The live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender is one of the most anticipated upcoming Netflix originals, and it appears that fans of the award-winning and beloved Nickelodeon animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender will be excited to see their favorite characters brought to life, and it's already expected to be much better than M. Night Shyamalan's film version of the novel.
Avatar: The Last Airbender chronicles the adventures of Aang and his companions as they attempt to save the world by defeating Fire Lord Ozai and bringing an end to the hazardous conflict with the Fire Nation. In 2020, The Legend of Korra, a popular spin-off series, succeeded the animated series.
Will Netflix Release the live-action Avatar in September 2022?
The live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender will not be available on Netflix in September 2022, according to the streaming service's list of September 2022 movies and TV shows. However, production on the first season has concluded, so expect more updates shortly. Actor Paul Sun-Hyung Lee said in an interview with Handsome Genius Club Radio Show that there will be a total of eight one-hour episodes in Season 1. Expect all eight episodes to debut simultaneously on Netflix.
What is the Release Date for Avatar: The Last Airbender?
Netflix has not yet announced an official release date for the live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender, but production has concluded and the series is currently in post-production, which is expected to take several months due to the show's heavy reliance on visual effects.
Avatar: The Last Airbender Cast
IMDb has given a cast list for the live-action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender, and while we believe that further names may be added once filming is complete, for the time being, you can discover all of the cast members for the Netflix series below:
- Gordon Cormier as Aang.
- Kiawentiio as Katara.
- Ian Ousley as Sokka.
- Dallas Liu as Zuko.
- Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Uncle Iroh.
- Daniel Dae Kim as Fire Lord Ozai.

The Expected Plot of Avatar: The Last Airbender's live-action
The animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender follows Aang, the last surviving member of the Air Nomads, who is discovered by Katara and her brother Sokka, members of the Southern Water Tribe, after being frozen for 100 years.
Aang discovers, following his thawing, that the militaristic Fire Nation has conquered the other Kingdoms and has sinister aspirations to dominate the Earth. Aang must master all four elements, become the Avatar, and restore harmony to the war-torn land to halt the Firebenders.
The good news is that it appears Netflix will adhere to this script, which helped the original cartoon become one of the greatest television series of all time. Netflix said in 2018 that their upcoming live-action television series would be a “reimagining” of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
This does not mean that the Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action Netflix series will be a strict remake, but it does hint that it will follow the same beats and story progression as the 2005 animated series' first season.
Aang, Katara, and Sokka (also known as Team Avatar) traveled to the Northern Water Tribe in Book One: Water (also known as Season 1 of the animated series), where Aang is supposed to master Waterbending. Throughout the season, Aang discovers how the world has evolved and the significance of his mission.
Zuko, the exiled son of the Fire Lord, is rather concerned with the concept of honor and his duty to deliver the Avatar to his cruel (and just difficult to please) father. Hopefully, the live-action series will follow this plot in the future and depict Team Avatar embarking on their adventure with Prince Zuko close behind. However, as stated, nothing has yet been confirmed.
Avatar: The Last Airbender follows the most recent reincarnation of this great bender, an Air Nomad named Aang, who must let go of his youth to overcome the militaristic Fire country. The plot of Avatar: The Last Airbender is intricate, emotional, and (if executed well) could make an excellent live-action series. Ahead of the highly anticipated program, we’ve gathered all the juicy intel on the upcoming adaption.
