The second season of Gravity Falls will be its last. Fortunately, it's not coming to an end because a merciless network decided to pull the plug. The creator of the series made the decision to bring the series to a close and give fans a real ending to the show.
On Friday, creator Alex Hirsch announced on his official Tumblr blog that the final two episodes of Season 2 will be the final two episodes of the series.
"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," wrote Hirsch. "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."
Hirsch added, "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. This is very unusual in television and a pretty big experiment, and Disney for their part has been enormously supportive."
