Cobra Kai Season 3 was a great way to kick off the new year and, as you would expect, fans happen to be craving another season. When it’s going to probably be a while before we see the further adventures of Daniel LaRusso, Johnny Lawrence and their karate students, we now know Season 4 has officially kicked off production. And with this major announcement, comes another bit of news, as Netflix has confirmed the show is just adding two new cast members.
Netflix has confirmed that Cobra Kai Season 4 has included Dallas Dupree Young and Oona O’Brien in recurring characters. According to Variety, Young will play with Kenny, a bullied child who attempts out karate in an attempt to learn self-defense. Meanwhile, O’Brien will perform a different kind of function throughout the character of Devon. The character is called a potential karate student who is equally studious and competitive — but she also possesses a fairly quick temper.
In addition to the new developments, Cobra Kai also made moves with a number of its established celebrities. The streamer demonstrated that both Peyton List and Vanessa Rubio have been upgraded to show regulars for Season 4. List plays proficient yet hot-headed Cobra Kai student Tory Nichols, whilst Rubio plays Carmen Diaz, the sweet and concerned mother of Miguel Diaz. It’s great to see both are being bumped up, and it is a little surprising that it is only just happening since they’ve played critical roles on the show within a previous couple of seasons.
Cobra Kai Season 3 marked a major turning point for its Karate Kid movie series. By the end of the season, Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso resolved to combine forces against John Kreese’s Cobra Kai. Season 4 will probably see both sides duke it out in the impending All-Valley Karate Tournament.
Ahead of the event though, it is a safe bet that both dojos will be planning to recruit new students, and this is where Dallas Dupree Young’s Kenny and Oona O’Brien’s Devon may arrive in. Such a development could be a great subplot for the entire year, particularly when you consider how high the stakes will probably be moving forward. If this comes to pass, Kenny and Devon could end up becoming game-changers.
The inclusion of the All-Valley Tournament is all we know in the method of plot details as soon as it comes to Cobra Kai Season 4. But never worry, because the manufacturers have programs mapped out to the fourth season and beyond. So they’re sure to have some major surprises in store for fans.
It’s always great to see new faces on Cobra Kai, especially fresh up-and-comers such as Dallas Dupree Young and Oona O’Brien. They should help to shake things up in what is primed to be an exciting season.
