There have been a string of false rumours and fake news pieces about season 3 of Gravity Falls being confirmed by Disney, here is what we officially know.
For millions of people around the world, Gravity Falls was one of the most memorable series from their childhood.
Airing between 2012 and 2016, the surreal comedy-adventure series was something different to the usual programme of animated Disney shows but still provided that fun, light-hearted entertainment that we all loved as kids.
Now, four years after the series concluded, false rumours about season 3 of Gravity Falls have been circulating online – here is what we actually know from official sources.
Will there be a season 3 of Gravity Falls?
- At the time of writing, Gravity Falls has not been renewed for a third season by Disney and the series will likely never return.
Over the past few weeks, there have been numerous false rumours and articles circulating social media concerning Gravity Falls season 3, with many using ‘clickbait‘ titles to suggest the series would be returning – this is not the case.
Creator of the show Alex Hirsch confirmed back in 2015 that Gravity Falls would be “coming to an end” following the season 2 finale and that this was all part of his original plan for 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 it’s something I decided on a very long time ago. I always designed Gravity Falls to be a finite series about one epic summer- a series with a beginning, middle, and end.” – Alex Hirsch, via Tumblr.
Whilst Hirsch did reveal in 2017 that he was open to continuing the series, this was regarding additional episodes or specials, rather than a third season. Since then, we have had no official information that suggests that Gravity Falls would be making a return.
We will update this article as soon as any new information is officially confirmed by either the production team, Hirsch or Disney themselves.
Gravity Falls season 3 release date…
As Gravity Falls has not been renewed for a third season by Disney, there is no official release date for its premiere.
Whilst highly unlikely at this point, if the series was picked up again by Disney then we would expect season 3 to premiere at some point in late-2021. However, a more likely avenue for new content would be in the form of shorts, which have been produced every few years.
The most recent short, Gravity Falls x Line Rider, was released on September 11th, but it remains unclear whether this will be the only short in this instalment.
We will update this page if any new information is revealed, but fans shouldn’t hold their breath for Gravity Falls season 3 or believe the false rumours circulating social media.
