While the creator of "Girl Meets World" remains hopeful that another platform will pick up the recently cancelled Disney Channel series, one potential new home has reportedly shut its doors to the show.
According to TheWrap, Netflix has declined to add the series to its roster, and will not be the one to make new episodes of the "Boy Meets World" spinoff. The streaming service had been floated as a potential good fit for the show, but alas, it looks like that plan will not pan out.
Fans of "Girl" have been vocal in their disagreement with Disney, which cancelled the series after three seasons, especially since creator Michael Jacobs has maintained that there was a deal in place to make four seasons, and the show had already planned out story lines for upcoming episodes. Jacobs -- who also created "Boy Meets World" -- had previously said that the show's creative team was shopping the series around to other interested platforms, though talks were still in the early stages.
In a new interview with TVLine, Jacobs didn't discuss the report about Netflix, but did say he was still optimistic that the series could still return elsewhere.
"Hopefully there's another venue out there that realizes there's an audience that loves this," Jacobs told TVLine. "There are many stories to tell. Maybe there's an incarnation where we can do this and get both the old audience and the new audience. The last thing we'd want to do is overstay our welcome, but I think we died prematurely here."
The final episode of "Girl Meets World" season three -- and potentially, the series finale -- airs tonight at 6 p.m. EST on the Disney Channel.
