    Well this bites. Due to the fallout between Viacom and DirectTV, I won't be able to watch any new seasons on tv until an agreement can be made between the two companies.

    Great news! Not only will there be a Book 2 of Korra, but Nickelodeon just announced they've put in an order for 26 more episodes after that!
    My day couldnt end up better XD

    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).

    Someone really should remove the [Anime] from the headline before it causes more trouble. Some misguided individuals have started talking about this cartoon in the actual Anime thread.

    That is great news! I wonder or season 2 and 3 WILL actually be linked then, one can only assume that?

    Mod: The "Avatar is/isn't an anime." argument has been done to death. Please, don't bring it into this thread as it brings nothing constructive.

    I'm suspicious about the direct tv fallout, they say on the guide that viacom is responsible for all of the channels going away but I'm pretty sure that not only does viacom not have any power over the customer's subscription prices but they don't own both nick and comedy central... (might be wrong on that last part)

    Actually they do own them. Viacom is a bigger media company than most people are aware of. They also own radio stations along with CBS among those cable/satellite channels.

    Long and short of it, they're just being greedy corporate bastards that are trying to squeeze more money out of DirecTV and in effect, us, the customers. It sucks, but not much we can do. What sucks is that with the announcement of a third season of Legend of Korra, I guess I may have to stick to watching it On-line if an agreement can't be reached. I hope Viacom falls on it's own sword, in that with the loss of viewers on DirecTV, it will lead advertisers to soon be paying less money to them.

    Viacom owns tons of things...

    Basically, viacom wanted to increase what it charges for distribution, and to account for that increase direct tv would have needed to increase what they charge customers (to keep their profits from taking a dip). The real truth probably is that they both want to increase their profits but the amount direct tv would have had to charge to make up for viacom's increase would put direct tv out of the price range their market sourcing tells them they can charge without losing to many customers.

    i knew they owned nick because the guy that made the avatar abridged series kept running into problems with viacom, but i wasn't sure about the rest. also i had heard that the negotiations were going the other way around and direct tv was just asking for more money than the people who own the channels were willing to give out (i think that more than just viacom got the boot) but in either case someone is going to be losing alot of money due to this horrible deal, most likely both of them will. due to this deal i have no reason to watch tv anymore.... except for the odd episode of family guy that comes out.

    my brother is doing the same thing, but he is just taking forever to get started. also i don't think there are any solid dates yet, i believe the animation just started for season 2 and i think that takes a long time so either late this year or early next year would be my guess.

    also, apparently the movie is getting a sequel but m night is not writing it, just directing (i think he did both the first time) so it might be better... maybe, hopefully?

    edit: im looking it up now and it seems that it is very far off but there was a poster for it at comicon apparently

    The director apparently thought the names weren't asian enough.
    A look at the warcraft novels, RPG books, games and magical french space soccer.

    M. Night needs to officially barred from directing another movie in his lifetime. The man can single-handedly destroy a franchise.
