"Keep doing time jumps and we get cyberpunk 2077 Avatar": New Avatar Series Reportedly in the Works, To Follow New Earth Avatar After Aang and Korra

The Avatar universe has suddenly shifted gears, dislodged from the comforts of its paced storytelling, and is launching full-steam ahead into an era filled with expansive world-building and narratives that take its audience well into the future, leaving behind the time of Aang, the last Airbender, far behind. It now seems that after Aang and Korra, the universe is ready for its third entity in the cycle.

So far, the world has witnessed the stories of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, but new reports claim that an original series is coming to Paramount+ featuring the next earth Avatar in 2025 that will serve to carry forward the narrative after the events of ATLK. The next cycle will usher the audience into the future, approximately a century after the time of Korra.

The world that the fandom will step into during this new era will be reflective of our present-day technologically developed earth but not everybody is on board with the change, especially after Korra was featured to be way too tech-savvy in its final season. Some fans are now mourning the medieval-era charm of the series that made it such a treasured canon throughout the years.

The original series set to launch in 2025 will also be subsequently followed by an animated film featuring this next earth Avatar as the protagonist. The series and film are to be placed in sequence, and the latter is set to come out sometime after the series gains steam. So far, there has been no working title or release dates announced, although, sources claim that the series could come out in late 2025.
