Nickelodeon Reportedly Yanks Final Five Episodes of 'Legend of Korra' (UPDATED)

Nickelodeon has apparently pulled the last five episodes of Book 3, after a new episode airs this week.

On the eve of SDCC, things just got bleak for Legend of Korra fans. Nick & More is reporting that due to low ratings (the latest episode having only netted only 1.1 million viewers), Nickelodeon is supposedly pulling the final five episodes of Book 3 from the schedule, with no time table on when they'll be released. I say supposedly, as neither Comcast nor Zap2it haven't updated their schedules to reflect this yet.

The move shouldn't be at all surprising to longtime viewers of the show, as Book 2 last year was plagued with various problems and low ratings as well. Book 3 returned to the airwaves this year in less time than the gap between Book 2 and Book 1, but it has still been locked in a Friday night death slot, and, not surprisingly, it appears things may taken a turn for the worse.

If there's any bright side to this news (assuming said news is true), it is that Nick will still air "The Terror Within" this week and the Korra panel at SDCC on Friday July 25 at 11:15-12:15 pm (PST) in Ballroom 20. It's possible that we'll get more information on the episodes being aired then. Though there is another possiblity that Nick could pull what they did with Book 2 and air the remaining episodes online. Whatever the case, we'll keep you updated on this developing story.

 

**UPDATE

 

Well, that didn't take long. Korra co-creator Bryan Konietzko posted this on his tumblr:

 

 

This does confirm sadly the move earlier is legit, but digtal how? Airing the remaining episodes online (as per how Book 2 ended online on Nick's site)? Netflix? Something else? We'll keep you updated on the answer once word gets out of the SDCC Korra panel this Friday.

 

***UPDATE #2 We now know when and how Korra will air the final five episodes.
