In an interview with Crave Online, Dante Basco (voice of Zuko) slipped some more details on the current production status of The Legend of Korra. When asked what was “going on” with The Legend of Korra, Basco was not shy to reveal the current status of the popular series:
We just started the new season, I think third or fourth episode. I have a role in it and I’m always proud to be a part of the “Avatar” family. Everything is hush-hush with it always. I’d get yelled at for even talking about it but I’m excited. I love the new show. I think they did a great job and I can’t wait to see how the fans take to it.
Now this is very interesting because The Legend of Korra is currently at its cross roads of destiny. The second season only has 14 episodes planned, and with 2-3 episodes already finished, Mike and Bryan will need to decide whether they want to extend The Legend of Korra, or end the series at season two.
This is not the first time Mike and Bryan have had to decide whether or not to extend The Legend of Korra. The series was actually already extended once: It was initially only going to be a mini-series, but it was later extended to two seasons.
Ultimately, the fate of the show is in the hands of the creators. We’ll just have to wait and see what they decide to do and learn to live with it. But let’s just be happy that Dante Basco has confirmed season two’s production as well as his role in the season. And based on what Basco is saying, I can’t wait to see how this season ends.
