, Legend of Korra has been extended another 14 episodes!
|"“When we first starting talking to Nickelodeon about doing a new series in the ‘Avatar’ world, they asked if we could do shorter arcs—more like a show like ‘24’where there’s a specific villain or challenge for that particular season. We’re really happy with that number. It allows us to focus much more closely on each episode and get a lot more craft into it.”"|

So we now have 26 episodes of Korra! And I think they are also hinting that they will be doing more series in the forms of 'serials'. Meaning there will be no fillers, just really juicy episodes, with high concentration of story and character development crammed in. Which in my opinion, is much better!
|"Will characters from the first series show up in “Korra”?
Konietzko: Again it’s 70 years later so they’ll appear in various ways perhaps.
DiMartino: There is definitely a link to the old series and the old characters."

So some characters may appear, in my opinion, Zuko most likely in the form of his son/daughter perhaps, and even Aang as Korra's tutor.
And even more exciting:
|"Will we find out what happened to Zuko’s mom?
DiMartino: That question will be answered in some way, but not necessarily in the show. That’s all I’ll say."
There is much more to the interview here, so give it a good read. And I might note that Bryke didn't ever say the name of the series, so that is still unconfirmed, even though The 888th Avatar changed it (to my great displeasure). I think I can last until 2012 if they keep releasing interviews like this, but then again, 2012 is when the world ends. :)
