Nickelodeon Pulls Five Episodes of 'Legend of Korra,' Will Go Digital Instead

Nickelodeon Pulls Five Episodes of 'Legend of Korra,' Will Go Digital Instead
/* Story Top Left 2010 300x250, created 7/15/10 */ google_ad_slot = "8340327155";
 
 

Wednesday, July 23, was an eventful day for The Legend of Korra. The last five episodes of the season were pulled, but will appear online, and one creator confirmed a fourth season.

Nick And More's reporting rumors that new episodes of Nickelodeon's The Legend of Korra's been taken off the schedule in "Nickelodeon Pulls Five 'Legend of Korra' Premieres."


According to Nick And More, the show's last five episodes of this season have been yanked off air. Low ratings have plagued the series. With only 1.5 million as the highest and 1.1 million at the lowest, the ratings aren't exactly glowing.

However, the show was given the death slot of Friday nights-a night most networks air their lowest level to burn out shows. NBC's Hannibal and Grimm are the exceptions to the rule. Without the audience backing the show, Nickelodeon's making some pretty brazen moves since the series has been highly acclaimed by critics.


Highly successful anime series Avatar: The Last Airbender ran from 2005-2008 while combining American cartoon style with anime storyline. Drawn in 2D, the settings were distinctly Asian and Inuit/New World with some American pop culture references thrown in, like the swamp people.

And the like The Legend of Korra, each season had a Book theme (Water, Earth, Fire) while following the Aang and his group of friend's attempt to end the Fire Lord's war through the use of elemental powers.

"Bending," or using psychokinetic manipulations of elements in Chinese martial arts, drew a wide audience, fandom interaction, and critical acclaim. Something most networks looks for when starting a project. But don't confuse the television series with M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender live-action movie interpretation. Just…don't poke that bear.


The Legend of Korra is a sequel to Avatar. Like Aang, Korra's an Avatar, a person who can bend all four elements, in an apprehensive world.

Modernization's always hard to accept.

It's been 70 years since Aang's bending talents and the world's split apart. Republic City's the main setting, the capital of the United Republic of Nations, a state that emerged through the war years of Avatar. And bending's a sport where groups of elements try and win through skills.

Although Aang was 12 at the start of Avatar, Korra's 17 and must learn airbending from Aang's youngest child Tenzin; effectively connecting the two series without forcing a shoehorn of old characters in with new. And each Korra Book has a different series and theme, starting with Air, then Spirits and Change, where the character grows into power and acceptance.


While not confirmed, Nick and More implies the network may choose to wait until the Friday panel at San Diego Comic-Con to confirm any news. According to The Outhousers' Zechs, the SDCC panel will be held "on Friday, July 25 at 11:15-12:15 pm (PST) in Ballroom 20."

Could definitely be interesting to see the truth at on an international stage and media storm. "Nickelodeon Reportedly Yanks Final Five Episodes of 'Legend of Korra'" reminds fans like the episodes could just be aired online, through the streaming service.

Co-creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino confirm the 8th episode of Book Three: Changes, "The Terror Within," will still air Friday, July 25, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).

Io9's Zuldim reports Konietzko posted on Tumblr and confirmed fan speculation in "The Legend of Korra is going digital."

"The rest of the season will be available from various sites online." And DiMartino's Facebook fan page posted the same message. Not particularly comforting since 'various' implies a lot of options. But DiMartinoupdated Facebook to say a Book Four will appear…just not how or win.

 


The web seems to be spinning out quickly with a lot of Korra news to come this weekend.
