Disney Returning to Cult-Inspired “Gravity Falls”!


After I went crazy for Cartoon Network’s “Regular Show” a reader contacted me and told me that I would love Disney’s cult-inspired “Gravity Falls.”

While it’s no “Regular Show,” the first season of “Gravity Falls” is pretty spectacular, and does have enough horror elements to recommend to anime fans. And those waiting for news on new episodes, they’re finally arriving.

Variety reports that Disney’s cartoon will see the season two premiere air on the Disney Channel on August 1.

The show’s creator Alex Hirsch made the announcement on his Twitter on Saturday.

“Gravity Falls” has attracted a cult following, likely to do the fact that it’s often noted for being unique compared to other Disney Channel offerings. It leans heavily on mythology, for which it has been compared to “Lost” and “The X-Files,” while still offering a broader sense of humor.

Hirsch, Jason Ritter, Kristen Schaal and Linda Cardellini provide voice talents in the show that follows a young boy (Ritter) and his twin sister (Schaal) in the fictional town of Gravity Falls, Oregon, and the adventures they go on during summer vacation.
