Is Gravity Falls Season 3 Cancelled? What are its chances of renewal?
Gravity Falls Season 2 premiered on 1st Aug 2014 and its last 20th episode was aired on 15th Feb 2016. More than 6 years have passed since its last episode came out but there has been no information regarding Gravity Falls Season 3 release. Fans are desperate to hear about the popular American cartoon series getting a sequel. The question is will it be renewed for another season on Disney and/or Netflix again? Let’s find out.
The producer of the animated series, Alex Hirsch on November 20, 2015, when asked about the possibility of Gravity Falls Season 3 in an interview said, “the show isn’t being canceled- it’s being finished”. He also mentioned that this was completely his decision. The reason is that Gravity Falls has reached its natural conclusion. He had wrapped up the series at the perfect note and he was satisfied.
Alex also remarked that the show hasn’t been canceled, instead, it has ended on a happy note. The unnecessary prolongation of the series might have made the viewers lose interest in this series. He also admitted that from the beginning he had planned the show with a proper closure. Gravity Falls ended perfectly. There appears to be literally no way to add a Gravity Falls Season 3 without creating something entirely new.
Although the chances of Gravity Falls Season 3 premiering on Disney or Netflix seems relatively low, but don’t be disheartened. There is a piece of good news to lift your spirits. According to rumors, Alex Hirsch, the producer and creator of the series is working on shorts and extra specials for the Gravity series.
In Feb 2018, on the occasion of completing a successful two-years of the series finale, Alex Hirsch presented us with “Gravity Falls: Lost Legends”, a graphic novel that is the continuation of the story of “Gravity Falls”. The novel was officially launched on July 24, 2018. Fans are sure that the maker has sufficient material to give a spin-off, if not a complete Season.
Though there have been constant rumors of Gravity Falls Season 3 or Gravity Falls spin-offs there is no official source to confirm. However, fans are hoping that in June 2022, on the show’s 10th anniversary, an announcement for Gravity Falls Season 3 release or Gravity Falls Spin off series might come through. Few are even wondering about The Owl House Season 3 connecting seamlessly to both Gravity Falls and Amphibia cartoon series.

What will be Gravity Falls Season 3 plot?
The show unfolds in a place called Gravity Falls in Oregon. It shows two twins Dipper and Mabel Pines who visit their great uncle Stan during the summer holidays. Their uncle Stan owns a “Mystery Shack”, a tourist trap and Dipper & Mabel Pines help him in his business. Once they reach there, they witness various paranormal activities and incidents.
