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.
Heartfelt thanks to the fans of Gravity Falls! If you watched the whole series through, you’re now an honorary member of the Pines family ?

“Ford discovers Bill’s true motives; a final confrontation with Bill leads to the Pines family’s ultimate fate and greatest sacrifice.“
After the Between the Pines special this past Monday, show creator Alex Hirsch spent some time afterwards taking questions & answer over his Twitter account (@_AlexHirsch). A Tumblr called “PS: PQXV TBFOA” pulled multiple questions from the Q&A and posted them to their blog. Behind the page break is a transcribed version for your reading enjoyment.
Gravity Falls wraps up its two season run this Monday on Disney XD with Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back the Falls.
