Hi anon! No need to apologize! I didn’t find out until hours after the news was released anyway, so we’re on the same page. :)
And no, LoK is NOT cancelled! Nickelodeon pulled the remaining episodes (episodes 9-13) from airing on television. In other words, we won’t be able to watch Book 3 on television anymore.
But there is some good (as good as it’s going to get, at least) news.
We will still get to see the remaining episodes. The official ‘Legend of Korra’ Facebook page recently made a post (x) saying that the episodes will be uploaded on a week-by-week basis to the Nick.com site, Hulu, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox, and other platforms for fans to stream, download, and purchase.
Episode 8, titled “The Terror Within”, will air on Friday night at 8PM EST. It will be the last episode of the book to air on television.
Episode 9, titled, “The Stakeout” will be uploaded sometime next Friday on the video streaming sites that I listed previously. The remaining episodes will be uploaded in the same fashion as the preceding eps, with one new episode each week (excluding the two-episode finale).
If Nick continues the week-by-week schedule, then we will get the Book 3 finale on August 22, 2014.
NOTE: Knowing that Nickelodeon site has been region-locked in the past, I’m assuming that only U.S. residents will get to see the new episodes. BUT, there will be people that will screen-record the episodes and upload them to various video streaming sites (ones that are free, if you catch my drift). International viewers will be able to view the episodes. I guarantee that.
ALSO (IMPORTANT FOR INTERNATIONAL VIEWERS): If you don’t want to wait until someone records the episodes and uploads them on their own, you can bypass Nick.com’s site restrictions (or any site, for that matter). I would highly, highly recommend downloading Hola. It’s a browser extension that you add to Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer. It also works on the Windows and Mac OS operating systems, as well as mobile (iPhone/iPad and Android).
All of you have to do, after the extension is installed, is click on the fire icon in the right-hand corner of your browser and select what country you’re accessing the site from. In this case, since you want to access material that is strictly in the U.S., you would select ‘United States’ in the list of countries that you’re given, and voila! Just head over the to the Nick.com site and you’ll be able to view whatever content you want!
It works. It really does. I used Hola to watch the leaked Book 3 episodes that were accidently uploaded to the MundoNick website (MundoNick is Nick’s affiliate that’s based out of Mexico)!
And one more thing: WE WILL STILL BE GETTING BOOK 4. DON’T FRET. (x)
If anyone has any other questions, feel free to send them my way!
