The quirky Disney XD series Gravity Falls will end with a one-hour series finale that will air sometime in the next few months.
“The first thing to know is that the show isn’t being cancelled,” the frequently-flanneled series creator (and noted Cartoon Brew fan) Alex Hirsch wrote on his Tumblr yesterday. “It’s being finished. This is 100% my choice, and it[’]s 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. There are so many shows that go on endlessly until they lose their original spark, or mysteries that are cancelled before they ever get a chance to payoff.”
The penultimate episode, “Weirdmageddon Part 2: Escape From Reality,” will premiere this Monday. Hirsch has promised fans that these last episodes are leading to a finale that will answer some, but not all, questions about the show’s mysteries.
