Rowan Blanchard Joins The Goldbergs in First Post-Girl Meets World Role

Rowan Blanchard, meet the 1980s.

Just over a month after Disney Channel announced the cancellation of Girl Meets World, its star has booked a guest spot on ABC’s The Goldbergs, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Blanchard will appear in at least one Season 4 episode as Aliza, the editor of William Penn Academy’s student-run sci-fi/fantasy magazine. Her debut is slated to air in late winter or early spring of 2017. New episodes of the ABC comedy air Wednesdays at 8/7c.

The actress also has several big-screen projects lined up, with roles in the sci-fi drama A World Away (2017) and Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time (2018).

As for the possibility of Girl Meets World being revived by another network or streaming service, there’s no news to report. When last TVLine spoke with series creator Michael Jacobs, he told us that “there are talks underway” to continue it elsewhere, but nothing has materialized.

    Very excited to see Rowan break out of her Girl Meets World role. This part in the Goldbergs seems right up her alley.

  2. Tom says:

    No I will not follow her to The Goldbergs. I’ll already be there when she shows up.

  3. Josie says:

  4. I’m so glad she’s doing something else for a change.

    I would follow her but don’t have to since I’ve already been watching that for years, so I’m glad to see Rowan doing this. Based on the description, I wonder if the character will be a possible new love interest for Adam.

    I love The Goldbergs and never miss an episode, but I’ll take a hard pass on this ep when it airs.

    No , the Goldberg’s is a brilliant classic TV show and the only one that brings me back to my childhood. Once they start to mess with the recipe and add actors like this it’s goodnight Joe. It will ruin the reputation of a great show, these actors can’t act, their shows are so bad i think it would be less painful to tounge onto a hot stove. Please as 38 year old male don’t ruin the only thing that makes me feel 12 again. Thank you
