As Kreese says, “The story is just beginning.” Season 3 of Cobra Kai premieres January 8, 2021, only on Netflix. And gear up because Season 4 is officially training to join the fight. Cobra Kai Never Dies.
The series was created by Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald, and stars William Zabka and Ralph Macchio (both of whom are reprising their roles from The Karate Kid, and who also serve as co-executive producers of the series) along with Xolo Maridueña, Jacob Bertrand, Courtney Henggeler, Tanner Buchanan and Mary Mouser. Cobra Kai is set 34 years after the original Karate Kid film, re-examining the narrative from Johnny Lawrence‘s point of view, and his decision to reopen the Cobra Kai karate dojo leading to the rekindling of his old rivalry with Daniel LaRusso.
Season 2 saw Miyagi-Do and Cobra Kai dojos go to war with each other with both sides taking some pretty bad bumps. Johnny had his dojo stolen by his former sensei, and Miguel was left in the ICU. Season 3 will pick up right where season 2 left off.
The series makes the jump from YouTube to Netflix in its third season that will arrive in 2021.
