Holy wow, I almost forgot to post something today! I guess that’s what I get for sleeping all day, and procrastinating when it comes to doing what little homework I had to do over Spring Break.
But I did do some research, and thought that I would keep you updated on the new season of Korra. Especially since it’s so close to what I originally thought that the announcement would have been made.
I am saddened to say that, while all the rumors I keep finding say it will be happening soon, there STILL is no set release date. Rumors are flooding the internet and message boards saying everything from March 23rd to Mid April. To top it off many of them are saying that the show will go on a small hiatus after only a month and a half of new shows. But, after some serious scouring of the Nickelodeon website, there is no release date and no time frame of how long the new shows will last.
I’m seriously disappointed. Like many of you, I’ve been looking forward to this a while. With it being so close to the ‘release date’, you would think that there would be at least an announcement. That way we can stop freaking each other out, and just be excited for the show. This waiting game is getting ridiculous.
Well, I was at work last night and was chit-chatting with a co-worker who is a fellow otaku when we came to the topic of The Legend of Korra (TLoK). For those of you who have been living under a rock, and don’t know what that is here’s a link so that you can understand the beauty that is the show: Click here to watch the first Season of The Legend of Korra!
Anywho, we were wondering what happened to the show? We both watched intently through the entire first season, but what now? I feel a bit slow, as most of the people reporting on the topic had their stuff up and going since July, but I have great news!The Legend of Korra Season 2 is a go!
It was announced at Comic-Con early last year that the show has picked up 26 more episodes, bringing the total count up to 52 episodes that will span 4 books total. Book 2, which has been titled ‘Spirit’, will pick up 6 months after the first season left off and will follow Korra to the Southern Water Tribe where her family will be making an impact on the adventure this time. They also revealed environmental landscapes for the new season, as well as what has been happening with Team Avatar during the 6 months. Since then, Mako has become a Republic City policemen, Asami took over her father’s company, and Bolin is struggling to find himself. The Creators also shared that Korra will be exploiting her abilities as a full Avatar this season, making no shortage of spiritual endeavors and appearances of the spirit world. Here’s what I could find of the concept art for the new book:
It’s rumor that the new season will start this upcoming April, as a few of the voice actors had leaked this onto their Twitter feeds. To some this would make sense, as it was about the same time that the first season had premiered; but many are skeptical. Could this be a cynically elaborate April Fools joke? While both sides are debating whether or not the news is true, there hasn’t actually been a set release date. Thus we must wait patiently a while longer.
