Description: Taking place 70 years after the events of “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” this story follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenage girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra. With three of the four elements under her belt (Earth, Water, and Fire), Korra seeks to master the final element, Air. Her quest leads her to the epicenter of the modern “Avatar” world, Republic City – a metropolis that is fueled by steampunk technology. It is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip it apart. Under the tutelage of Aang’s son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training while dealing with the dangers at large. Nickelodeon

Comment: This sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender debuted to record ratings but then saw its numbers drop significantly by the time it reached its third season.  Nickelodeon elected to pull the show from the air, but did not give up entirely on it as the third and fourth seasons were offered for online viewing, allowing it to wrap up as originally planned.
