Will Avatar the Last Airbender be affected.....

Post by LetsMeetUpInParadise240 » Mon Nov 26, 2007 8:09 pm

..by the writers' strike?

I know it's in the middle of the final season. But I haven't heard whether all the episodes have been written or not, or if there'll be any delay in production.

I sure hope not. :-/

I was holding out hope for that myself. I had heard that animation, given the cost/effort of production, was usually wrapped up far in advance.

Anyone else heard anything?

middle of the final season? Is season 3 the final season? I thought there were 4 seasons total. Anyone know for sure?

It is indeed the final season, but apparently the creators are open to spin offs and such.

I'm kind of happy about this actually. Most tv shows run out of steam after their third season. I'm sure everyone can learn from the mistakes of the "The X-Files."

So far, Avatar has been running strong. :)

I heard that animation won't be affected because writers for animation are in the animation guild, not the writers guild.

It looks like Avatar's actually signed on for 6 seasons.

Well, I just hope they can come up with something worthwhile. :)

I'm pretty sure the interviewer misunderstood what they were saying.
Season 3 will be the last season of the show and wrap up the story the creators always intended to tell. But there is hope of other spin-off projects being pitched. Fingers crossed!

That's a shame. Still, it's probably one of the most satisfying television experiences I've had in a long time. I can't think of a single bad episode.

It was orignally written to be a 3-season show, I believe. The crew is all gone now, so I think writing's been wrapped up for a while (but if they were still writing, it'd be cool cuz animation is indeed not affected by the strike). Just heard a rumor that they might retool it and bring it back. But in the meantime, the live-action Avatar feature directed by Shamylan is in production.

Old thread I know, but yeah: the writing 99.999999999% done before the strike was even started (there may have been last seconds new lines added, but that's super minor and usually can be done straight at recording or line pickups).

Now if Nick could tell us when they plan to start up the rest of season 3, that would be nice. You know...a bit of advertising and such...

Yeah, I agree, the writing's already been done, especially with a show like avatar that actually gives a crap about the ending and isn't just an episodic "anything can happen this ep" structure. Since it has a definite plot, I assure you the end has been written. :D
