Fans have been wondering when the sequel series would be added to the streaming giant after many of them completed the original show and noticed TLOK wasn't available. While the show has been available for streaming on Amazon Prime and CBS All Access, it will now be coming to Netflix starting on August 14.
Netflix made the big announcement on their Twitter page, NX on Netflix, with a cute gif of a young Korra announcing that she's the new Avatar after Aang's death.

The series follows Korra as she follows in the footsteps of all the Avatars before her and tries to save the world while becoming a master of all four elements. The series also introduces a brand new setting, Republic City, which was created by the original Team Avatar after the end of the series.
While fans can certainly expect some familiar faces throughout the series, the show's darker and fiercer tone sets it apart from its predecessor. Throughout its run, The Legend of Korra was praised for its handling of topics like mental health, politics, gender, race, and identity. After a successful first season, the then-miniseries was renewed and went to run for four seasons.
Although The Legend of Korra initially ended back in 2014, Korra's story still continues in a comic series by Dark Horse.
