The television continuation of the ’Karate Kid’ film franchise, “Cobra Kai” has been renewed for a 4th season. The show initially was available on YouTube Premium but it shifted to a new streaming home from the 3rd season.
The first two seasons are currently streaming on Netflix and has proven to have gathered a huge fanbase. On its debut week of August 24th, the series outranked “The Office” and “The Umbrella Academy” and landed up at the 2nd position on Nielsen’s weekly top 10 streaming ratings.
Season 3 of this action-drama series will debut on 8th January, 2021. The season’s release date has been disclosed in a promotional video on 2nd October 2020, at the end of which it also announces regarding the 4th season being ‘in training’. Netflix announced the renewal of this show for a season 4 even before Season 3 got released.
The TV series picks up 30 years after the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament of the original films and dives right back into the reignited rivalry between Ralph Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso and William Zabka’s Johnny Lawrence.
Cobra Kai Season 4 Release Date:
As no release dates have been disclosed yet, we are hoping the season to be released after a year of the release of Season 3 in January. 2021. The previous seasons were released in spring, unlike the release date of the 3rd season due to the shift of streaming home to Netflix.
So we are guessing the Season 4 to come around January or February 2022. Luckily for the Cobra Kai fans, the covid-19 induced production delays are behind us and most films and television shows have resumed production while maintaining health protocols of social distancing, sanitizing and mask-wearing.
What’s going to happen in Season 4?
It’s hard to say what is going to happen in Season 4 before the release of Season 3. But a tweet from co-creator Jon Hurwitz surely makes us excited and makes us expect another cliff-hanger.
“ I cannot wait for you to see Cobra Kai Season 3 Finale. But I especially can’t wait for you to see the last 90 seconds. People are gonna go nuts. I know I do every time”
This surely makes us eagerly wait to see how the show sets another top level.
Cobra Kai Season 4 cast:
Although we are still left to see how Season 3 plays out, season 4 is surely going to have Johnny Lawrence (Zabka) and Daniel LaRusso(Macchio) as the two protagonists. The other vital members being Miguel (Xolo Mariduena); Daniel’s daughter, Samantha (Mary Mouser); wife, Amanda( Courtney Henggeler) and Johnny’s son, Robby Kreese (Tanner Buchanan). Hawk (Jacob Bertrand) is an important part of the show, but his character might turn into a villain in Season 3 as his character has been teetering off the rails. Another classic film character, Sensei John Kreese (Martin Krove) is also speculated to be a huge part of Season 3.
