When you are the N°1 TV animated show for kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14 you know your chances at renewal are quite good. And that´s exactly the case for Gravity Falls getting renewed for second season by Disney Channel.
Twin brother and sister Dipper and Mabel Pines are in for an unexpected adventure when they spend the summer with their great uncle in the mysterious town of Gravity Falls, Oregon, in the Disney Channel animated comedy “Gravity Falls.” Upon their arrival, Dipper and Mabel’s huckster great uncle, also known as Grunkle Stan, enlists the siblings’ help in running The Mystery Shack, a fun tourist trap he owns that overcharges unsuspecting customers. Although Dipper and Mabel quickly discover The Mystery Shack itself is a hoax, they sense there is something strange about their new town and together they begin to unlock the secrets of Gravity Falls.
The series, created and executive-produced by 2007 California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) graduate Alex Hirsch (“Fish Hooks,” “The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack”), is a production of Disney Television Animation. Set in the Pacific Northwest woods, the animated series features supernatural elements of adventure and mystery, inspired by the real-life summer trips shared by Hirsch and his twin sister while visiting relatives as kids.
