I'm not surprised Disney Channel cancelled Girl Meets World because they usually announce renewals early and they didn't this time around. It's also a fact that they usually don't keep shows on air longer than 3-4 seasons for some unknown reason. Before That's So Raven, they cancelled shows after that 3 seasons. So, this isn't unusual and if you're doubtful, you can look it up.
It wasn't as good as Boy Meets World but it's definitely not the worse show. It was a decent children's show about growing up, tolerance, bullying, discrimination, body image, income inequality, feminism, Asperger's/Autism, identity, parental abandonment, but it wasn't the family sitcom with a broad like Boy Meets World. Being on Disney Channel did handicap it because they always had to appeal to 6-9 year-olds too.. you can't do that when your leads are in middle and high school and in their 30s. For whatever reason, some of the important storylines were underdeveloped and that definitely got under the skin of fans who are my age.
Most of the episodes that featured the cast of Boy Meets World and Cory and Topanga having the B story, were the best because they knew how to utilize the characters/cast and I'll always enjoy those. It's unfortunate because it could have been so much better if they had aired on Freeform, ABC or Netflix where they could appeal to the 90s kids like me and today's teens without worrying about pandering to children.
