In the Nickelodeon animated series, Avatar Kuruk was briefly alluded to in Book 1, when Avatar Aang encountered Koh the Face-Stealer in the Spirit World. Kuruk made a full appearance in Book 3 when he told Aang about the moment he defined his time as the Avatar. But while The last Airbender provided Avatar of the Water Tribe with only a minor role in its three seasons, rumors arose early on that the Netflix series would give it a larger role.

A casting call was held in April for someone to play the role of a “legendary warrior from the past”. The character description resembled many of the key details from Avatar Kuruk. Notably, the casting call also specified that the character will appear in at least two episodes. It was later reported that actor Meegwun Fairbrother will play Avatar, but it is unknown how many episodes he will appear in and how his role will compare to his animated counterpart.
