Two pieces of news... First, The Legend of Korra
has been renewed for an additional 26 episodes, bringing the episode total to 52. Second, the new season will be titled "Spirits". I thought I'd start a new thread to discuss updates on the upcoming season as well as the episodes when they air. You can still discuss Book One here
. A start date for Book Two has not been set yet, but the writing and voicework are complete and the team is hard at work on the animation.
- Republic City will still be a main location, but the universe of the show will be explored more next season. - Source
- Team Avatar will travel to the Southern Water Tribe.
- Book 2 will explore the Spirit World and how the "Avatar" lineage began. Korra will travel into the spirit world and Konietzko hints that there may be episodes later in the season dedicated to exploring the bigger landscape of the Spirit World.
- Korra will have new threads inspired by Mandarin, asymmetrical fashion. Mako and Bolin will get big, fluffy coats for the frozen tundra that maintain their color coordination (Mako loves that red scarf).
- Asami is now the head of her dad's Future Industries, so she's gone corporate! Luckily, she has an alternate costume, an airship look that makes her a double for Amelia Earhart.
- Book 2 will bump up Bumi, a fan favorite and brother of Tenzin, to a regular character. He's got a big potbelly which fits his wacky personality.
- Korra's expanded family will be introduced. The creators mentioned that Korra was inspired by MMA fighter Gina Carano, which explains her build. It also explains why her entire family is ripped.
- Book 2 called "Spirits" and takes place six months after Book 1. - Source
