Season two of Disney's popular animated comedy series "Gravity Falls," starring Jason Ritter ("Parenthood") and Kristen Schaal ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart") as Dipper and Mabel Pines, twins who spend the summer with their eccentric Great Uncle Stan (aka Grunkle Stan), debuts FRIDAY, AUGUST 1 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel and MONDAY, AUGUST 4 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD. Thereafter new episodes will debut on Disney XD with subsequent airings on Disney Channel.

"Gravity Falls" creator and executive producer, Alex Hirsch, announced the season premiere during the "Gravity Falls Live!" panel at the Los Angeles Film Festival on Saturday, June 14.

They throw a "Mystery Shack is Back" party, but some unwelcome guests crash it. In the second episode, "Into the Bunker," premiering exclusively on Disney XD, Dipper's secret journal pages lead him and the gang to the author's hidden bunker where they find themselves face-to-face with a mysterious figure from Gravity Falls' lore.
