How to Watch 'Avatar' Sequel 'The Legend of Korra' on Amazon Prime, YouTube and Google Play

In just a short week, Avatar: The Last Airbender became the most watched bit of content in Netflix’s entire digital library. The highly binge-able animated series, which first aired on Nickelodeon in the mid-2000s, is sure to leave viewers hungry for more – but what to do about that hunger?

Fortunately, series creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko followed up their masterpiece with an equally impressive sequel. Unfortunately, however, that sequel – aptly titled The Legend of Korra – is not available on Netflix at the moment.

While fans strongly suspect that the streamer will distribute the show ahead of releasing its planned reboot of the original story, those who feel that they can’t wait will be glad to know that Korra’s adventure awaits on other streaming platforms.

Long story short, The Legend of Korra is currently available on CBS All Access, Amazon Prime, YouTube and Google Play. On Amazon, The Legend of Korra is available to watch via the NickHits SVOD channel, and Prime subscribers can watch the show for free, while non-members must pay a small fee fixed at about $10 per season, or $2 per episode.

Meanwhile, on YouTube and Google Play, you can purchase the complete show for £39.99 or individual episodes for £1.99 with Google Play offering each season for £16.49 individually.

In case you’ve recently been introduced to Avatar for the first time, Legend of Korra follows Korra, the next reincarnation of the Avatar, a messianic figure endowed with the ability to control all four elements – fire, water, earth, air – at once, as she battles against spiritual and political unrest in a changing world.

While this means that Aang, the previous Avatar, and protagonist of The Last Airbender, has died by the time The Legend of Korra story begins. However, he, along with many of his companions, still play an important part in the story. The series ran for 52 episodes over four seasons (or "Books").

The Legend of Korra is a worthy successor which perfectly balances the obligation to pay homage to its frontrunner with the need to explore new themes and reinvent itself, and therefore is certainly worth the watch.

The series received widespread praise, winning the IGN Best TV Animated Series award in 2012, the Annie award for Storyboarding in an Animated Production in 2014 and the Gracie Allen award for Outstanding Animated Programming-Production in 2015.

The Legend of Korra is also famous for featuring one of kids' TV's first same-sex relationships! Korrasami 4 eva!
