Korra moving to digital
"Korra not cancelled. Moving to digital. We'll talk at SDCC. Thanks for caring."

These were the words of ATLA and TLOK co-creator Bryan Konietzko in response to a tense afternoon in the Korra fandom after the nickandmore website broke the news that Nickelodeon would stop airing two episodes per week, pulling the last five episodes of Book 3 from its airing schedule.

Co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino also commented, on his facebook page:

"Hang tight, Korra fans. There is 1 new episode this Friday at 8, then the rest of the season will be available from various sites online. We'll let you know when we have more details. Thanks!"

What does this mean? It sounds like we'll get to see one more TLOK episode on TV and then after that the rest of Book 3 will only be available online (but where -- nick.com? iTunes? somewhere else?). However, we won't know for certain until the official TLOK panel at SDCC happens this coming Friday, July 25th.

We'll post more details as they become available.

UPDATE (24/july/2014) - Mike DiMartino added later last night, in his facebook page:

"Hey everyone! I appreciate all the support for the show and share your frustration. But the good news is, you will be able to see the rest of Book 3 of Korra, I just don't know all the details yet. And there is most definitely a Book 4. All the pre-production is done and Studio Mir is hard at work on the animation. So this was a disappointing development for sure but as long as you all are able to see the show in some capacity, I'm grateful. And honestly, you're all watching it online anyway, right? :) "

And the newest comes from KorraNation, who reaffirm that we will get to see episode 308 on TV this week and then the rest of Book 3 will be available online: "[...] the remaining episodes will roll out weekly on Nick.com and the Nick app beginning August 1, as well as on platforms like Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Hulu."

We'll update again (or write a new post, most likely) once we get more information at SDCC tomorrow.
