At the beginning of October, Netflix added the two seasons of Cobra Kai to its catalog, after its initial premiere on YouTube garnered all kinds of praise. The television sequel to Karate Kid gave rise to a considerable fandom in a very short time and the platform was not going to miss the opportunity: as it was done with the rights, it announced that the third season would be released on January 8, 2021, and that also already he had renovated it for a fourth.
However, and in keeping with its habit of promoting big New Year premieres, Netflix has made a change of plans.
In this way, the new chapters will arrive a week earlier than planned, on January 1, which will start in 2021. Since then, the platform’s catalog will have ten new episodes where the story of Cobra Kai will continue wherever the We leave, with Miguel (Xolo Maridueña) hospitalized after the brutal high school skirmish, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) on his way to redemption and Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) about to march to Okinawa in search of answers.
The third season of Cobra Kai will continue to strengthen its ties with the original Karate Kid films by having two returns: Tamlyn Tomita and Yuji Okumoto as Kumiko and Chozen, which were featured in Karate Kid II. Cobra Kai is a series created by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg from the characters of Robert Mark Kamen.
