Plot Of The Legend of Korra
The legend of Korra was different from its successor. While Avatar: The Last Airbender was designed basically for the entertainment of children whereas Legend of Korra had focused on an older audience, and it has used more mature themes such as terrorism, fascism, and sexual orientation. Many fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender hated the show for its drastic change.
Also, fans were upset When Nickelodeon pulled Legend of Korra from the air without warning in the middle of season 3, and released season 4 entirely online. Then viewers also blamed Nickelodeon’s refusal to promote the show for its demise it became clear that the show had no future on the network.
As we know that Legend of Korra had a troubled relationship with Nickelodeon from the start so it became clear that the show had no future on the network.
Legend of Korra was criticized due to various reasons such as:-
Working under the pressure and also under the threat of cancellation by Nickelodeon.
Shifting of the theme.
Stopped season 3 in between without giving prior intimation and released season 4 entirely online.
Resulting in the massive dropping in rating.
Although it was never officially canceled, the massive rating drop and mature content meant that Legend of Korra season 5 could never have happened on Nickelodeon.
