Cobra Kai fans are in for a treat as Netflix has announced the premiere date for Season 3. In a date announcement video teaser, the streaming giant marked the third season for a release on January 8, 2021, with Season 4 in training.
According to Netflix, 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 3 finds everyone reeling in the aftermath of the violent high school brawl between their dojos, which has left Miguel in a precarious condition.
“While Daniel searches for answers in his past and Johnny seeks redemption, Kreese further manipulates his vulnerable students with his own vision of dominance. The soul of the Valley is at stake, and the fate of every student and sensei hangs in the balance.”
Cobra Kai originally premiered on YouTube Premium in 2018, with a second season releasing in 2019. However, in summer 2020 Netflix acquired the series, with YouTube moving away from scripted original programming.
Since then the action-comedy web series has been a viewership success for the streaming giant, by consistently holding the topmost position on Netflix’s self-published charts.
