Girl Meets World Cancelled According to Season 3 Director

Girl Meets World has been quite the success story when it comes to relaunching a beloved franchise, but it seems the show might be coming to an end sooner than people expected.

Rider Strong, who reprises the role of Shawn Hunter in the series, also directed many of the upcoming episodes in season 3, which kicks off again on January 6th (via TV Line). On the latest episode of his show "Literary Disco", Strong said," We finished the third season of Girl Meets World — my brother and I were directing a lot of episodes and I acted in a couple — and the show ended."

That statement seems pretty straightforward, though it surprising as the show is viewed as a success and they are only entering their third season. Disney hasn't announced any cancellation as of yet either, though the season finale for season 3 is titled "Girl Meets Goodbye", so they are least teasing that possibility.

That episode, which hits the Disney Channel on January 20th, will bring just about every guest star back into the fold, and hopefully fans will know soon if that is indeed the show's swan song.

Girl Meets World stars Rowan Blanchard (Riley Matthews), Ben Savage (Cory Matthews), Danielle Fishel (Topanga Matthews), Sabrina Carpenter (Maya Hart), Peyton Meyer (Lucas Friar), August Maturo (Auggie Matthews), Corey Fogelmanis (Farkle Minkus), Amir Mitchell-Townes (Isaiah 'Zay' Babineaux), Uriah Shelton (Joshua Matthews), Rider Strong (Shawn Hunter), Cheryl Texiera (Katy Hart), Danny McNulty (Harvey Harley Keiner), William Daniels (George Feeny), Lee Noris (Stuart Minkus), Jade Holden (Classmate), Nicholas Jabonero (Student), Sarah Carpenter (Sarah), Ava Kolker (Ava Morgenstern), and Cecilia Balagot (Isadora Smackle).
