In a surprise move meant to give me a heart attack, Nickelodeon has announced that the final season of The Legend of Korra will begin airing on the first Friday of October (the 3rd) OF THIS YEAR. Yep, you read that correctly, and no, you’re not dying. (This is what I was saying to myself in the mirror just a few minutes ago.)
The fourth and final Book, titled “Balance” will be shown on nick.com every Friday, around 10 AM PDT. No word on how many episodes there will be in this last season, but it’ll probably be around 12, like the others.
Here’s hoping the shortest seasonal hiatus in television history doesn’t result in a loss of quality. I have faith!
