  • Book Four is the only book of The Legend of Korra to not have its first two episodes premiere together.
  • Book Four was released less than two months after the finale of Book Three: Change, the shortest hiatus between consecutive books in the Avatar franchise.
  • During production, the budget for Book Four was cut by the near equivalent of a full episode, forcing the creators to make the eighth episode, "Remembrances", a flashback episode with minimal new content in lieu of firing crew members several weeks early.[1]
  • Book Four is the only book of The Legend of Korra not to feature a waterbending antagonist.
