This series, initially was conceived as a miniseries comprising on 12 episodes but later it was prolonged and ran for all in 52 episodes during the mentioned time period. It was produced by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko as a sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender.

   The Legend of Korra, the Avatar after Aang, is a 17-years-old rebellious and hot-headed young woman from the Southern Water Tribe. With water, fire and earth under her belt, Korra must grip the art of airbending.Korra'spursuit directs her to Republic City, a virtual tender pot where nonbendersand benders live together. But she finds out soon that the land is inundated by crime and increasing antibendingriot that creeps upthe city to tear apart. The series follows Korra as she experiences various responsibilities, duties and challenges that arise with being the avatar but she is ready to take on the world. She is a very talented bender, keen to learn.

   The series mainly revolves around Korra and her friends, occasionally names as “Team Avatar: the non-bender Asami and the bending brothers Mako and Bolin. The older brother Mako is a fire bender described as "dark and brooding"who grew up on the streets of Republic City with his younger brother Bolin. Lean, tall and handsome, he was a talented member in pro-bending and before becoming a police officer, he was the former captain of the Fire Ferrets.

   His younger brother Bolin is an earthbender described as humorous, lighthearted, and "always [having] a lady by his arm"who together with his brother Mako, becomes friends with Korra. He has anunfathomable bond with his brother and holds a fire delve named Pabu. Bolin is optimistic and enthusiastic and, as a pro-bender, relishes all the attention he obtains from his female fans. His alluringtechniques land him a gig as an actor.

   Asami Sato, is the daughter of the rich industrialist Hiroshi Sato and she is the only non-bender amongst the leading roles.Tenzin is the youngest son of Kataraand Aang and of course is an airbending master.  Tenzin lives on Air Temple Island with Pema, his wife, along with his four children, Meelo, Ikki, Jinora, and Rohan.

Numerous people indulged in the creation of Avatar: The Last Airbender, containing composers Benjamin Wynn and Jeremy Zuckerman and designer Joaquim Dos Santos, returned to work on The Legend of Korra.The animation is mainly provided by Studio Mir of Korea.

    Review and Rating: The series has 8.7 rating by the users and critics which is pretty much good. However it is much more mature than it’s prequel, thus it is loved by viewers.

    The characters of Avatar,  The Last Airbender received both praise and criticism from reviewers.

    The story and character develop are well above average for a children's show. There are many "teaching" moments in each episode. The adults characters are respected and there are consequences for negative behaviors by the younger characters. Overall the brightest spot in the Nick line up.

    Excellent show that depicts children that act like real children who argue, make mistakes, and sometimes need turn to wise adults for guidance and advice. Deep epic themes and plots that an adult can appreciate but a child can also enjoy.
