Netflix has just released one of the most anticipated series of 2024. Avatar: The Last Airbender is the live-action adaptation of one of the most popular animated series in the United States, and it is clear that the streaming platform has done everything possible to make it the best. Leaving behind M. Night Shyamalan’s strange adaptation, Netflix wanted to make a much more faithful adaptation to the spirit of the original series, and it seems they have succeeded.

But has its premiere been a great success like One Piece or a failure like Death Note and other previous Netflix live actions? It is clear that the VOD service has made an effort for it to be one of its flagship products, but it is not so clear that it has succeeded. Next, we analyze if it has lived up to the circumstances.

Some enviable numbers, but enough?

Apparently, Netflix currently maintains the adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender in the Top 3 worldwide series. This is a fantastic number for any series, but it is not so clear that it is for one that was supposed to be the most successful on the platform. This means that we will have to wait for the official numbers from Netflix, but for now it doesn’t seem to have the huge success of One Piece.

However, these are not bad news for the series either. Without a doubt, the fiction has managed to achieve great numbers and it seems to have been very well received by the audience. In addition, its numbers are also quite good in terms of critics. It has achieved 60% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, and 75% from the audience. This makes it clear, once again, that it is not One Piece, but it is far from being a failure.
