Netflix has announced a multi-year with Gravity Falls creator, Alex Hirsch.

Hirsch will create new animated series and films for the streaming service. This news comes just weeks after Netflix signed a deal with black-ish creator, Kenya Barris. Netflix has previously made multi-year deals with Ryan Murphy, Shonda Rhimes, Barak & Michelle Obama and Mark Millar (via their Millarworld acquisition).

“I couldn’t be more excited to join the amazing roster of talent coming to Netflix”, said Hirsch. “Plus it couldn’t hurt to be on The Algorithm’s good side before The Singularity hits. Awesome things are coming!”

Hirsch’s Disney Channel/Disney XD animated series Gravity Falls earned him an Annie and a BAFTA. The show ran for two seasons and later became graphic novel called, Gravity Falls: Lost Legends.

“Alex is an imaginative storyteller with new ideas who’s quickly developed a reputation as a fresh new voice in animation,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content for Netflix. “We couldn’t be more excited to work with him as we continue expanding our adult animated slate.”

Hirsch also contributed to the story of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse as well as a draft for the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie.

Some of Netflix adult animated series include the critically acclaimed, BoJack Horseman, Big Mouth, F is for Family and the upcoming series, Tuca & Bertie by the team behind BoJack Horseman.
