It turns out that the “post-finale edition” of the Between the Pines special wasn’t much more than a recut segment with some clips from the finale, which apparently Alex didn’t have any input in producing. You can get it by the usual links below or watch the one minute of difference after the Break.

Doesn’t seem like Gravity Falls is done dishing out answers to mysteries just yet. Like Alex said in his farewell post, even though the story is over, we could probably still expect to see more of the Mystery Twins after the show ran its course. On March 26th (the same day MLP & LPS come back), the “post-finale edition” of Between the Pines airs, which should fill in the gaps left open in the pre-finale cut, which would’ve probably spoiled things otherwise. Check out the promo after the Break.

Gravity Falls is officially over, the last episoded aired, a series complete.  The crew gathered together Thursday night for an official wrap party.  On Friday Alex Hirsch tweeted a series of photos taken at the party, some his and some retweets from the other guests.  Nothing ground breaking here, though I see Weird Al.  You can find the full tweets on Mr. Hirsch’s twitter account.

 

In other Gravity Falls news, while not related to the show or crew directly, a group of fans are trying to get Disney to create a box set for the series.

A long story short, seems Disney in general has zero intent on producing a complete box set for the series.  It is kind of a shame since in the world of western cartoons, not many get an actual finale, and more just float off into the oblivion, reruns and cancellation.  But its also understandable that in a digital world companies are more cautious about what they produce physically in an attempt to remain cost efficient, even if it was just a drop in a bucket for certain mega-companies.

Superfan Tumblr themysteryofgravityfalls has started a writing campaign in attempt to rouse the executives in charge at Disney, namely a Mr. Gary Marsh.  Its claimed that Mr. Marsh is actually fine with the campaign, as it would probably show physical proof to his bosses that there is call for a complete Gravity Falls box set that hopefully would include tons of extras.  Along with the writing campaign, there is of course, a petition.  So far 6,400+ people have signed it.

Remember when writing, be polite, don’t send food or other “weird packages”, don’t threaten the nice people at Disney, and don’t spam them.

Gravity Falls aired its 40th and final episode to a record high on Disney XD. “Weirdmageddon 3:  Take Back the Falls” drew an estimated 2.467 million on Monday which is a record for a Disney XD series. It was a huge night for cartoons withSpongebob Squarepants drawing 2.927M at the same time with ALVINNN! and the Chipmunks drew 2.082M on Nickelodeon. The Amazing World of Gumball also drew north of 2 million (2.168M to be exact) at that hour on Cartoon Network.Sofia the First earlier in the day drew 2.918M on Disney Channel.

For Season Two, Gravity Falls averaged 1.324M per episode for 20 episodes. That includes the two episodes that premiered on Disney Channel (“Scary-Oke” and “Little Gift Shop of Horrors”). It’s still a far cry from the 3.352M average of Season One when all new episodes were on Disney Channel, but the show did well above average work for Disney XD. Now the question is which show will fill the void left by Gravity Falls.
