Start of Cobra Kai- the hype and Netflix adaptation
Cobra Kai was first debuted on YouTube premium on May 2, 2018, created by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg. Due to its popularity, Netflix acquired the series in June 2020. The 3rd season of Cobra Kai premiered on January 1, 2021.
When will season 4 Premier?
In a series of tweets creator Hayden Schlossberg teased that post production of Cobra Kai season may 4 be done and is only waiting to air on Netflix at the end of this year. In the tweet he says, “I’ve been watching and re-watching the all Valley tournament in season four. There are so many times when I get revved up and almost lose it. It’s like every rocky fight rolled into one and built up with so much hype and anticipation leading to an explosion of nonstop action.” In late 2021 or early 2022, fans will get the awaited Cobra Kai season 4.
In June 2021, Netflix published a teaser of Cobra Kai season 4. The teaser shows the return of Thomas Ian Griffith as Terry Silver. Silver had a mischievous role in The Karate Kid Part III. His appearance was foreshadowed at the end of season 3 when the vindictive Kreese makes a mysterious phone call. Looks like in Season 4 this pair will go out to get not just LaRusso, but also Kreese’ former protégé Johnny Lawrence.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly before Silver’s return was confirmed, co-creator Jon Hurwitz teased what might come. “At the end of the season, you saw Kreese make a phone call,” he explained. “You could guess who might’ve been on the other end of that call based off of the photo that he was looking at there. But we can’t really speak to how Terry Silver would respond to that call—or whoever was on the other end of the line would respond to that call.”
What can happen in Season 4?
Season 3 has managed to turn the heat up even higher as the hallway battle erupted into full warfare across the three dojos for the soul of the valley. In turn of events a deal was struck between the three senseis and this war would come to its end at the next All Valley Tournament. Whichever dojo becomes victorious would be the only one left to teach karate to the valley. The season also featured a seemingly disconnected flashback to Crease’s origin where he had to brutally defeat his military commander in order to save one of his friends. This friend is implied to be Terry Silver from The Karate Kid part 3. He was the guy who manipulated Daniel into joining Cobra Kai back in the day. Chances are he’ll come in with more students. We can tell the all Valley tournament is going to be badass and might just be the best tournament we have ever seen.
Future of Cobra kai after season 4
Cobra Kai Season 4 will also continue to set the stage for a possible endgame for the series as the creators are already thinking about Season 5 and beyond. But one thing for sure, Cobra Kai season 4 is set to blow fans away.
