Good news for fans of Disney’s spinoff/sequel series “Girl Meets World,” the network has officially ordered a third season of the show. With Season 2 wrapping up in February of 2016, fans can expect more from the leading ladies as they enter an entirely new territory of adolescence: high school.
The series, which is an offshoot of creator Michael Jacobs’ very successful '90s sitcom “Boy Meets World,” takes place in New York City with the original series’ principal characters Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and Topanga Lawrence/Matthews (Danielle Fishel). While the show follows a group of youngsters more so than their formerly famous parents, the series has attracted an audience that’s both young and old during its brief time on air thus far.
“Michael Jacobs has one of the most authentic voices in television today,” Disney Channel’s Worldwide EVP of Programming, Adam Bonnett, said in a statement to TheWrap about the renewal. “He and the entire ‘Girl Meets World’ team will not only continue to entertain families but also help kids discover who they are and who they want to be in this world.”
Fortunately for audiences that are wise to the show’s current formula, things will get shaken up as the sequel/spinoff version of the show seeks to capture the same thing that made its predecessor so popular -- navigating change. The main characters, Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard) and Maya Hart (Sabrina Carpenter), will start Season 3 in uncharted waters after graduating middle school and will be moving on to the big, scary world of high school.
However, as TVLine notes, there’s a lot of ground to cover between now and when the girls finally end their eighth grade run in Season 2. Not the least of which will be figuring out what to do with the recently established love triangle between Riley, Lucas (Peyton Meyer) and Maya. The outlet notes that the conflict will be coming to a head in the upcoming Dec. 4 episode titled “Girl Meets the New Year.”
