Cobra Kai will move to Netflix for its third season according to multiple reports. This news comes just a few weeks after reports surfaced that the show was being shopped to multiple streaming outlets.
“The appeal of The Karate Kid saga is timeless, and Cobra Kai picks up right where it left off without missing a beat,” Netflix VP of Original Series Brian Wright said.

“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,” Wright adds.
Netflix has not yet announced a release date for the show’s new season. Ralph Macchio and William Zabka are set to reprise their leading roles of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. Martin Kove will also return as Sensei John Kreese.
Season two left off on an intense cliffhanger as members of LaRusso and Lawrence’s schools fought to a dramatic end that seemingly left one student in the hospital. The first two seasons are currently available on YouTube Premium.
