Gravity Falls Season 2 Premiere Date Announced

MABEL, DIPPER Gravity Falls

YES!!! The premiere date for the second season of the wonderful Disney animated comedy series, Gravity Falls, has finally been announced! Our favorite twins, Dipper and Mabel Pines (voiced by Jason Ritter and Kristen Schaal) and their eccentric Great Uncle Stan (aka Grunkle Stan) will return to our screen for bran new adventures on Friday, August 1 at 9pm ET/PT on Disney Channel and on Monday, August 4 at 9pm ET/PT on Disney XD. Thereafter new episodes will debut on Disney XD with subsequent airings on Disney Channel.

Here is what we can expect this season:

The new season finds Dipper and Mabel digging deeper than ever to learn the secret history of Journal #3’s unknown author, while Stan (voiced by creator and executive producer, Alex Hirsch) works on a secret project that could change everything in the basement of the Mystery Shack. Scarier creatures, weirder magic and new hilarious characters, including vengeful villains and love interests, will be introduced. Upcoming guest stars include Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker in Star Wars Saga) and Patton Oswalt (ABC’s “The Goldbergs”). Throughout the season, unique puzzle pieces with secret decodable messages will be revealed at the end of each episode’s credits.

The season premiere episode, titled “Scary-oke,” finds the Pines family resolving to get back to normal after the Lil’ Gideon incident. They throw a “Mystery Shack is Back” party, but some unwelcome guests crash it. In the second episode, “Into the Bunker,” premiering exclusively on Disney XD, Dipper’s secret journal pages lead him and the gang to the author’s hidden bunker where they find themselves face-to-face with a mysterious figure from Gravity Falls’ lore.

I fell in love with Gravity Falls after reading Sabienna’s article on why you should watch the show and giving it a shot. It’s one of the most original animated series out there and if you don’t watch it yet, there is still time for you to catch up before its return.

As for fans of the show, I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for the show’s return, I need answers!!… and more gnomes…
