Avatar: The Last Airbender has been around the block a few times since its launch. After the animated series launched on Nickelodeon in 2005, Aang and his gang became TV legends for fans. These days, the franchise is back in headlines thanks to its new live-action TV series. It won't be long now until Avatar: The Last Airbender also revives its animated lineup with a new slate of films, and now, a new rumor suggests the series is eyeing a brand new TV show.

The rumor originated from Edelweiss. The digital book service listed a new Avatar novel titled Reckoning of Roku. The service, which allows publishers to track their book catalogs, posted a description for the upcoming novel as well. It was there users spotted an interesting note about the future of Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Under the book's key selling points, Avatar: The Last Airbender is referred to as a hot series. "A brand-new live-action adaption of Avatar: The Last Airbender is set to stream on Netflix in 2024. And a new animated series from Avatar Studios, featuring a brand-new Avatar, is currently in production and is set to release in 2025, which will set the perfect landscape for the continuation of our series."

Earlier in the blurb, Edelweiss ties the Reckoning of Roku to The Rise of Kyoshi, a recent novel from Randy Ribay that explores the iconic Avatar. With both of these novels exploring bygone Avatars, some fans are thinking Avatar Studios is laying ground for a brand-new Avatar to appear. Although the studio has yet announce a new Avatar series, a series following the next Avatar in the cycle has been rumored for a while.

The only projects currently confirmed by Avatar Studios is a trio of new movies, the first of which will follow the original Gaang as slightly older adults, taking place between the original series and The Legend of Korra. The feature film slated to release in theaters in 2025, and director Lauren Montgomery will oversee its debut.

Ribay, meanwhile, is a National Book Award finalist and Freeman Book Award winner, who will be taking over the reigns from F.C. Yee.

With the recent revival of Avatar: The Last Airbender, fans do believe a new animated series is overdue. The original show launched in 2005, and its sequel The Legend of Korra followed from 2012 to 2014. Both shows have since continued with best-selling graphic novels.

It has been a decade since the animated series reared its head with new content, and with Avatar Studios in the wings, it is high time for the IP to resurface.
