Korra will no longer be airing on television, but Nickelodeon has agreed to continue streaming the show online.

Starting on Friday August 8th at noon the episodes began airing weekly on the site. There are still more things to work out, but it seems like it will also still be available on Amazon Prime to Prime members. With Book Three nearly finished, the concerns about Book Four were raised and quickly dismissed as that was part of Nick’s deal, take it off the air but it will all be shown online. Fans cheered and were treated with a sneak peek at last Friday’s episode before it aired.

After the panel of Friday the cast, minus Seychelle who had to catch a flight, went to the Nickelodeon booth to sign for fans. The cast signed for over three hours for more than 250 fans! When asked, all of them explained that they feared that, with the shows schedule change, this might be the last con and so they wanted to make the most of it. And they really did, because they returned on Saturday for another two hours.

Producers are saying the show will take a bit of a “darker” turn this season when the show delves more into the underworld and the dark forces at play in the town.  In addition, according to Executive Producer Mark Goffman we will be seeing historical figures such as “Daniel Boone, Benedict Arnold, and then Benjamin Franklin plays a big part in this season starting with even the premiere. We’ll learn some of the history behind his inventions and what he was doing in England”.

We will also get to see some more lighter “fish out of water” moments for Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) as he learns to drive, rides on a motorcycle and more.

Hunky New Zealand Actor Karl Urban made his second appearance at this year’s Star Trek Convention put on by Creation Entertainment at the Rio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Urban, who plays Leonard “Bones” McCoy in the Star Trek reboot films directed by J.J. Abrams signed autographs, posed for photo ops and spoke to a packed crowd in the convention’s huge ballroom.

The actor took questions from fans about the next Star Trek film, which he was unable to say much about due to the secrecy surrounding the project and his recent turn on the now defunct television show “Almost Human”.

Urban said that he imagines with the success of the recent films,  he wouldn’t be surprised if they made it into a tv show sometimes soon.  A fan asked if he would be on the show if that happened and he said he was definitely open to the idea.  He also spoke about his love for the “Doctor Who” franchise and he actually called producers a few years ago and said “I love the show, can I be on it?”.  Unfortunately due to his shooting schedule for “Dredd” at the time, he was unable to do it but would still love to be on the show.

Karl also spoke about on-set pranks that he has been a part of, including the now-famous “neutron cream” prank played by Chris Pine and Simon Pegg on the cast during the filming of “Star Trek: Into Darkness”.  He also told the story of how he pranked “Lord of the Rings” co-star Viggo Mortensen by telling press in Spain that Viggo had purchased a goat farm and was going to make goat cheese.  The next day when Viggo spoke to the same press people, they didn’t want to talk about his film, they all wanted to know about the goat farm!  Urban said this was payback for a prank that Viggo had played on him 10 years prior during “Lord of the Rings.”  He advised Chris Pine and Simon Pegg to watch out because “I’m coming for you.”
