Albert Kim, who developed and served as showrunner on Netflix’s live-action “Avatar: The Last Airbender” series, is stepping down.

The first season’s co-executive producer Christine Boylan and executive producer/director/VFX supervisor Jabbar Raisani will now take over.

The pair will lead the show as executive producers going forward on the second and third seasons which Netflix has already ordered.

Boylan is an accomplished playwright and comic book writer for DC & Marvel. She’s also work on TV series such as Peacock’s “Poker Face,” Netflix’s “The Punisher” and Amazon’s “Citadel”.

Raisani directed episodes of Netflix’s “Lost in Space” and has done VFX work on shows from “Game of Thrones” to “Stranger Things”.

Kim will remain onboard as an executive producer and reportedly “wanted to explore new opportunities”. Kim has signed a deal with Disney to work as an executive producer on the “Percy Jackson” series and develop new projects.

Gordon Cormier, Kiawentiio, Ian Ousley, Dallas Liu, Ken Leung, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, and Daniel Dae Kim starred in the first season based on the iconic Nickelodeon series of the same name.
