Netflix's Cobra Kai Season 4 Production Has Begun, New Cast Revealed

Class is back in session at Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang. Season 4 of Netflix's Cobra Kai has started filming.


Karate class won't be in session on Netflix for quite a while, but there's good news for Cobra Kai fans. Filming on Season 4 of Netflix's Cobra Kai has officially begun. The streaming service announced the beginning of production by sharing a photo of the Season 4 premiere script, titled "Let's Begin." The news didn't stop there, as the streaming service also revealed some changes to the show's cast.

First and foremost, Peyton List (Tory) and Vanessa Rudio (Carmen) have both been made series regulars for Season 4, after previously appearing in recurring roles. That means Miguel's mother (and Johnny's love interest) should be around a lot more often, as will Samantha LaRusso's eternal rival, Tory.

Additionally, two new cast members have been added to the roster. Dallas Dupree Young, who recently appeared on Netflix's The Big Show Show, starring new AEW commentator Paul Wight, has been cast, as well as newcomer Oona O'Brien.

If Season 4 follows the same release pattern as Season 3, we won't be seeing the next installment of Cobra Kai until early 2022. While that might seem like too long to wait to resolve the cliffhanger viewers were left on, at least it won't be as long as the wait between Season 2 and 3, when the series moved from YouTube Premium to Netflix.

When it does return, at the very least fans will get to see exactly what happens when Johnny and Daniel fight together, against Sensei Kreese. While there will surely be plenty of impressive karate battles, it should also be pretty funny watching this martial arts odd couple figure out how to blend their two styles to teach one group of kids.
