It looks like Korra is going to have a whole new season of legendary adventures. Ew.com reports that Nickelodeon has picked up a second season of the acclaimed animated series The Legend of Korra. After averaging 3.8 million viewers for Season 1, Book 1, which concluded June 23, the sequel to Avatar: The Last Airbender has received an order for 26 more episodes.

Created by Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, Korra premiered on the Nick on April 14, 2012. The show is already set to return in 2013 with the premiere of Season 1, Book 2 (which consists of 14 episodes, finishing off the original 26-episode order), as 17-year-old chosen one Korra (voiced by Janet Varney) has now become a real Avatar. Kiernan Shipka (Mad Men), David Faustino (Married… with Children) and P.J. Byrne (Horrible Bosses) are also part of the cast.

    I spied J.K. Simmons at Nick in May prepping to do some voicework. I figured that it wasn’t for an insurance ad!

    Actually, the original order was for twelve episodes. Nickelodeon underestimated the popularity of the show at first. They expanded the amount of episodes AFTER mike and Brian had already began work. That’s why the latter parts of book 1 seem rushed.

      Yeah, I sensed that too.  My only quibble with the series so far, but understandably so.

    I’m so excited for the next season! I love Avatar.
