At Comic-Con, we sat down with show creators Bryan Konietzko and Michael Dante DiMartino, as well as cast members Janet Varney (Korra), PJ Byrne (Bolin) and David Faustino (Mako) to find out how they approached the intensity of the first season and what they've got in store for the next three.

Fortunately, we can now rest easy in the knowledge that everyone's favorite Avatar is on her way back. Tomorrow, Nickelodeon is launching the Legend of Korra: Enhanced Experience, a free app that'll give fans a peek at the upcoming season -- including character designs for Korra's iceberg-throwing cousins.
