Not everyone may have realized that Book 3: Changes was quietly broadcasted over the summer months and for those who have managed to see it, to wonder how this quadrilogy will end will not take long. Next month, Book 4: Balance will be streaming online starting October 3rd on Nick.com with new episodes releasing every following Friday.
Thankfully fans will not have to wait a full year to discover how Korra’s legacy will shape the post-modern world she’s living in. Book 3 dealt more about socio-political malcontent that series antagonist Zaheer has been spreading the seeds of dessent to, and Book 2 was about bringing the spirit world closer to the mortal realm. Anyone who has seen the finale saw that these two series have something in common.
If this newest season is going to stitch altogether elements from these previous story arcs, hopefully series creators Brian Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino did not rush this final season into release because of the leak that happened in early Summer.
Perhaps Nickelodeon is not wanting to discard this product for good. They would do well to help create original programming that appeals beyond their intended audience.
