The Legend of Korra Book 4 is set to premiere soon, and fans are wondering what’s in store.

Season 3 ended with some stunning events, including the Red Lotus administering the metallic poison to Korra.

But Korra fought back, overpowering her captors and fighting Zaheer in the sky. Jinora then led the airbenders to use an air vortex to pull Zaheer out of the sky and capture him, while Suyin metalbends the poison out of Korra.

Two weeks later, a wheel-chair bound Korra watches Tenzin anoint Jinora as airbending master.

A clip from season 4 shows Bolin, Mako, Tenzin, and others gathered around Korra as she departs to the Southern Water tribe.

“I’m going to write you so many letters,” Bolin says.

“I’ll only be gone a couple days,” Korra says, accompanied by her family.

“I don’t you want to worry about a thing while you’re gone, your recovery should be your number 1 concern. Jinora, the airbenders, and I have everything under control.”

The rest of the clip shows her in a nightmare, then waking up.

Season 4 will premiere on Nick.com on Friday, October 4. The show will continue to be broadcast on Nickelodeon’s website and not on television.

<p>NYCC Korra Panel, Thursday 10/9 at 5:15!BEHOLD: NEW HAIR! Korra's design gets backs to its roots in Book 4, with a bob cut like the one Joaquim did in his original concept of her.

A new episode will be released every Friday.

Co-creator Bran Konietzko recently revealed that Korra will have shorter hair this season.

“Korra’s design gets backs to its roots in Book 4, with a bob cut like the one Joaquim did in his original concept of her. It wouldn’t be the Avatarverse without some hairstyle changes, now would it?” he said via Tumblr.

Also, voice actor Daniel Dae Kim confirmed to fans on Reddit that he’ll be returning as Hiroshi Sato, Asami’s father who fatefully followed the lead Equalist Amon.

And Kuvira may be one of the villains in the last season, with another clip from season 4 showing her standing guard over Earth Kingdom prisoners.
