Albert Kim, the last airbender, is stepping down

Netflix's “Avatar: The Last Airbender” series is seeing a change in leadership.

diverse I have learned that Albert Kim, who developed the series and served as showrunner for the first season, will be stepping down. Christine Boylan and Jabbar Raisani will lead the show as executive producers. Netflix has already announced the renewal of the show for two more seasons, ending with season three.

Boylan served as co-executive producer on the first season of The Last Airbender, while Rissani served as executive producer, director and visual effects supervisor. Kim will remain as executive producer for seasons two and three. According to a person familiar with the situation, Kim wanted to explore new opportunities after the multi-year development process on “Last Airbender” and signed a deal with Disney to serve as an executive producer on the “Percy Jackson” series while also developing new projects for that company.

Boylan's other credits include the popular Peacock series “Poker Face,” as well as shows like the Netflix-Marvel series “The Punisher,” “Citadel” on Amazon, and “Cloak and Dagger” on Freeform. She is also an accomplished playwright, having recently debuted her sci-fi play Analogue in London, as well as a comic book writer for DC, Marvel, BOOM Studios, and Tokyopop.

She is repped by WME, Art/Work Entertainment and attorneys Eric Hyman at Paul Hastings.

In addition to his work on “Last Airbender,” Raisani has done visual effects work on shows like “Lost in Space” and “Stranger Things” for Netflix as well as “Game of Thrones,” “The Flash” and many others. He also directed the “Lost in Space” episodes as well as the “Last Airbender” episodes.
