Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender Renewed For Season 2 and 3

Following the huge success of the first season, Netflix has renewed the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series for both season 2 and 3. Season 1 debuted on the streaming service last month to huge viewership numbers, surpassing the first four-day views of the live-action One Piece.

Aang and the gang will return for two more seasons of Avatar: The Last Airbender after Netflix greenlit both season 2 and 3 simultaneously yesterday. This should technically cover all of the source material from the original Nickelodeon cartoon, which also ran for three seasons. Netflix also added that the show has over 41 million views after its premiere, topping the charts as the most-watched show on the platform in 76 countries around the world.

The series is based on the popular cartoon of the same name and the second attempt to adapt it into live-action format following M. Night Shyamalan’s 2010 movie, The Last Airbender.

While the first season did well in terms of views, the reception has been mixed from fans and critics. Hopefully with the renewal of two more seasons, the showrunners will take some of that criticism and use it to improve the subsequent seasons.

Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Zuko and Azula’s father, Fire Lord Ozai on the show, spoke to Netflix about the ending of the first season and what it leaves open:

“I thought it was really clever of the writers to end Season 1 in that way, because you want to get a sense that the universe of the show is expanding with every season. And they really did a good job of that with that cliff-hanger and also created a sense of urgency and time. Always leave the audience wanting more. I just had chills seeing Lizzy as Azula. You’ve got King Bumi in shackles, and it’s just like, ‘Oh, there’s so many cliff-hangers.’ I was like, ‘Oh, I want to shoot Season 2, 3 right now.’”

Avatar: The Last Airbender is currently streaming on Netflix.
