This may be hard to believe, but it’s officially been six years since Girl Meets World premiered. Yep, the Disney Channel show first hit screens on June 27, 2014, and fans cannot believe how fast time has flown by! It seriously feels like just yesterday that viewers watching Rowan BlanchardSabrina CarpenterPeyton MeyerAugust MaturoCorey FogelmanisBen Savage and Danielle Fishel on their TV screens, and there’s not a day that goes by that they don’t miss it, TBH.

In honor of the anniversary, J-14 decided to investigate and we uncovered a ton of hidden behind-the-scenes secrets that fans probably didn’t know about the series! For example, fans may be shocked to learn that Rowan didn’t even want to be a part of the show at first! We almost had an entirely different Riley Matthews — could you imagine how different it would have been?  Oh, and some people may not have realized that Riley was supposed to have an older brother named Elliot played by Teo Halm, but the character was later dropped from the series. Yeah, there’s actually a lot that went down when the cameras stopped rolling.
