March 1st Release Date Rumor for Book 2 of The Legend of Korra is False

Over in the Tumblr-sphere, one Legend of Korra fan thought it would be funny to publish a false blog stating that Book 2 of The Legend of Korra would release on March 1st, 2013. This post ultimately resulted in yet another Book 2 release date rumor that almost everyone believed.

But as I have said in the past, rumors are just rumors. They should be taken as a grain of salt unless someone credible (such as the casts of The Legend of Korra) starts them. In this case, an amateur Tumblr blogger does not exactly represent a credible source.

Even without any credibility, however, this blogger still managed to somehow get 600+ re-blogs on the post. And the rumor was essentially in full go until the blogger graciously put an end to the madness by explaining that he or she had completely made of the date.

Did David Faustino Cover up Book 2 of The Legend of Korra’s Release Month?

If you’ve been following the Twitter mayhem that I’ve gotten myself into (follow me) then you know exactly what I’m talking about. If you don’t, then that’s OK too. I’ll give you a brief rundown of what’s been going on:

It all started when a Twitter User asked David Faustino (voice actor of Mako) when Book 2 of The Legend of Korra would come out. He responded by basically saying Book 2 would come out in April. After reading this, my first instinct was to break the news to my followers, so that’s exactly what I did.

Little did I know that I’d actually get a response from David Faustino the next day telling me that he didn’t actually confirm Book 2’s release month to be April. He explained that he was simply predicting that Book 2 would come out in April. At first I genuinely believed him. But after thinking it over, I realized that I think he may be lying.

Book 2 of The Legend of Korra Most Likely to Release During April 2013 [Update]

Update: Post has been updated at the bottom. David Faustino tweeted me some more information.

It looks like the release month for Book 2 of The Legend of Korra is all but confirmed. Earlier today, David Faustino, the voice actor of Mako, tweeted that he expects Book 2 of The Legend of Korra to air sometime April 2013.

No one from Nickelodeon has officially come out to say that Book 2 will air during April 2013, but based on all the hints alluding to that month thus far, I think it’s safe to say that the release month is set. More on all those hints after the actual tweet:

The Legend of Korra Book 2 to Possibly Release During April 2013

April Stewart, who has confirmed that she will be a voice actress involved in Book 2 of The Legend of Korra, may have slipped up a bit on twitter.

She recently tweeted directly to Legend of Korra fans and told them that she’d have to keep her mouth shut until April before she could talk about the show. She also mentioned that it would be worth the wait.

You can see the full tweet below, but if you ask me, it looks like April Stewart may have let the release date for Book 2 of The Legend of Korra slip.

The Legend of Korra Book 2 Release Date Prediction

As the title says, this article is merely a prediction piece. This is simply how I would perceive the Nickelodeon Network to act when it comes to strategically airing The Legend of Korra. None of these assumptions are necessarily confirmed.

Update: Possible Legend of Korra Book 2 release date found.

In case you are unaware, Networks base their Television Schedules on one thing: money. They research trends and data to find the best shows for specific times of the year. The Legend of Korra is a special show for Nickelodeon because it’s one of the Network’s biggest series’, and thus, their biggest source of profit. When The Legend of Korra airs, Nickelodeon has a massive spike in viewers, many of which are not necessarily avid Nick fans. And because of this, Nickelodeon’s ratings as a whole sky rocket causing an influx of potential advertisers who are willing to pay a lot of money to have their commercial aired.

That’s why Nickelodeon ordered 2 more Books of The Legend of Korra, they know how valuable the series is to the Network. And now that DirecTV has dropped the Network (causing a 20% dip in ratings), Nickelodeon will need to ensure that their highest rated series, The Legend of Korra, is aired strategically to boost the Network’s ratings to the highest degree.

That being said, the only way to efficiently predict when Book 2 of The Legend of Korra will air is to research and find the best times for Nickelodeon to have a massive influx in viewers as a whole. Once we find the appropriate time slot, we find a potential air date.
