Netflix Announces 'Cobra Kai' Season 3 Premiere Date, Orders 4th Season

Netflix has announced the release date of Cobra Kai season three and the streaming service has also revealed that a fourth season has been ordered!

The first two seasons of the show originally premiered on YouTube Premium, but then Netflix acquired the show and it became a massive hit on there.

Season three will now premiere on Netflix on January 8, 2021.

Cobra Kai takes place 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, where a now successful Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) struggles to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of Mr. Miyagi, and must face his previous adversary, down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), who seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo.
