The Legend of Korra‘s stellar finale, which was released online last Friday (you can watch it, along with all of Korra’s superb final season, here), ended on a note that some fans weren’t sure how to interpret: Korra and rival-turned-friend Asami, walking hand-in-hand into the Spirit World, before turning to embrace each other. In a scene immediately following a wedding, the gesture seemed to be romantic in spirit. But because the moment was ambiguous, fans wondered—did this make Korra and Asami a couple? This week, the show’s creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko took to Tumblr to give viewers an answer. Spoiler: It’s an unequivocal “yes.”

For the entirety of its run, The Legend of Korra was almost as nerve-wracking for its fans as some of the show’s more intense action scenes. Originally a 12-episode sequel miniseries to Nickelodeon’s critically acclaimed Avatar: The Last Airbender, the show was quickly expanded into a full 52-episode series. But just as quickly, there were network hiccups; midway through the third season, the show was relegated to a digital-only series. Despite some behind-the-scenes drama, the series was allowed to end on its own terms, with a finale that culminates in a spectacular and fitting fashion.
The Legend of Korra wrapped its third season only a few weeks ago, but the wait for the next season (or “book,” rather) is probably shorter than you expected.
Legend of Korra fans can rest easy—the animated series has not been canceled.
Earlier today, the website NickAndMore reported that Nickelodeon had pulled the show from its schedule and that Korra‘s eighth episode, airing Friday, would be the last to be seen on television. While this is true, the creators have confirmed that the five remaining episodes of “Book Three” will be released online.
“Korra is NOT cancelled,” the show’s team assured in a post on the series’ official Tumblr page. “The remaining episodes will roll out weekly on Nick.com and the Nick app beginning August 1, as well as on platforms like Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Hulu.”
And there’s even more good news: “There is most definitely a ‘Book 4,'” co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino said on his Facebook page. “All the pre-production is done and Studio Mir is hard at work on the animation.”
Legend of Korra‘s San Diego Comic-Con panel will take place Friday, where this big announcement will certainly be a topic of conversation.
The last season of The Legend of Korra ended with Korra defeating the spirit of chaos and darkness and restoring balance to the world. How do you top that?
Well, plenty, as we can see in the new trailer for Book 3: Changes (the series refers to its seasons as “books”). At this point in the story, Korra’s lost the link between her past Avatar lives and left open the bridge between the human world and the spirit world, so there’s plenty of room for new narrative material. Now that the bridge is open, people and ghostly, creature-like spirits coexist. Curiously, the new trailer doesn’t have much of that — you’d think humans and giant bunnies would be hanging out everywhere. READ FULL STORY

It’s official: The Legend continues! Nickelodeon has picked up a second season of the animated adventure series The 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 is receiving a second-season order of 26 episodes that presumably will be divided into two parts called Books 3 and 4, bringing the total number of episodes to 52.
The series is already set to return in 2013 with the premiere of Season 1, Book 2 (which consists of 14 previously ordered episodes), as 17-year-old chosen one Korra (voiced by Janet Varney) has now become a fully realized Avatar. The cast also includes Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men), David Faustino (Married… with Children), and P.J. Byrne (Horrible Bosses).
