Alright, Karate Kid fans. We have some updates on the next instalment of Cobra Kai, so listen up. Netflix has revealed it will be releasing the fourth season of Cobra Kai this year.

Here’s everything we know so far.

What is Cobra Kai?

If you’re new to the series, Cobra Kai is a spin-off series based on the key characters (all of them) of the Karate Kid films. Focused on the rivalry that exists between leads Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio), the series is centred on local dojos and the kids who train within them.

Who is in the series?

One of the reasons this show is so well-loved is that it offers a heaping serve of nostalgia with the cast.

As mentioned above, William Zabka and Ralph Macchio have reprised their roles of Johnny and Daniel, but the series also features Martin Kove (John Kreese), Tamlyn Tomita, Yuji Okumoto (Chozen Toguchi) and even Elisabeth Shue (as Ali Mills).

It also stars Xolo Maridueña (as Miguel Diaz), Mary Mouser (as Samantha LaRusso), Jacob Bertrand (as Eli Moskowitz), Tanner Buchanan (as Robby Keene), Peyton List (as Tory Nichols) and Gianni DeCenzo (as Demetri).

When is Cobra Kai’s season 4 release date?

Netflix confirmed a while back that the series would return for season 4 in December 2021. But after that, we had radio silence for a good chunk of time.

Thankfully, during Netflix’s TUDUM event, the streaming service announced to fans a concrete release date for season 4 of Cobra Kai: December 31, 2021. Starting off the new year right, some might say.

  • Oh, god, why? I think of all the great shows that have been canned after one or two seasons, and this poorly scripted, woefully acted garbage gets 4 seasons? Are people’s viewing expectations really this bottom of the barrel?
