February 15th will be a day of mixed feelings. The scorned will be nursing their hatred, while the lovers will be dancing in the streets. For Gravity Falls fans, that day will be very confusing on the feelings front, as we not only get a new Gravity Falls episode, but we’ll also be getting the last Gravity Falls episode.

Show creator Alex Hirsch announced the ending of the show several months ago, stating he was ending the show on his own terms.

“I wanted Gravity Falls to have a mystery that had a real answer, an adventure that had a real climax, and an ending that had a real conclusion for the characters I care so much about. This is very unusual in television and a pretty big experiment, and Disney for their part has been enormously supportive. I know that hits are rare in this business, and its hard to let one of them go, so I’m so grateful that this company has had the vision to let me start (and end) the show the way I always wanted to.”

The last Gravity Falls episode, “Weirdmageddon Part 2: Escape From Reality” aired on November 23rd, and the finale, “Weirdmageddon: Part 3” will arrive as a one hour event that will wrap up the tale of Mabel and Dipper’s summer adventures with their Great Uncles Ford and Stan (spoiler).

Don’t worry, Dear Spoilerite. I’m already prepared with several bottles of whiskey to ease my grief when the last bit of Gravity Falls slips away into the ether as the signal travels throughout the universe to parts known… and unknown…

    This is truly sad news. Hopefully we’ll get complete DVD/BluRay seasons with tons of special features so that we can enjoy the show again and again.

      I’d buy that totally, especially if it’s shaped like the notebook with the six fingers on it.

      Plus watching the 40(?) episodes back-to-back would probably enhance than the months in between wait.

    This deeply saddens me. I watch this show with all four of my kids. It’s one of only a couple shows they all agree on. It will be a a bummer to lose that. Working on the codes and giving plot guesses was truly fun times.
