Cobra Kai is the spinoff series to The Karate Kid and is currently getting ready to release its season 4 in December
In what comes as exciting news, Netflix has announced that Cobra Kai is renewed for season 5. The news comes before the premiere of the fourth season which has fans across the world waiting for it.
A spin-off to The Karate Kid, a series of movies that surrounded the competitive world of martial arts, it focuses on revisiting the characters of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence in modern day, as the two launch their own dojo’s and mentor the next generation of karate kids.
Ralph Macchio as Daniel, and William Zabka as his nemesis Johnny, both reprise their roles from the original movie series.
The show which premiered on YouTube Red in 2018, until Netflix acquired it, has a cast that includes Mary Mouser, Tanner Buchanan, Courtney Henggeler, Xolo Maridueña and Peyton List. Showrunners Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg will continue to produce the fan favourite show.
The season 4 of Cobra Kai will pick up where it left off with the previous season, as we saw Daniel and Johnny combine their Dojo’s to take on the villainous John Kreese at the All Valley Tournament.
Ever since the show started streaming on Netflix, it has garnered a huge fan following. While the movie franchise was successful and had a cult following, Cobra Kai has once again made Ralph Macchio and William Zabka household names yet again.
The first three seasons of Cobra Kai are available to stream on Netflix and the fourth season is set for a release in December.
