    If Disney decides to continue the series after this, Girl Meets World will be rebranded as a new show for the next season so Disney can dodge paying full union rates to their crew – most of the crews on their shows are working at deferred rates for s1 – 3. It’s a really despicable practice for a billion dollar company and you should do an investigative piece about this.
