Avatar: The Last Airbender Timeline

Many would call Avatar: The Last Airbender the greatest animated show of all time, appealing not only to children but to adults as well. It certainly has become a cultural phenomenon. This is the Avatar: The Last Airbender timeline and episode order.

What’s on the Avatar: The Last Airbender Timeline?

Right now, the Avatar: the Last Airbender timeline is limited to two television shows and a handful of comics and video games. There are also two novels that adapt part of Legend of Korra. Here are all of the episodes and comics presented in chronological order. As of right now, this series is continuing with comics following Legend of Korra, but we have no word on whether this universe will continue with a new show, film, or other similar outlet. For now, this is what we have. This timeline includes:

  • Avatar – The Last Airbender: The show that started in 2006 to massive critical acclaim.
  • Legend of Korra: The sequel show to Avatar: The Last Airbender.
  • Tie-in Media: Various comics, novels, and video games that flesh out the story for those two shows.
  • Comics Bridging the Series: A series of comics that bridge the gap between the two shows.
  • Continuing comics: Legend of Korra comics that continue the story of Korra.

As with any of our timelines, we ask that you give us a heads up if you see anything that should be changed, added, etc. You can do that over on our contact page. Thank you and we hope you enjoy! If you do, feel free to check out our other timelines, such as the Pixar timeline.
