Disney teen series Girl Meets World has long ended, however, fans remain hugely interested in the lives of the cast of the series which ran from June 27, 2014, to January 20, 2017, when it was canceled after running for just 3 seasons. And why wouldn’t they? The cancelation of the series was hugely frowned upon and even sparked an online campaign where fans requested that Netflix pick up the program. But unfortunately, it never quite came to fruition as the curtains truly came down by May 2017 when the co-creator noted that he could not reach a favorable agreement with any network to continue the show.
Forbes, Bustle, Vogue and many other mainstream media outlets had nice things to say about the series, a spin-off of Boy Meets World which focused on the lives of young women and the things affecting them in a social media generation.
Girl Meets World might have ended, but it didn’t mean the end of the careers of her actors who have since gone on to pursue their careers. Meet the Girl Meets World Cast and find out what each of them is now up to. In no particular order, here goes the list.
