This is the list of episodes for the animated television series The Legend of Korra. The series premiered on April 14, 2012. Like its predecessor Avatar: The Last Airbender, the series classifies each episode as a "chapter", but unlike the previous series, where each season was one "book", The Legend of Korra has two seasons, comprised of two distinct "books" each. The list is ordered by release dates from the airings in the United States.
The release date for each episode listed below is from the original airing in the United States.
After averaging 3.9 million viewers for Book One, The Legend of Korra received an order for twenty-six more episodes in July 2012. The show is set to return in 2013 with the premiere of Book Two: "Spirits".
Book One: Air Edit
The first two chapters comprised the series premiere. As part of a special preview, these were made available on the site KorraNation.com during the weekend of March 24 and 25, 2012, twenty-one days before the official premiere. Nickelodeon also released the first part of the second episode of the series for online viewing on April 2, 2012, twelve days earlier than the television air date. After both earlier releases, iTunes released a season pass and the first two episodes on April 3, 2012. For a short period of time, episodes one and two were available for free downloading.
