Fans all over the world were devastated when news of Disney Channel cancelling "Girl Meets World" broke last week. Since then, fans have not stopped campaigning to get the series back — even if it means moving to another network or streaming service. And it looks like all of their hard work may just be paying off.
Petitions and campaigns have been started in order to revive the series, which stars Rowan Blanchard and Sabrina Carpenter as best friends Riley and Maya, respectively. The show has had a loyal and solid fan base ever since it first aired, and they are making sure to keep busy amid the uproar.
But good news may already be on the horizon as series creator Michael Jacobs revealed that there is hope to move "Girl Meets World" someplace else. "There are talks underway, but we're at the very very beginning stages," Jacobs told TVLine.
"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," he continued.
Since the announcement of the show's cancellation, fans have taken to social media to express their desire to have the show back in some form or another. Chief among these campaigns is one involving paper airplanes, wherein fans are asked to send three paper airplanes to three big media companies — Netflix, Hulu, and Disney Channel.
Jacobs pointed out that there wouldn't even be a campaign in the first place if there wasn't such a loyal fan following. And this type of fan base is exactly what networks want. However, since nothing has been officially confirmed yet, readers are advised to wait for further announcements.
