After Book 3 ended, fans have been left wondering both when Book 4 will be released and what it will be called. Well, we can now tell you that Book 4 will be called “Balance.”

The Legend of Korra co-creator, Bryan Konietzko, reblogged the announcement on Tumblr, adding the word “SOON” to his post, which could mean that the final Korra book isn’t as far away as we thought. If that’s the case, then The Legend of Korra may be coming to an end sooner than any of us fans are prepared for. At least we’ll always have the DVD’s and video games, right?
The latest news from Konietzko and fellow co-creator, Michael Dante DiMartino, was that Book 4 was currently in post-production.
If you think about the struggles that Korra faced in Book 3, then Book 4’s title of “Balance” can make sense. Nickelodeon told us to prepare our mind, body, and soul, perhaps alluding to the inner battle that Korra will face when Book 4 picks up. Wheelchair bound and mentally and emotionally defeated, it seems that Book 4 might very well focus on Korra’s recovery while she struggles to find “balance” within her own life and her role as the Avatar.
