A few people on this board complained about how awful the season was and were told we being too critical, that it wasn't that bad, and so on. Turns out a few million people agree with us and now Nick is killing the show just when it finally started getting good.
And it turns out that a few million people are either complete moras or lack the attention spans to stick with a show just when it started to get good.
Nickelodeon is also really poor at marketing compared to their competitor Cartoon Network.
Oy, oy. With the amount of options that television/online viewers have, it's really not that surprising that people would drop a show when it doesn't interest them, and then not hear that it's improved and be able to catch up in the... what, two months?, that Book 3 has been airing with zero marketing and zero legal online viewing methods before Nick flash-canceled it.
People have lives and are busy, such a crazy thing, but that doesn't make them less than anything, intelligence or fan-wise.
As for the future of the franchise, who knows. I want to believe what Bryke was saying about Legend of Korra being popular and lucrative in the online markets. Once this transition settles in, if it really does work out better for them as it has for other online-only shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, then it's possible there could be a series after Korra ends, or maybe a few mini-shorts of something like they did with ATLA.

Many of the anime streaming sites that are at all worth it have staff that is helpful. If you message them, they try to get better versions of shows that people request. (At least the ones I regularly frequent) Some of the more obscure anime's that I like I asked if they could DVD rip and they where more then happy too. They only like to do it if there is interest.... dont want to do HQ on hundreds of anime at a time.
