Netflix orders two new seasons of Avatar: The Last Airbender

Netflix has a new success: the live action series Avatar is a hit on the platform.

At the top of the podium for the most viewed series currently on Netflix, Avatar the Last Airbender won the trial by fire. The platform seems delighted with this success, since it is undertaking the ordering of two additional seasons, as announced TVLine. The release dates and the number of episodes have not been revealed, but it would be about concluding the series in a final season 3, the end of Aang's journey.

A successful first flight

The first season of eight episodes entered the Netflix catalog on February 22, 2024, quickly becoming one of the most watched series on the platform. The $120 million live-action project has 41.1 million views in its first 11 days on Netflix, surpassing even the series One Piece (37.8 million), another remake based on an anime.

This version frees itself from all links with the eponymous film by Mr. Night Shyamalan released in 2010. The live action Netflix series remains faithful to the Nickelodeon animated series created by Michael Dante DiMartino And Bryan Konietzko, by highlighting Gordon Cormier as Aang, a powerful young warrior, master of the four elements (air, water, earth and fire — in that order!) to defeat the ruthless Fire Nation and restore order to his world ravaged by war.

The eponymous cartoon took the audience – children, adolescents and even adults – into its Chinese folkloric whirlwind, dedicated to restoring the balance between the elements. In France, the animated series was broadcast in 2005 on TF1, but also a few years later on Nickelodeon France as well as on Game One.

Albert Kim (Sleepy Hollow, Nikita) is at the helm of artistic production, alongside Dan Lin (The Lego Great Adventure, Aladdin) And Lindsey Liberatore (Walker) who ensure executive production, with Michael Goi (Swamp Thing, American Horror Story). A fine team, which justifies this success…

This Avatar has great airs of fantasy (critic)
