“Instead of doing what we usually do which is kind of telling a couple of different spooky stories, we kind of did this [alternate] universe of what it would be like if we never met and how different we would all be,” Sabrina shared. “Maya would just be this punk chick that doesn’t give anybody any time and Riley is just over the moon, just like too happy for anyone’s comfort. It’s a really interesting episode, I’m excited for everyone to see it.”
Girl Meets World airs TONIGHT, Friday, October 14th @ 8PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
Girl Meets World : Of Terror 3 – Promo – Monstober
In a new interview with SheKnows.com, the 14-year-old actress and activist opened up about the future of the show, why the show works for all ages and that pesky “triangle”. Check it:
On the possible fourth season: “I know as much as you do. We are hoping for a Season 4, obviously, because we want to continue our story, and I feel like it’s an important story to tell. But as of right now, we just finished [filming] Season 3 and we’re still waiting on the word. But we do have more episodes coming out this year that air into early 2017, so we’re covered for a little bit.”
On the Riley-Lucas-Maya triangle that just wouldn’t end: “I think that’s the most important relationship on our show. People are always asking, ‘What do you ‘ship: Riley and Lucas or Maya and Lucas?’ And the entire time, the whole show has been about Riley and Maya’s friendship and how powerful it is and how it can withstand anything. We just used the triangle kind of as a metaphor for how Riley and Maya will never let a boy get between them, which I think is something we can really teach young girls because young girls are taught to cater to boys and to always be obsessed with them. I think our show definitely values sisterhood as its main theme.”
On why anyone, regardless of age, can relate to the show: “I think the way children’s shows present children is a reflection of how adults think of children. I think with our show, the staff thinks that children are super-intelligent and inquisitive and amazing, and I think that reflects on the writing. We don’t talk down to our audience; we talk to our audience. We know that these are issues that 12-year-olds know about — 12-year-olds know about STEM subjects and how there are girls lacking in that field, and they respect that we cover the topics.”
