Created by Alex Hirsch, ‘Gravity Falls’ is an American animated series that was created for Disney. Its first season premiered on 16th June 2012 and the series has released two seasons to date. The second season was released three years later with the last episode on 15th February 2016. Fans are now wondering about the third season as there are no updates. On 8th August 2020, ‘Amphibia’ released an episode inspired by ‘Gravity Falls’ after which the show came back on-trend.
There has been no official announcement made from the production department’s side. Also, since there have been no updates, many are wondering that the show has been canceled. After season 2, Hirsch did not work on a new season at all. He said that he did not want to stretch the story and create unwanted episodes. He didn’t want people to lose interest in the show or Disney in general. As a result, he didn’t work on it. Through his Tumblr account, he announced that in season 2 the story was concluded and he didn’t want to disappoint anyone with a forced storyline.

What is the show about?
The plot of the series revolves around twins named Mabel and Dipper who go to a fictional city to spend their summers with Uncle Stan Pines. Stan runs a mystery shack. ‘Gravity Falls’ is a mysterious town and things are very strange. Both the kids start exploring new adventures and with new characters appearing, things start to get more complex. Alex mentioned that as a child he was inspired by ‘The Simpsons’ and wanted to create something similar to that. He understood that animated cartoons are not only for kids but can also target adults if written well.
After graduating from the California Institute of Arts, he was hired by Cartoon Network as a writer. He mentioned that he already had an idea about the series when he was in college and also created a short film with this concept as his project. The series was inspired by his personal experiences of growing up with his twin sister on how he imagined things as a child. The characters of the show were inspired by his own family and he elaborated and created the story to make it fun.
Is there a possibility of renewal for ‘Gravity Falls’?
We don’t know if a new season is possible or not, but a graphic novel titled ‘Gravity Falls: Lost Legends’ was announced which was later released on 24th July 2018. The strange supernatural storyline was surely loved by many and people still appreciate the characters in the show. The complete DVD collection of all the episodes are available in the market. In 2015, a video game named ‘Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets’ was also released. The show has a rating of 7.3/10 on Rotten Tomatoes and is a cartoon that adults can also give a watch.
