Welcome to korranews, the unofficial Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra news blog, your best source for everything Avatar, including the shows, comics, fans, and cast & crew. New episodes of the final season premiere every Friday.
Much like Sozin’s Comet, the four-episode finale of Avatar, there is a strong possibility that Book 4 ends with a four-part finale (and that the last episode will be titled Avatar Korra).
Just now, members of the Nickelodeon/Korra staff received this email:
It is an invitation for a Legend of Korra wrap party on Wednesday, December 3rd. If we are to assume that this is the Wednesday before the finale, then the following schedule for Book 4 can be projected:
October 17: The Coronation
October 24: The Calling
October 31: episode 5
November 7: episode 6
November 14: episode 7
November 21: episode 8
November 28: episode 9
(December 3: wrap party)
December 5: episodes 10, 11, 12, & 13; aka the four-part finale
This is only speculation but it seems likely based on the evidence.
Another new interview with Bryke has been published.
Some misinformation is already being deliberately spread. Here is the full quote about what’s next after Avatar - notice after specifically, not what’s next for Avatar.
Susana Polo (TMS): So I asked folks on Twitter “What do you guys want to know?,” and the big burning question was what’s next after Korra for you guys, or, I guess, what’s next after Avatar?
Michael Dante DiMartino: I know! We can’t talk about what’s next, ’cause we’re still trying to figure that out.
Bryan Konietzko: We’re still winding that up.
DiMartino: We’ll announce it when it’s time!
Konietzko: We’re we’re still full-time on Korra until the end of the year, and then we’ll be taking a little break. We’ll come back sometime next year with some new ideas, maybe. But this is kinda the end of Avatar for the moment, at least.
As you can see they clearly do not have another Avatar series in the works, but potentially “new ideas” that may or may not end up being Avatar-related.
Also, there is a “little frog-squirrel” character coming up in Book 4 that is one of Bryan’s favorite characters.
