'Gravity Falls' Season 3 Update: Alex Hirsch Hints Series Return, Reboot After 'Weirdmageddon 3'
'Gravity Falls' Season 2 Spoilers: What Will Happen In 'Weirdmageddon 3' Episode 20? [Video]
Earlier in 2016, Hirsch confirmed Gravity Falls Season 3 to not yet be in the plans for future Disney XD release date. The Gravity Falls ending, Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls, was written a year before the premiere date, so the animation team had a pretty good idea on where the story would end. But finishing off Season 2 with the final Gravity Fall episodes was apparently an arduous process where the only mystery was finding time for sleep.
"I promised myself, 'This is it. You're not making another season. You're done.' Because I was wiped out," Hirsch recalls.
Despite confirming that GF Season 3 would never happen, Hirsch felt that he needed to reward fans who were still celebrating the show. The Gravity Falls Hulu launch in 2016 made the Disney TV show even more popular and then over the summer Hirsch started an international scavenger hunt based upon decoding cryptic tweets.

"I thought about nothing but the Pines Family for four years, so my brain is packed with stories, ideas, jokes that never made it into the series for one reason or another," Alex Hirsch said in an interview with Paste Magazine. "This journal was a great way to introduce some of those lost ideas, and to create a parting gift to our fans."

Of course, what everyone wants is some word on whether Gravity Falls Season 3 can be resurrected without being yucky like a zombie. After all, last November Hirsch did hold out a thread of hope by saying, "It's not inconceivable that one day we may return to this world because they are such rich characters, and with a little bit of time away from it, it's possible there may be a special or something." Hirsch was asked if a Gravity Falls TV show spinoff was possible, but so far the only hope we're being given now is the possibility of Gravity Falls comics.
"Believe it or not, Gravity Falls as we know it really is done.... Seriously though, I love the world of Gravity Falls, but I need to move on to other things for now," he explained. "Although I have been considering Gravity Falls comics. We'll see what Disney Publishing says. Fingers crossed!"
GF fans should also be happy to hear that Alex Hirsch has plans for another "top secret" TV show.
