The Mystery Shack is shutting its doors, with Disney XD’s Gravity Falls ending its run after two seasons.
The animated series has two more episodes left: “Weirdmageddon II: Escape from Reality,” airing Nov. 23, and the hour-long series finale, “Weirdmageddon III,” to follow sometime in 2016.
Series creator Alex Hirsch shared the news via his Tumblr, making clear, “This is 100 percent 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.
“[T]here really are no villains here,” he said of the series coming to a close. “My team and I set out to do something and we did it, and the network supported our crazy vision. If you wanna be mad at someone, blame… I don’t know… the goat. With his shifty eyes. This is all his fault.”
A statement issued by Disney XD reads: “Alex Hirsch had a masterful plan for the stories and characters of Gravity Falls and, through 40 episodes and 17 shorts, he and a team of outstanding writers, artists and actors consistently delivered an inspired and unique story. … [We] look forward to treating fans to two fun programming events that conclude the story of Gravity Falls.”
