This is a show about a girl. It’s her story, but it’s also the story of her world. And now that we know who she ends up with – and who that will end up meaning for the show – everything changes.
What happens to Shawn and Maya? What about Corey? What does this mean for Mr. Feeny? Can we trust anything we’ve watched before now to be accurate anymore? No way!
That’s why we’re here to answer your questions and help you see the new possibilities unfolding in front of us: The possibilities for Girl Meets World Season 2.
This is the story of Girl Meets World.
Let’s begin, shall we?
1. What will happen to Shawn Hunter’s love interest Maya Hart now that we know who she ends up with? – @liarliarsliarliarliarliar
I will let you in on a little secret: It doesn’t matter. If you think all of this means Shawn and Maya are over for good, then I am here to tell you that you’re wrong. They will figure out a way to make this work – the writers don’t want to lose either of these characters; their fanbases are enormous. They care about these people and they want to keep telling their stories.
@angelicafray: Are we going to see more of Maya and Shawn in Season 2?
Honestly, the only way we’re not going to see Shawn and Maya is if their fanbase starts a riot. They’re not going anywhere. Here’s what matters: They met at the same time, they grew up with each other, they had an unbreakable friendship – and now they’ve moved past that point in their lives where they need to be each other’s best friend. Now is the time for them to start figuring out what’s next together.
@lilylorine: Will Pop be able to play the role of a father figure to Riley if he and Maya end up together? – @thespiderlady
Yes, but at the end of the day, that’s going to be a lot harder for them than it is for Shawn and Maya. That’s why it seems like a better fit for Riley. He will always give Maya a home when she needs one because he’ll want her in his life. But when someone comes in who isn’t from where they grew up, things can get complicated. And this, for Maya, is something she’s never had before.
@cellyrabbit: What about the kids? Will they learn more about their parents’ relationships? – @Megan_Goes_4
The way I see it, Theodore (who is looking for answers on his own) and Riley (who seems to be more concerned about that first kiss than his parents’ love life) are better suited for this information than Riley’s best friends. And having grown up with Lucas next door, I think the girls will be more interested in finding out how their parents met than their boyfriends.
@thedoritabell: A variety of questions about “Girl Meets World” Season 2 are coming your way, but this one seems to be more of a concern for some fans. What’s going to happen with the show moving forward? Are you okay with the new cast? Are you okay with it continuing without Taylor Swift? – @TheBellaCast
I’ve seen all of your amazing questions already on Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook and I’ve thought about all of them long and hard – and yes, we’re all okay. Yes, we’re okay. We’re good. We’re good.
@thedoritabell: I am guessing that there are huge changes ahead for Maya and Shawn, but what of Corey and Jack? What is the introduction of an entirely new storyline all about?
The way I see it, this new relationship will be putting the focus back on the original cast of characters – who are also old enough to know better than to mess around with other people’s lives. But they will still do it anyway because they’re the same kids who messed up their friendship with Lucas (and then had to work through that) in the first place.
We’re also learning how to live in our world, and that means we’re going to make mistakes; the important thing is that we learn from them. If Maya and Shawn can figure out how to do that, then I think everyone else will be able to too.
@clippitydoo96: Will this change how they look back on their friendship with Lucas?
Yes. Maybe for Riley it’s not as much of a big deal since she was little when he left – but for Maya and Lucas, the nights they spent together talking about everything are now colored by this relationship. Everyone looks at their past differently now thanks to this – except for Corey, because he’s just happy his best friend is finally happy.
@TheBellaCast: What are you most excited about for Season 2? – @thegirlmeetsworldxoxo
I’m excited for the cast, but that’s only part of it. I’m excited for Riley and Lucas to continue exploring who they are and what they want out of life. I’m excited to see the crew return and see how all of this changes how we write and shoot the show. And I’m excited because we’re going to get to do something we’ve never done before on our show: change everything.
2. If the show had to get a new logo, what would it look like? – @hannahlouise
I know, right?! We get asked this question every time we do anything that involves something external, like Twitter or Instagram or Tumblr. So thank you for that! (And thanks to Hannah Louise too!) And yes, if we were in charge – which I know we’re not because I’m in charge here – we’d change everything. But in the meantime, I told my staff they can make one. The only thing is they can’t make it public yet because the network has to approve it first.
3. How would you convince people who didn’t like the Boy Meets World season to give Girl Meets World a chance? – @taymallisonn
If they didn’t like Boy Meets World, I would tell them that Girl Meets World is still very much about Cory and Topanga. It’s about where they are now in their lives, raising kids in the same town where they grew up. Same school. Same apartment building. Same everything. It will be so much fun to see how Cory and Topanga parent their children when Riley and Auggie are old enough to return home on their own for dinner or drinks or something with the gang.
Who does Lucas end up with on Girl Meets World?
I think we all know who he ends up with, and hopefully we’ll get to see it.
What about Shawn and Maya – do they end up together?
Yes. They do. They really do. And that’s not just me answering your question because I’m their biggest fan; I’m excited to work on the show and watch them figure out what this means for them moving forward!
@thespiderlady: Will we find out more about how Maya and Topanga met in Season 2? It is kind of a mystery how they met.
We won’t be but we will see some flashbacks to the past where we learn more about how Cory and Topanga became who they are today.
@moshboy: Is there anything you’d like to say to the fans? You gave us this amazing show, and we love everything about it! – @bexnalyn
Thank you! We wouldn’t be here without your support. And thank you for supporting this season too because I’m very excited about what we have coming up and I think you will be too! We can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been working on; we’re just as eager as you are.
Who does Lucas Friar pick?
Instead of finding out who Lucas Friar ends up with, I’m more interested in what happens when Riley find out about her parents, so I’m going to give the floor to the fans. Have you thought about where you see things headed? Here’s your chance to ask your questions. Ask us anything. (Or maybe you won’t.) We’ll get to as many of the questions as we can over the next few weeks.

Do Riley and Lucas break up in Girl meets goodbye?

Yes. I would love to see that happen. Auggie would too. And you just might too. Stay tuned!
