When Daniel LaRusso delivered a flawless front kick to Johnny Lawrence’s face to win the match and take the title in The Karate Kid, we believed we had seen the last of them. However, a new show started airing in 2017 to indicate that these adversaries were still around.
Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg developed Cobra Kai based on Robert Mark Kamen’s The Karate Kid movie series. The All Valley Karate Tournament of 1984 takes place 34 years later in the television series. The series retells the “Miyagi-Verse” story from Lawrence’s perspective as he attempts to atone for his sins by rebuilding the notorious Cobra Kai dojo and reignites his old feud with a now-prosperous Daniel LaRusso. The Karate Kid series stars Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Martin Kove, Yuji Okumoto, and Thomas Ian Griffith return in Cobra Kai to reprise their legendary roles.
On May 2, 2018, YouTube Red debuted Cobra Kai. On April 24, 2019, the second season of the program was made available on YouTube Premium. However, it was revealed that the show would move off of YouTube and onto another site following the creation of the third season, which was scheduled to be released on the platform in 2020.
It was stated that this was done because the producers needed a platform that would allow them to keep that option open because Youtube was not renewing the show for a fourth season. It was revealed on June 22, 2020, that the show would transfer to Netflix and bring the third season with it. On January 1st, 2021, Netflix (Money Heist: Korea Season 2) launched the third season of Cobra Kai. Netflix (She Season 3) confirmed an early renewal for a fourth season on October 2, 2020, before Season 3 was made available. The fourth season debuted on December 31, 2021.
Cobra Kai has earned a ton of praise from the critics and has a large following on YouTube and Netflix (Bastard Season 2). The program has won and been nominated for a number of honors, including a “Outstanding Comedy Series” nomination at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards. Here is all you need to know about Cobra Kai Season 5, which is quickly approaching.
