The beloved animated series Gravity Falls has come to an end, but creator Alex Hirsch is getting back to work. Netflix has announced that it's signed a "multi-year overall deal" with Hirsch, who will "exclusively develop new series and features for Netflix."
And, well, that's it. We don't have any idea what it is he'll be working on, or whether it'll be as closely as with Gravity Falls, or in some sort of other capacity. (We also don't have idea of when we'll see the fruits of his labor — Netflix tends to announce things far in advance.)
But this much is sure: If it's got even half of the love and popularity of Gravity Falls, this should be a good thing for Netflix — and for us.
