- The show will premiere on February 22, 2024
- The show is another experiment from Netflix after One Piece, its successful live-action drama
- Three seasons of the show are already available on Netflix
Netflix has unveiled the first official trailer for yet another live-action adaptation, Avatar: The Last Airbender, which is based on the animated Nickelodeon TV series of the same name. This comes just after the critically lauded live-action adaptation of the enormously famous anime series One Piece. Netflix’s history with anime adaptations has been uneven, but if this teaser is any guide, The Last Airbender may become just another huge hit for the service after One Piece.
The three seasons of the Nickelodeon anime Last Airbender, which followed Aang’s journey to become an expert in each of the other three elements (Fire, Earth, and Water), debuted in February 2005. When Netflix introduced The Last Airbender’s three seasons (a total of 61 episodes) to its streaming collection in 2020, the anime series took the top spot on the platform in just four days and remained in the top 10 for 60 days. It makes sense that Netflix approved a live-action version.
When and Where to Watch Avatar: The Last Airbender
According to the information shared by Netflix, the show will premiere on Netflix on February 22 next year; In the meanwhile, viewers can watch all the previous three seasons available on the streaming giant’s platform.
