The Netflix live-action adaptation of the hit animated fantasy series Avatar: The Last Airbender has been renewed for two more seasons.

Avatar’s official Facebook page shared a poster with the numbers two and three that reference the Earth and Fire colors.

Netflix, in a post, said Avatar reached 41.1 million views in the first 11 days since its debut on Feb. 22. It’s No. 1 in 76 countries and in the top 10 in 92.

The streaming giant also shared a video in which cast member Daniel Dae Kim, who portrayed Fire Lord Ozai, is speaking with his colleagues.

Kim said Netflix reached out to him and he's supposedly bringing bad news about Netflix "not [being] able to announce a Season 2."

“They said they’re not able to announce a Season 2 because they’d like to announce Season 2 and 3 being renewed,” Kim told the cast members, who then shouted with much delight.

“We’re going to see more of each other over the next few years,” he said.

The first season has eight episodes, and there’s no information yet on whether the second and third seasons will have the same number of episodes.

Avatar follows Aang (Gordon Cormier), the young Avatar, as he learns to master the four elements (Water, Earth, Fire, and Air) to restore balance to a world threatened by the terrifying Fire Nation.

Other cast members include Daniel Dae Kim as Fire Lord Ozai, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as General Iroh, Ken Leung as Commander Zhao, Elizabeth Yu as Princess Azula, Dallas Liu as Prince Zuko, Kiawentiio as Katara, and Ian Ousley as Sokka.

In 2010, a live-action adaptation titled The Last Airbender attempted to retell the story but was met with bad reviews.
