Watch: Cobra Kai Season 4 Trailer Lands as Showrunner Shares Big News


The fourth season of Netflix’s acclaimed Karate Kid sequel series, Cobra Kai, is set to premiere on the service at the end of the month, and the streamer has released a debut trailer.


Cobra Kai takes place over 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament with the continuation of the inescapable conflict between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka). The series has been a hit with old and new fans, mainly because it respects the original material and doesn’t insult the original fans of the series with woke politics or radical changes to the characters.


Ahead of its season 4 premiere, Cobra Kai was renewed by Netflix for another installment, which will not be the last. Showrunner Josh Heald announced that Cobra Kai season 5 is not the end of the series. When asked how much story is left to tell, Heald confirmed there is more Cobra Kai to come beyond season 5. Revealing that season 5 is “another enormous season,” Heald teased that the upcoming season will unfold events fans haven’t seen before on the show.



Season 4 finds the Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang dojos joining forces to take down Cobra Kai at the All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament… and whoever loses must hang up their gi. As Samantha and Miguel try to maintain the dojo alliance and Robby goes all in at Cobra Kai, the fate of the Valley has never been more precarious. What tricks does Kreese have up his sleeve? Can Daniel and Johnny bury their decades-long hatchet to defeat Kreese? Or will Cobra Kai become the face of karate in the valley?



Every legacy. Every rivalry. Leads to this. Cobra Kai season 4 debuts on Netflix on December 31.
