WTF Is Going on With Team Avatar?
So Nickelodeon had finally decided to try and snuff out everyone’s favorite Water Tribe Avatar… kind of. The kid friendly network is pulling The Legend of Korra from on-air, and premiering the unaired episodes on Nick.com, the Nick app and other digital outlets (I’ve seen no mention of iTunes).
Now this quote from the Korra Nation Tumblr particularly stood out to me…
“Thousands of you have been asking to watch this incredible show online, so hopefully this news works in your favor. Mike and Bryan created a breath-taking season for us all…so get ready to watch it all go down!!!”
Fans have been looking where to find this show online to LEGALLY purchase and stream their favorite show. This smells of Nick, not loving the show, not promoting the show, and when it doesn’t get the rating they want, ditching the show.
What do you think Geeks? is this what you want to hear from the Korra Nation? Or, do you feel like we as a fandom deserve better? If you want to read the entire post from the Korra Nation Tumblr post, jump to the bottom of this post. I have a feeling this SDCC panel will be a giant nightmare for Team Nickelodeon.
“Hey Korra Nation! Phew. Some of you may have heard versions of this news elsewhere, but here’s the official word. After this Friday’s on-air premiere of Episode 8 “The Terror Within” at 8/7c, all remaining Book 3 episodes will move to a digital rollout. That means two things: 1) Korra is NOT cancelled, 2) the remaining episodes will roll out weekly on Nick.com and the Nick app beginning August 1, as well as on platforms like Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Hulu.
Thousands of you have been asking to watch this incredible show online, so hopefully this news works in your favor. Mike and Bryan created a breath-taking season for us all…so get ready to watch it all go down!!!
Thanks for being the BEST fans in the industry and see you at Comic-Con.”
