Netflix is giving Cobra Kai fans a late Christmas present on January 1st! The entire third season will be dropping on the first day of the new year! Perfect for bingeing while you nurse your New Year’s Eve hangover.
The day after the season streams, the cast of “Cobra Kai” will appear on “The Netflix Afterparty” to talk about the latest season of their martial arts comedy alongside hosts David Spade, Fortune Feimster and London Hughes.
“Cobra Kai” is the continuation series from the 1980 film franchise “The Karate Kid,” starring Ralph Macchio and William Zabka in their respective reprised roles of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. Now adults, Daniel is searching for answers about his past while Johnny seeks redemption for things he did in his own past. The once-rivals now have to team up to save the dojo from John Kreese (Martin Kove), who has taken over as sensei with his infamous “no mercy” philosophy.
The third season also finds everyone reeling from the aftermath of the violent brawl between dojos, which left Miguel (Xolo Mariduena) in a coma. The stakes in its upcoming season have never been higher, with, as the streamer puts it, the soul of the Valley at stake, and the fate of every student and sensei hanging in the balance.
“Cobra Kai” also stars Courtney Henggeler, Tanner Buchanan, Mary Mouser, Jacob Bertrand, Gianni Decenzo and Peyton List. Yuji Okumoto and Tamlyn Tomita will also appear.
The series started off as a YouTube original in its first two seasons before jumping to Netflix.
