"We'll get more into the spiritual side of things. We'll learn more about the Avatar State and the Spirit World."
Michael Dante DiMartino during an interview about the primary focus of Book Two: Spirits.[1]

The cover art for the DVD boxset of Book Two: Spirits features Korra in the foreground, with Raava and Vaatu visible behind her.

Book Two: Spirits (神靈) is the second book of The Legend of Korra, created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko. The nomenclature refers to the focus of the season, a conflict involving the Spirit World.

The book debuted on television on September 13, 2013, with a recap of the first book followed by the first two episodes, though the opening episode, "Rebel Spirit", was originally shown to San Diego Comic-Con attendees on July 19, 2013. Spanning fourteen episodes, Book Two concluded on November 22 of the same year. The book also features a two-part special titled "Beginnings", which explores the background of the first Avatar, Wan. It is followed by Book Three: Change.
