'Cobra Kai' Writers Talk Possibly Bringing Hilary Swank's 'Karate Kid' Character To Series

There’s a chance that Hilary Swank might reprise her role as Julia Pierce in Cobra Kai.

The writers on the series, which is a continuation of the rivalry and friendship between Ralph Macchio‘s Daniel LaRusso and William Zabka‘s Johnny Lawrence, opened up about the chances of Hilary‘s Next Karate Kid character popping up on the Netflix series.

“We always say that our show takes place in the Miyagi-verse…in our minds, any story in which Mr. Miyagi was a character, with Pat Morita playing Mr. Miyagi I should say, is canon to our world,” co-creator Jon Hurwitz shared with CinemaBlend. “The Next Karate Kid is a part of our universe.”

He added, “We believe that the events of that movie happened…In terms of that movie, it has its pluses and minuses. One of the things that’s really special about it is it’s very early work for Hilary Swank and she’s gone on to be one of the great actors in Hollywood.”

“Her performance is great in that movie and her chemistry with Pat Morita is fantastic.”

Jon adds that Hilary‘s character is one of the many characters that they talk about in the writer’s room.

“So it’s obvious that we’ve spoken about Julie Pierce,” he shared. “As to whether or not she’ll return to the series, that’s something you’ll just have to wait to find out.”

Cobra Kai, seasons one, and two, are streaming now on Netflix. Season three is set to debut in January.

One of Hilary‘s followers then took to the comments to call her out for sharing her political opinion.

“I don’t think it’s ever smart for celebrities to share their political opinions, 71 million Americans who voted for Trump this election…. Yeah focus…. Because social media and the news do not announce the election,” the follower wrote. “It’s different this time around because we have authoritarians in big tech censoring conservatives.
