Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino sat down for an interview with the Wall Street Journal a few days ago, and confirmed some news for The Legend of Korra and the future of the Avatar franchise.
Where does the show go next beyond Book 2 and the in-the-works Book 3?
Konietzko: We’ve announced both Books 3 and 4. And we’re pretty much done with writing on Book 4. So there’s a great deal of overlap in the production there. Book 4 is the end of the “Korra” series. So we’ve got 52 episodes planned. When all is said and done it will have taken I think about five years to make. Much like when “Avatar” ended, Mike and I need to just recharge the batteries and work on a couple of other things. We definitely don’t have another series planned, but I think this universe that we cracked open 11 years ago, I think it will always draw us back in, throughout the years, and I think it’s still an inspiring place for us to create and we have various other ideas, but we’re really busy just trying to get these episodes done and we’re not actively trying to figure out the next step in this world yet.
While it does seem like we won't see a new show for awhile, they both seem open to the idea somewhere in the future. What would you guys like to see in a new Avatar show?
