The problem is keeping the series fresh. There's really nothing else to do. TLA really showed how cool firebending/earthbending villains were, the first two seasons of Korra had waterbending villains, the third had an airbender, and the fourth had a metalbender.
We've had villains who used lightning, villains who used lava, villains who could fly, villains who shot explosions out of their face... we've had the lot. Hell, we've even had THE LITERAL GOD OF CHAOS. There's nothing left to do outside of the Spirit World and even then the Spirit World is a place where you physically are incapable of bending so... it'd be kind of a let-down and is probably why we didn't see much of it in either Aang's or Korra's series.
What is more... how the fuck do you top that? It's certainly possible to top the Giant Mecha Monster with the Spirit-Laser-Beam-of-Death. Korra did so by first breaking the spectacle creep and going for a much smaller, more compact story focussing around Amon and then let the spectacle grow from there instead of trying to instantly top the fight with Ozai.
So it's possible... but how would you do it?
Atop that there's the simple fact that unless Korra dies young the next Avatar will be born in a time roughly similar to our own, which would be interesting, but it would also be highly disappointing and it would diminish the sense of fantasy a great deal. What would the music be like? What would the art-style be like? How would bending play into daily life and would it even matter anymore in the face of non-bending technology that would likely, by that point at least, be widespread?
I guess you could try to tell a story about Bending finding it's place in this new world but at the same time that's a really depressing concept to handle, the idea that magic has become obsolete in the face of technology...
Unless the Avatar Universe develops a LOT of depth another series is just not viable.
