    Warning: This story contains minor spoilers for “The Legend of Korra” 

    A new animated series following the next Avatar in the cycle has been announced.

    Announced by Avatar News on Thursday, the new series will follow the Avatar’s earthbending incarnation immediately after Korra from “The Legend of Korra.”

    The series is reportedly coming to Paramount Plus in 2025. No other information regarding the series has been released.

    A Twitter post by Avatar News announcing the new series quickly went viral, with over 247,000 likes and 41,000 retweets at the time of this writing.

    “Avatar” fans have a plethora of new content to look forward to in the coming years.

    Avatar Studios announced three animated films earlier this year, one of which will center around the original Gaang from “Avatar: The Last Airbender.” Netflix is also producing a live-action version of “The Last Airbender,” and although a release date has yet to be announced, new cast announcements have kept fans excited.

    Fans took to the comments to express their excitement, with some also mourning the inevitable loss of Korra as each new Avatar is a reincarnation:

    “My life span just got extended until at least 2025,” replied one user.

    Another user shared a meme illustrating their conflicting feelings about the announcement:

    As Avatars are normally able to confer with their past lives, one user expressed hope that Aang would make an appearance despite Korra’s actions in her series:

    “I hope you link the new one to Aang, let the new Avatar find a way to connect to the old cycle tho Korra broke it,” they wrote.
