“The Legend of Korra” Fan Creates Petition To Bring Series To Netflix

"The Legend of Korra" Fan Creates Petition To Bring Series To Netflix
A fan of "The Legend of Korra" has created an online petition, urging Netflix to pick up the popular animated series.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, The Legend of Korra came to an end on December 19 with a two-part series finale.

Since the show’s ending, fans have been aching for its return, while struggling to accept that it really is the end. However, if there’s one thing I’ve learned from the Avatar and Korra fandoms, it’s that we don’t go down without a fight.

Warrington, United Kingdom resident, Josh Booth, created a petition on Change.org asking Netflix to pick up the Avatar franchise and bring it to their streaming service.

“After the success of Avatar: The Legend of Korra and Avatar: The Last Airbender, Nickelodeon has decided to discontinue the Avatar franchise,” the petition page reads. “Netflix has a track record for creating it’s own incredible televison, and has proven with shows such as Arrested Development that it can re-ignite under-appreciated shows with a cult following.”

Avatar: The Last Airbender, the first incarnation to the Avatar world is available for streaming on Netflix and it’s always possible that The Legend of Korra might soon join it.

While some might think that this is what Booth is hoping to achieve, what he’s really aiming for is that Netflix will pick up the series as a “Netflix Original Series” and allow Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino, the show’s co-creators, to return as the creative masterminds. “The Legend of Korra saw success as an online-exclusive show after it was pulled from Nickelodeon’s regular TV broadcasting, and with Netflix’s branding the franchise could be taken to new hights [sic].”

The petition, created on December 28, has already amassed close to 1,400 signatures.

What do you think? Would you like to see the world of The Legend of Korra and Avatar: The Last Airbender return to our screens via Netflix?

    Nothing is going to happen Legend of Korra has ended it wasn’t canceled much like avatar the last airbender the creators wanted a break to work on other projects. So you force the creators to start over thinking for new plots and other things it took them 4 years to finish the legend of Korra I can guarantee they want a break they’ll be back in another 2 to 3 years with another series set in the universe and stuff like this will make these big companies buy the series and make other people write which is not want you want.

      At least this way, Nickelodeon doesn’t butcher it with tiny seasons with tiny episodes. They said it themselves they could only squeeze so much. It inhibited their creative freedom plus this show shouldn’t be on nick. It doesn’t look right. Give the a break but let them make it without nick dicking around and butchering it.

      I personally disagree with you all though the creators of the show may be intrested in continuing to a different project i still want to see more of the legend of korra there are so many unanswered questions and Netflix looks like the best way to get them.

    Everyone keps saying this but no one seems to realize that Netflix can’t do anything as long as nick holds the rights to the series.

    Also, the last Airbender is not available on Netflix.

        Nick has to want to sell it, though. It’s a two way street.

    It might be time to get new writers to change things up. It’s risky but the original creators wasn’t a break from this universe so this is we can hope for right now.

    personally i believe that the four books of legend of korra should’ve been their own series in general, this way we would’ve gotten much better plots then what the amazing twelve episode limit already gave us, korra has ended we all need to leave it at that and deal with it before they try to start it again and end up ruining the avatar world in the name of making new stuff up

    Guys just so you know we’re at 45,000+ supporters for the petition for netflix to consider buying the rights to LOK… https://www.change.org/p/netflix-pick-up-the-avatar-franchise-and-release-as-a-netflix-original-series? It’s extremely and painfully obvious that Netflix is the right company to take over the show and give it the attention, and producing freedom it needs and deserves… it’s not much, but i feel like if this get’s enough attention… netflix might give it a shot. We can do this LOK fans
