American drama series “Cobra Kai” is based on The Karate Kid film series. “Cobra Kai” is a Creation of Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald. It stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka who have also featured in The Karate Kid. Cobra Kai revolves around 34 years after the original Karate Kid film and reviews the narrative from Johnny Lawrence’s perspective. Reopening the Cobra Kai karate dojo leads to his old rivalry with Daniel LaRusso.
The series debuted on YouTube Red with two seasons and ran between 2018 and 2019. Cobra Kai received a huge hit on YouTube Premium but it is moving away from its original platform. Production studio Sony TV broke a deal with Netflix. YouTube Premium “Cobra Kai” now lays all its rights to Netflix. Hence Netflix will probably stream future seasons now onwards.
In 2020, Netflix acquired the rights of these two seasons and will release them later this year. Season three of the series will exclusively premiere on Netflix, though the date is not determined yet.
Release Date of Cobra Kai Season 3:
Netflix renewed Cobra Kai season 3 and planned to premiere it this year. However, the series is going to debut on the new streaming platform, it’s not clear if there’ll be any changes. Filming of season 3 finished in 2019 though and post-production is also completed. So, there’s nothing to think that coronavirus outbreak will impact its possible release date. We expect that Cobra Kai will come back with season three anytime in 2020.
The Cast of Cobra Kai Season 3:
Besides executive producers and stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, the old cast will return for the upcoming season. It includes Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz, Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso, and Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene. Ali Mills Schwarber who appeared in the previous season will return as well.
Expected Plot of Cobra Kai Season 3:
In season 2 finale, Robby to Johnny left a hint for where the show can go forward. He and Daniel could learn many things from each other. After the tragedy with children and students, season 3 may determine if two rivals will keep their differences aside. It will explore Johnny and Daniel learn to work together for a common good. Daniel will head to Mr. Miyagi’s hometown, Okinawa and it is confirmed. However, we anticipate that season three will reveal the origins of both Miyagi’s and Cobra Kai’s martial art philosophies. It has a direct link to Daniel’s Okinawa excursion.
The Storyline of Cobra Kai:
After 34 years of Johnny Lawrence’s defeat in the 1984 All-Valley Karate Tournament, he now works in construction. He is in his 50s and lives in an apartment in Reseda, Los Angeles abandoning his son and ex-girlfriend. After losing his job, Johnny rescues his teenage neighbor Miguel Diaz from bullies using his karate skills. After this incident, Miguel’s mother asks Johnny to train her son. When Johnny finally agrees and reopens the Cobra Kai karate dojo, he reawakens his rivalry with Daniel.
In season two, we’ve seen tension between the students of Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do dojos ended up into a war. The chaos is unlike the Karate kid film series. Both Daniel and Johnny realize their massive failures as sanseis in the final shot.
