Netflix has picked up ‘Cobra Kai’ for season 3
The show is also now approved for season 4. Action-comedy series ‘Cobra Kai’ inspired from the iconic The Karate Kid film series was previously being streamed on YouTube Premium. However, in a pleasantly surprising move, the show is picked up by Netflix for season 3. The first two seasons are available to stream on Netflix. The move is well-deserving since YouTube had reported 5.4 million people tuning in to watch the show.
‘Cobra Kai’ follows the legend of the timeless The Karate Kid saga and introduces us to the events taking place thirty-four years after the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. The best part is that the series features Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, who played the original roles of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, respectively. In an attempt to relive his past, the grown-up version of penniless Johnny reopens Cobra Kai dojo, but this only reignites his rivalry with Daniel, who is now enjoying the lifestyle he once envied as a kid.
Cobra Kai Season 2 Recap
Season 2 introduced us to a whole new face of Johnny. The guy who was a villain through and through is shown to have his own pathos and a personality that’s compassionate but also easily manipulated by Kreese. After the misunderstandings, resentments, and decades of rivalry piles up, Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do have a brutal face-off. Miguel and Robby get into a full-blown brawl with Miguel ending up at the hospital.
What will happen in Cobra Kai Season 3?
We saw season 2 ending with Miguel in a hospital bed. Will he survive? Will he be paralyzed? What does it mean for Johnny’s future? How will he win his dojo back from Kreese?
But most importantly, how will the characters heal the cracks made in their relationships with each other? Season 3 will answer all these questions, including the fate of Kreese. The audience will very much like some justice served.
