Alex Hirsch On ‘Gravity Falls’: ‘Coming To An End. There Are Two More Episodes Left’
“Gravity Falls” creator Alex Hirsch has announced on his personal blog that the toon series is being wrapped up, having only two more episodes left.
After the two episodes, Hirsch said the toon series would be over.
“There’s no easy way to say it so I’m just going to say it: Gravity Falls is coming to an end,” Hirsch said at his personal blog on Tumblr.
Hirsch revealed that the two remaining episodes would be titled “Weirdmageddon: Escape from Reality” and an hour-long series finale “Weirdmaggedon III.”
Hirsch also clarified that the animated series was not being cancelled but rather it was his “100%” choice to finish it, which he said was his decision “a very long time ago.”
According to Hirsch, he designed the show to be a “finite series” – having a beginning, middle, and end. He wanted it to be a mystery show that had real answers, real climax, and real conclusions.
Alex Hirsch went on to say he and his group of writers made the decision before “Gravity Falls” resumed for Season 2. He was supposed to announce the ending but was reportedly restricted in hopes of a change of mind.
However, Hirsch said he never intended to make the animated show to go “on and on forever.”
Disney DX also confirmed the wrapping up of the show, saying they respect Hirsch’s decision to end it.
“Alex made the decision to conclude the story at this time, and while we’re disappointed we all won’t have the opportunity to explore more of the ‘Gravity Falls’ world, we respect his creative vision,” Disney DX said in a statement via Variety report.
There are mysteries in the animated series still left unsolved and Hirsch said this could be used for possible “Gravity Falls” projects in the future.
In his own FAQ, Alex Hrisch said continuing “Gravity Falls” to Season 3 without him is an “amazing idea,” but he said there are currently no plans on doing another season.
“I know that there will be fans who will be sad to see the Pines family go, but just because I’ve finished the story I wanted to tell doesn’t necessarily mean we will never see Dipper, Mabel, & Stan again,” Alex Hirsch said.
As for the air date of the finale, it is yet to be announced.
