Netflix has been very hit and miss with their adult animation (for every Bojack Horseman, there's a Paradise PD), but knowing Alex Hirsch's style and how Netflix shows can potentially come out... I'm really not sure if I'm prepared to deal with what it is he has in store. Put simply, it may make Gravity Falls seem unremarkable by comparison.

That, and honestly Netflix is like the only adult animation distributor that seems remotely trustworthy at this point. Adult Swim barely has money, TBS has delayed Close Enough to oblivion, and FOX and Comedy Central just want Family Guy clone number 50.

I think if there's anyone I can see delivering some pretty original and entertaining adult animation that isn't just a low-brow comedy show, it's Alex Hirsch :cool:.

This is pretty cool news. There aren't a lot of adult animated series that I find too interesting or appealing, but given how I enjoyed Gravity Falls, I could see Alex Hirsch being able to make a new series that might catch my attention. The fact that it will be on Netflix might mean that he'll have more creative freedom than if he was developing a show for a TV network too.

Well speak of the devil and he shall appear. I bragged earlier on this site, and on BTVA that I'd like to see an adult animated mystery show like an adult version of GF... and it seems we may well be getting that. (mind you it may not be mystery for all we know but still)

This is similar to JG Quintel working on an adult cartoon for TBS, considering both Quintel and Hirsch made pretty popular programs for the networks they worked in. It's nice that Netflix has given Hirsch the opportunity to continue developing more content.

I just hope he doesn't use the same style of art as his shows, otherwise things would get confusing.
How? How would that be remotely confusing? If it's a different show with a different name on a different platform I highly doubt anyone will mistake it for Gravity Falls.

If the show uses the same art style as Gravity Falls, it's possible for people at first glance to think they're looking at a kids show. It's like how Sausage Party visually resembles something from Disney or Dreamworks, yet it's content speaks otherwise.
