Book 3 wasn’t the last book in the Avatar series! According to multiple sources, there will be new stories told in the Avatar universe. There is a new series in production, actually. It is currently called Avatar: Legend of Korra. This title was trademarked in May 2010 by Nickelodeon. Apparently it will take place 100 years in the future, but will have flashbacks involving Avatar characters we have already met. Hmmmm. Wonder what that means?
Likely, it will include descendants of our favorite characters. Possibly a reincarnation of the current Avatar, Aang.
