On the latest episode of his show Literary Disco, Strong told his audience that "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."
The episode in question -- season 3's twenty-first and the third of three upcoming episodes set to resume on January 6, is titled "Girl Meets Goodbye."
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.
But after Strong's comments started to circulate online, Girl Meets World's writers and producers took to their official Twitter account to clarify that no decision had yet been made.
They returned to Twitter today to reverse that course.
"It is with incredible pride in our work and complete sadness that things end, that I report to this wonderful audience that our show is over. I just officially got the call, and would like to thank this audience for its incredible love and loyalty." they tweeted. "Please watch our January episodes. We leave you with three incredible souvenirs of a show we couldn't be more proud of. As I look back I can tell you with absolute certainty - We gave you our best."
