Though the actions in the final episodes of Cobra Kai Season 3 wasn’t the best we saw, it competed with the best moments of Karate Kid films. Hence, it’ll take us all the way to the fourth season of Cobra Kai as the curtain is about to fall on the third one, and fans have started expecting much more from the Emmy Award-nominated Karate Kid spin-off. The third series of martial arts comedy-drama, debuting on the streaming service on New Year’s day, have been welcomed openly by the fans crazy for it.
Inspired by The Karate Kid films, the time period concerning Cobra Kai is 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. It centers around the deeds and the exploits of the now successful Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio, reprising his central role from the Karate Kid films) who struggles to maintain balance in his life without any supervision of Mr. Miyagi.
The series was first launched on YouTube Red, with the first two series being made available from 2018 to 2019. Both series were acquired by Netflix acquired in the summer of June 2020 and were streamed for a much wider audience, as it went to become the most-watched series on the platform.
Will There Season 4 of Cobra Kai?
Last October, there have been announcements by Netflix that there’s the possibility of the show getting a Season Four. From the tweets of series co-creator Jon Hurwitz, we came to know that the writer’s room for Season Four had ended.
The series is expected to begin filming in January 2021, with production expected to wrap up in April 2021. Though the release date of Season 4 of Cobra Kai hasn’t been officially declared, it would be reasonable to expect to see the series around December 2021 or January 2022.
It’s believed the new series will also consist of 10 episodes, as previous runs have done so. But this again hasn’t received any official nod from Netflix because other productions cutting series lengths short due to the Covid-19 pandemic; the final number of episodes could look different.
Who will Be In The Cast of Season 4 of Cobra Kai?
One of the important aspects of Cobra Kai is looking out for actors who will turn up, reprising their roles from the Karate Kid films. It is confirmed about Thomas Ian Griffith – who acted in the role of Terry Silver in Season 4. It is unclear about other guest actors from old movies such as Elisabeth Shue and Ali.
There are rumors going about the appearance of Hilary Swank – who appeared in the fourth film as Julie Pierce and is one of the biggest names who are involved with the franchise. Though nothing has been confirmed nor denied by Swank about her interest in this matter, she has acknowledged that an appearance would give her character a chance to have a “showdown” with Daniel LaRusso. The co-creators of the show told Cinema Blend that they had “spoken about” getting Swank involved before the premiere of Season 3.
So what we think as the outline of the story from Kreese is: the winner of the All Valley Karate Tournament will remain in the game, and the loser will leave the town. An all-out war against Kreese’s Cobra Kai can be seen in the tournament as the students of Daniel LaRusso’s Miyagi-do and Johnny Lawrence’s Eagle Fang have teamed up in the finals of Season Three.
And lastly, as said by co-creator Jon Hurwitz that they have spoken about literally each and every character that appeared in Miyagi-verse, so it’s obvious that we’ve spoken about Julie Pierce also whether she is returning or not to the series, that’s something we have to wait to find out.
One more thing which fans have been wondering is whether anyone could expect Cobra Kai to move in the Harry Potter direction since The Harry Potter series similarly had contents of fun and family-friendly in the first three parts! Anyway, only time can tell what’s in store; till then, stay tuned with us!
