After a blockbuster July, August looks to be a little quieter on Netflix—unless you’re an Avatar: The Last Airbender fan, in which case you are no doubt incredibly excited that all four seasons Books of The Legend of Korra, the sequel series to that anime-influenced Nickelodeon hit, is coming to the streamer on August 14. (Avatar: The Last Airbender boarded Netflix in May, kicking off a record run of 58 days as one of the streamer’s most popular programs.)

The followup, which began airing on Nickelodeon in 2012, was acclaimed by fans and praised by critics for its beautiful animation and its tackling of complex political and environmental themes. It also broke boundaries for its diverse representations of race, gender and sexual orientation in children’s programming.

Despite all of that, it didn’t quite repeat the success of its predecessor (which was turned into a live-action feature in 2010 that it’s best we not speak of). A dip in the ratings in the third season resulted in the fourth and final one being booted from Nickelodeon main onto its sister channel Nicktoons. And though it has found an audience via streaming in the years since, it has always been a bit tough to locate online: Until now, only the first two seasons were available on CBS All Access; if you wanted to watch all four, you’d have had to subscribe to the Nick Hits channel on Amazon Prime.

Now, however, ATLA and TLOK fandoms can finally unite on Netflix, as the service is hosting all seasons of both series, no doubt to help build an audience for its live-action Avatar reboot, expected in ??? (that being the release date for everything that was in production when the pandemic hit).

Otherwise, the biggest callout from this month’s list of Netflix originals are season 5 of Lucifer and the new superhero film Project Power, starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt and written by Mattson Tomlin, co-writer of the forthcoming Robert Pattinson-led Batman movie. The plot involves a drug that gives people superpowers, but only for five minutes.
