Cobra Kai will be back on Netflix this year.
The series will be back on the streaming service on December 31st!
This news was announced today at the inaugural TUDUM: A Netflix Global Fan Event.
“Inspired by the first beat you hear when you watch a show or movie on Netflix, TUDUM is our first-ever global fan event,” the network says of the event.
“Today, over 145 of Netflix’s biggest stars and creators from around the world — representing over 100 series, films, and specials — are joining the virtual stage for an exciting day full of exclusives and first looks, including the date announcement teaser from Cobra Kai.”
Cobra Kai takes place over 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament with the continuation of the inescapable conflict between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka).
Season 4 finds the Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang dojos joining forces to take down Cobra Kai at the All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament… and whoever loses must hang up their gi.
As Samantha and Miguel try to maintain the dojo alliance and Robby goes all in at Cobra Kai, the fate of the Valley has never been more precarious.
What tricks does Kreese have up his sleeve? Can Daniel and Johnny bury their decades-long hatchet to defeat Kreese? Or will Cobra Kai become the face of karate in the valley?
