Legend of Korra fans, the news you've patiently waited OVER A YEAR for has arrived: Nickelodeon has finally announced a premiere date for Book 2, which is subtitled Spirits:
Friday, September 13 at 7pm
Yes, that's a Friday and not a Saturday, where Korra has aired in the past. While the show won't necessarily *stay* on Friday nights—it seems Nick has been taking some liberties lately with the scheduling of its animated shows—our own Noel Kirkpatrick (who will be reviewing Book 2 weekly!) has pointed out to me that the Friday-night debut may be designed to open up the show's Primetime Emmy eligibility. (It already has a three Daytime Emmy nominations and one win—for Outstanding Casting for an Animated Series or Special—to its name.)
Anyway, Book 2! Now only about four weeks away!
Here are five ways to pass the time until the premiere:
1. Re-watch the official trailer for Book 2, which was first released at Comic-Con 2013:
