Netflix is etching in a fourth season of hit series, Cobra Kai, as the trades reported on Friday. The news comes following the show’s transition from YouTube Premium to Netflix as of August 28, ultimately climbing its way up to the streamer’s top ten list.
Spun-off from John G. Avildsen’s 1984 drama, The Karate Kid, actors William Zabka and Ralph Macchio reprise their roles as Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso, in a story that explores the coming-of-age rivalry among today’s generation of martial arts students when the down-and-out Lawrence reopens the notorious Cobra Kai, imploring LaRusso to respond in turn with the rebirth of Miyagi-Do.
Cast members Xolo Maridueña, Mary Mouser and Tanner Buchanan are among the lot expected to return for season three when it premieres exclusively on Netflix beginning January 8, 2021.
Zabka and Macchio serve as co-exec producers on the hit series which hails from Counterbalance Entertainment, Overbrook Entertainment and Sony Pictures Television.
