"Possibly final" ATLA series, my foot.  :D  If indeed they do stop focusing on ATLA, I think they'll switch to Legend of Korra.  There's a ready market for it, and I don't think Black Horse would pass that up.

They might just meant the last ATLA series, which is true. They could just be inferring that they'll be moving onto LOK.

I think Gene Yang even hinted at another series after this one. XD

Interesting:D

He did seem to,considering he mentioned his idea for the possible next one twice during the interview.

I haven't seen or read the interview yet, but the blurb I saw mentioned that they were thinking about another series that "focused on the Water Tribe after a considerable time jump", and certainly that would imply Korra, or maybe even pre-Korra, which would be even more interesting.  I guess since ATLA and Korra are part of the same franchise, I think of it all as ATLA after a sense; that's where I was going with that comment.

Although I am surprised that after The Promise, The Search, and The Rift, this one is NOT titled The Smoke and Shadow.  :D

I've heard about this one coming out. Hopefully it won't be the last. I am currently going through the first one "The Promise." I want them to keep the ATLA universe going and hopefully don't switch over or possibly do both at once.
