YouTube-Turned-Netflix Hit ‘Cobra Kai’ Returns For Fourth Season In December

Cobra Kai, the Karate Kid sequel series that was born as a YouTube Original and currently lives on Netflix, is teasing its fourth season, which is set to premiere in December.

Cobra Kai, which YouTube tossed up for grabs amid a move away from scripted originals, follows the rivalry between Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso decades after the All Valley Karate tournament — for which the latest teaser (below) is named. The series stars Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, and Xolo Maridueña — who was most recently cast as Blue Beetle in HBO Max’s forthcoming film of the same name based on the DC Comics superhero.

Cobra Kai earned four Emmy noms for its third season, which featured appearances from familiar faces from the franchise, including Elisabeth Shue as Ali Mills, Entertainment Tonight reports. Season four will see Thomas Ian Griffith return as Terry Silver.

“All the OG cast members that have come back have been so wonderful and brought such A-games that there’s no door that’s closed in the Cobra Kai universe,” Macchciot told the outlet.
