Cobra Kai Season 3 Heads To Netflix With Season 1 And 2
The acclaimed YouTube series will see its next season premiere on Netflix, rather than YouTube.
The YouTube Premium series Cobra Kai will fight another day. While the series won't be continuing its run on YouTube, it has found a new home at Netflix, which is where Season 3 will debut. In addition, Seasons 1 and 2 of Cobra Kai will arrive to Netflix later this year.
The news comes after a report that Sony was looking to find the Karate Kid sequel series a new home. At the time, it was said YouTube Premium was willing to air Season 3 but would not order any further episodes. Instead, the show has a new life on Netflix.
"The appeal of The Karate Kid saga is timeless, and Cobra Kai picks up right where it left off without missing a beat," Netflix vice president of original series Brian Wright said in a statement. "The rivalry between Daniel and Johnny is one for the ages, and the show has a ton of heart and is a lot of fun. We can't wait to introduce a new generation of fans to Cobra Kai and are thrilled to be its new home around the world."
Now, at long last, fans of the show will find out what happens after the Season 2 cliffhanger. We talked to star Xolo Maridueña about that epic ending back when it aired in May 2019 and discussed Season 3 with the cast at Comic-Con last year. Finally, though, we are much closer to seeing how the story will unfold--and what will send Daniel LaRusso back to Japan for the first time since Karate Kid 2.
With the entire third season already filmed, we now wait to find out when Netflix plans to debut the new episodes. Thus far, all the streaming service has said is it'll follow the addition of Season 1 and 2. Meanwhile, among the new arrivals on Netflix in July are the Karate Kid movies--and they're coming later this week.
