Avatar The Last Airbender

Netflix has officially announced a two-season renewal of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

This live-action adaptation of the cherished animated series is set to return with a second and third season, promising to bring the legendary journey of Aang and the unification of the four nations – Water, Earth, Fire, Air – to a fitting conclusion.

Since its debut on Netflix on 22 February, Avatar: The Last Airbender has clinched the title of the #1 English TV show, amassing an impressive 41.1 million views within the first 11 days alone. Dominating the charts, the series has ranked #1 in 76 countries and remained in the top 10 in 92.

Set in a world where the four elements can be controlled by people known as “benders”, “Avatar: The Last Airbender” introduces us to a time when harmony existed among the Water, Earth, Fire, and Air nations, maintained by the Avatar, a being capable of mastering all four elements.

However, peace is shattered as the Fire Nation launches an attack, beginning with the eradication of the Air Nomads, in their quest for global domination.

Hope seems lost until Aang (portrayed by Gordon Cormier), the last surviving Air Nomad and the next in line to be the Avatar, is discovered.

Along with his new friends, Sokka (Ian Ousley) and Katara (Kiawentiio) from the Southern Water Tribe, Aang sets out on a journey to restore balance to the world. Their mission is fraught with challenges, not least of which is evading Prince Zuko (Dallas Liu), under orders from his father, Fire Lord Ozai (Daniel Dae Kim), to capture the Avatar.

As the story unfolds, Aang and his companions encounter various allies and adversaries, each encounter bringing them closer to their ultimate goal – defeating the Fire Nation and bringing peace to the world.
