Fans of Disney Channel’s animated series “Gravity Falls” may be disheartened to find out that the adventures of twins Mabel and Dipper Pines are set to end after the current run of season 2.
According to Variety, what may have caused the show to be finished is that the creator Alex Hirsch is working on a new project with Fox and 20th Century Fox TV. Although details of the show are still in the dark, he teased to the news outlet that, “I’m cooking up some brand new weirdness.”
Recently, he also took it to Twitter to address the issue saying, “The rumors are true! I’m cooking up some new strange projects for some new strange places. 2016 is gonna be a crazy year buddies.”
Back in November, he also confirmed on a lengthy blog post titled “Goodbye Gravity Falls” that the show which reportedly has garnered an avid following of viewers will air its two-parter final episode, “The first thing to know is that the show isn’t being cancelled- it’s being finished. This is 100% my choice, and its something I decided on a very long time ago. I always designed Gravity Falls to be a finite series about one epic summer- a series with a beginning, middle, and end.”
“But I wanted Gravity Falls to have a mystery that had a real answer, an adventure that had a real climax, and an ending that had a real conclusion for the characters I care so much about,” he added.
He also gave thanks to Disney for being supportive of the project he dubbed as a “pretty big experiment,” and the fandom for cherishing the storyline for all the 40 installments.
Reports claimed that Hirsch has ben pursued by several networks after the success of “Gravity Falls” but he seems to be more inclined to work in Fox as the network has a history of successful animated series such as “Family Guy,” “American Dad,” “Bob’s Burgers” and “The Simpsons.”
Its finale titled “Weirdmageddon II: Escape from Reality” and “Weirdmageddon III” are slated to air on Feb. 15.
