It was a sad, sad weekend for would-be "Girl Meets World" star Teo Halm.

The Disney Channel has dropped Halm's older brother character from the forthcoming spin-off series, the actor revealed via Twitter on Saturday, stating:

Halm played Elliot Matthews - the son of "Boy Meets World" lovebirds Corey and Topanga Matthews (Ben Savage and Danielle Fishel) and the older brother of Riley and Louis (Rowan Blanchard and August Maturo) - in the show's pilot episode, which will now presumably be re-shot.

Attempting to soothe Halm's disappointment was Fishel, who responded to Halm's tweet with her own:

Replied Halm: 

"Girl Meets World" is set to debut sometime next year.

Are you sad to see Halm go from the "Girl Meets World" cast? Let us know in the comments.
