Yes, Korra Is Getting Books 3 & 4
Hey, I’ve been at Comic Con. But this is true and I imagine it will be one of the first things we hear on the panel Friday (BTW - I’m (Da7e) is going to be live-blogging that panel at CINEMABLEND.COM - I’ll link you)
The word has come from an Entertainment Weekly exclusive:
Nickelodeon has picked up a second season of the animated adventure seriesThe Legend of Korra, EW has learned. After averaging 3.8 million viewers for Season 1, Book 1, which concluded June 23, the Avatar: The Last Airbender sequel received an order for 26 more episodes (which presumably will be divided into two parts called Books 3 and 4.)
The show is already set to return in 2013 with the premiere of Season 1, Book 2 (which consists of 14 episodes, finishing off the original 26-episode order)
We hadn’t heard that Book 1 and Book 2 were a 26 episode series split into two “books” because it was initially just the shorter mini-series.
BUT - this does mean there are 12 episodes of Korra down and THERE ARE STILL 40 episodes to go!
Great news for Korra fans…
… So I guess the podcast just got picked up for 3 more years? Who wants to grow old together? Am I going to name my first child after an Avatar character or a Korra character?
