This is the opening logo for The Legend of Korra, which has been used on every episode except the premiere.

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 original airings 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 returned on September 13, 2013 with the television debut of the first two episodes of Book Two: Spirits.[1][2] The first book of the second season, titled Book Three: Change, began airing on June 27, 2014, and ran for thirteen episodes.[3]
