Legend of Korra Season 5 Release Date: When Will it Premiere?
Nickelodeon’s animated series ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender‘ has a “spiritual” element to it that has allowed to garner a huge fan following from almost every demographic. Following its success, creators of the show released spin-off series ‘The Legend of Korra’ on 14 April 2012, which went on till 19 December 2014, marking a nine-year journey for the ‘Avatar’ franchise. But unlike ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender,’ ‘The Legend of Korra’ was mired with several controversies. Knowing that the show already had a solid fan base, which included adults as well, creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino did not hold themselves back from pushing boundaries with the show’s content. The animated series stayed well ahead of the curve and broke all racial, sexual, and political boundaries that most animated series confined themselves to.
As a result, Nickelodeon pulled the plug on ‘The Legend of Korra,’ and instead of airing it on television, the kids’ network streamed almost its entire last two seasons online. Even the ending of season 4 makes an envelope-pushing revelation, which serves as a satisfying conclusion to the franchise, but still leaves you wanting more. Unfortunately, those who are expecting a new installment of the animated series will be disheartened to know that season 4 was its last season. The good news is that Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko created a graphic novel series for ‘The Legend of Korra, ‘ which chronologically takes place right after the events of the series finale. So fans of the franchise can stop debating whether or not ‘The Legend of Korra’ is better than ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ and jump onto the comic book series to satiate their craving for more for its content.
