Gravity Falls creator says a revival is 'not inconceivable'
The wonderfullly weird Gravity Falls is very near its end, but creator and star Alex Hirsch gave fans some hope for more mysteries to explore sometime in the future. When asked about the chance of a revival at a press event for the series’s upcoming finale, Hirsch said “there’s a possibility.”
“[A revival] is not inconveivable. One day we might return to this world; it has such rich characters,” Hirsch said. “With some time away from it, there’s possibility for a special. I think when people watch the final episode, they will see threads in that episode that one could imagine could be addressed in some future form, like in a comic or a special. Right now I am content with what it is, but I cant speak for future Alex.”
Hirsch announced on his Tumblr last November that the current second season of Gravity Falls would be its last — a decision he says he made to protect the integrity of the series. He echoed this sentiment when asked about the show ending at the press event.
“One thing to keep in mind is that I did this because I love the show,” Hirsch said. “When I very first pitched the show, I pitched it as: This show has only a few seasons — just one summer, a few big questions that have answers, and once you get them, that’s it. … It’s more important to me to do something I believe in and am proud of rather than trying to stretch it out.”
The finale episode of Gravity Falls, titled “Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back the Falls,” will air on Monday, Feb. 15 at 7 p.m. ET on DisneyXD.
