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.

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)
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.

Well I'm watching them online anyway but a bit differently, if you know what I mean, i'll stick to that.
Any dates yet for Season 2? Or just 2013?
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
I will not watch ANY movies, they will never equal the actual anime, btw I am in book 3 now.
I came by this, I dont know how to link a video but the video link is here, I could not stop laughing for a good 5 minutes.
in the movie why does she pronounce his name as ONG? 0o
A look at the warcraft novels, RPG books, games and magical french space soccer.
