‘Gravity Falls’ Season 2 Announced by Disney Channel

Gravity Falls

Dipper, Mabel, Soos and Grunkle Stan will be back to explore more supernatural wackiness in Gravity Falls season two, the Disney Channel channel officially announced today.

The series focuses on twins Dipper (Jason Ritter) and Mabel (Kristen Schaal), and takes place in the Twin Peaks-esque town of Gravity Falls where the twins are spending their summer with their money-loving, eccentric Great Uncle Stan (voiced by series creator Alex Hirsch). Gravity Falls is notable for its mythology and the intricate codes placed at the end of each episode for fans to decipher– both reasons the series has found crossover appeal amongst tweens and adults (its sharp humor doesn’t hurt either). According to Disney, as of 2013, Gravity Falls is the number one rated animated series across kids 2-11 (2.0 million/5.1 rating), kids 6-11 (1.6 million/6.7 rating) and tweens 9-14 (1.3 million/5.4 rating).

“‘Gravity Falls’ is mystery, comedy and weird all rolled into one unique show – there is nothing else like it,” said Eric Coleman, Senior Vice President, Original Series, Disney Television Animation, in a statement. “Alex Hirsch and his team have crafted a show with memorable characters, multi-layered stories, and production values that are rarely seen in television animation.”

Gravity Falls‘ season one finale is set to air this Friday, August 2nd at 8:30 ET on Disney.
