, and Rowan Blanchard’s heartfelt goodbye to the show is making us even sadder.
Rowan, who starred as Riley Matthews (Cory and Topanga’s daughter!), wrote on her Twitter and Insta accounts about how grateful she was for the series creator, Michael Jacobs, her castmates, and their audience.
Disney’s Girl Meets World was a spinoff of the iconic ’90s and early ’00s Boy Meets World, which Michael co-created with April Kelly. Boy Meets World ended its run on television back in 2000 after seven seasons. Original cast members Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel also returned for Girl Meets World.
“I will never be able to put into words my gratitude for Michael Jacobs, the creator of our little world…Doing a show in general, specifically doing a show as a child into your teenhood, is so indescribably cosmic and scary but you do it because you love these people, because this has become your routine, because it is the closest you will get to being in real school…” the 15-year-old wrote.
“I am so honored to call you our audience. You allowed a dream to breathe. You have given us so much, and for that we genuinely will never be able to repay you. If we have ever become the reason for a friendship, or heightened one, then goodness, thank god, we did our job,” she continued. “Please continue to watch the show. To talk about it. I love this world we made. I love that it is now your world.”
Rowan also assured everyone that the audience wasn’t the reason for the show’s cancellation.
The show’s final episodes will air on January 13th and January 20th at 6 p.m. EST. We’re looking forward to watching the rest of the Girl Meets World season, and we wish the cast all the best!
