Season 3 of "Legend of Korra" is in full throttle, but news coming out of SDCC on day one was grim for the Avatar sequel series. Due to low ratings, Nickelodeon will apparently pull new episodes from the network to release them digitally on Nick.com and other video streaming websites such as hulu and Xbox.
While the show has continued to receive critical acclaim from fans and critics, the poor schedule management and time slot has drastically affected the animated show's Neilsen ratings. Season three has reached the lowest ratings the show has ever produced. While Nickelodeon has already picked up the option for a season four, this announcement raises concern for the longevity of the franchise.
