Since this news comes from a second hand source, we’ll just quote it directly instead of erroneously interpreting it as something it’s not.
It was only a matter of time…
Since its June 27 premiere, The Legend of Korra has been troubled with low ratings. From as high as 1.5 million on the first episode to as low as 1.1 million on the fourth and fifth episodes, it was only a matter of time before episodes were either rescheduled or pulled completely.
Now, the network has started pulling the episodes completely. After seven new episodes of Book Three’s 13 have aired, Nick has pulled one episode from this Friday as well as all four episodes from August 1 and 8.
Episode 8 “The Terror Within” is still airing this Friday at 8 p.m. (ET/PT).
No word on when (or where) the remaining five episodes will air. With a Comic-Con panel this Friday, we’ll likely find out pretty soon.
This website has been a very reliable source in the past, but something has to be cleared up. It’s safe to say that right now, the remaining Book 3 episodes have currently been pulled from Nick’s schedule and that NickandMore is correctly reporting on this.
It’s unknown whether NickandMore actually knows this is because of low ratings. The tone and wording of their post could be as much of an assumption as further third hand sources on tumblr have presented. The episodes could simply be being shuffled to new dates and/or timeslots and are temporarily “pulled.” Nick could still be fine with these ratings and not even considering cancellation. On the other hand, it’s just as unknown that this is only a temporary hiatus. Korra could be cancelled forever with no future episodes ever released. Based on this report, the only source we have, we don’t know any of that.
What we know is that the entire future Book 3 schedule, as of right now, is as follows:
- This Friday, July 25th @ 8pm: 3x08 The Terror Within
sorry i just woke up from a nap so idk where i am right now jk but i am straight up filling my diaper with rage over this
WHAT THE FUCK?! WHAT DID THEY DO THAT FOR?
tbh it’s cuz nick is sloppy and stupid (also they have no friends) and doesn’t know how to manage anything. if they handled book 3 in literally any other way ratings would be ok - and ratings aren’t even that bad right now. but considering all the mistakes they’ve made (leaked episodes, changing the time of airing like 50 times and changing it from sat morning, etc) idk they’re DUMB AND SMELL LIKE SWEATY BALLS
you know what a sensible multi million dollar television corporation would do now? MOVE KORRA BACK TO SATURDAY MORNINGS AND SEE IF THE RATINGS IMPROVE
lmao they picked the wrong week to pull this shit because there are literally gonna be hundreds of pissed fans all in the same building this weekend while representatives from Nickelodeon are on stand-by
there are just some things in the universe that are fact and cannot be debated. examples?
water is wet
i am cute
nickelodeon is trash
Nickelodeon have decided to give Korra Book 3 a hiatus. On Friday 25th July there will only be one episode airing instead of the previously announced one hour special. After June 25th, Book 3 will be taking a break. It is currently unknown when Book 3 will resume airing.
