After some debate in the ASN forums, we decided to contact Nickelodeon to see if we could get confirmation on a few things surrounding the "Day of Black Sun" movie event and the rest of season three. Consequently, we have confirmed with Nickelodeon that season three of Avatar will have 21 episodes, rather than the 20 episodes that seasons one and two had.

DoBS Tidbits: The "Day of Black Sun" movie event is two separate episodes broadcast together, somewhat analogous to the way "The Secret of the Fire Nation" event was handled in the second season. The two episodes for the "Day of Black Sun" are episode 310, "Day of Black Sun Part 1: The Invasion" and episode 311, "Day of Black Sun Part 2: The Eclipse".

In a confusing twist, though, although the episodes are separate (numbers 310 and 311 respectively), both are part of "Chapter 10" in Book Three: Fire. Up until now, each chapter has been an episode, but with "Day of Black Sun" this is no longer the case. Thanks to ASN forum user Jimothy for pointing this bit out to us!

Season Three Finale: Also revealed was that the Avatar season three (and show) finale will be comprised of episodes 318, 319, 320 and 321. No other information on episode titles or broadcast dates was available.

DoBS Nick Website: On a related note, Nickelodeon's "Day of Black Sun" website has been up and running for several days and contains a lot of neat stuff in preparation for the big event next week. Check it out and remember to tune in next Friday, November 30th at 8:00 PM EST for the "Day of Black Sun" movie event on Nickelodeon!
