Online fans got a nice shout out from one of the Nick executives in charge, who said:

"Fans on Nickelodeon's message boards and countless Avatar online fan sites have been clamoring for the third season to begin since the second season finale," said Marjorie Cohn, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon Television.

The press release confirms several items the online community already knew, such as the title of episode 301, "The Awakening", and the time change for the broadcast, now 8:30 PM eastern on the 21st.

There is also, however, a load of new information. Nicktoons will be running an Avatar marathon of season one and two episodes starting Monday, September 17th at 2 PM eastern and ending on Thursday, September 20th.

The season two DVD box set due out on September 11th, in addition to the interview with M. Night Shyamalan, the bonus disc will include the following:
  • Three animated shorts (one of which is presumably "School Time Shipping")
  • An exclusive animated graphic novel
  • A martial arts featurette
Nick also confirmed in this press release that TurboNick will have new episodes available for viewing shortly after they are broadcast. Also, iTunes and other authorized video distribution partners will have the episodes available for sale and download within a week of broadcast.

Lastly, the Nick website will be hosting two new Avatar games. "The Day of the Black Sun" will be available for play on November 15th, and "Clash of the Benders" will be available on November 29th.

Thanks as always to everyone who emailed this in!
