Today we bring to you Cobra Kai season 3 release date, cast, and plot: Cobra Kai is an American action martial art comedy-drama web television series set 34 years after the original Karate Kid film, and re-examines the narrative from Johnny Lawrence’s point of view (placing it within the “minor-character elaboration” genre). The series created by Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald, was initially released on Youtube Premium. It has two seasons until now with the first season premiering on 2nd May 2018.
Cobra Kai Season 3 Release Date
The third season was wrapped up in September 2019. It has officially been confirmed that Cobra Kai release date is 2021. It is worth noting that the producers haven’t revealed the exact date of release though.
Additionally, Netflix has purchased the rights for season 1 and season 2 of Cobra Kai which were initially with Youtube Premium. It had been earlier announced on June 23 that the upcoming seasons will be aired on Netflix. One of the Cobra Kai’s writers, Hayden Schlossberg, tweeted that “I feel like the release date is to be determined but to be determined quickly.”.
On the other hand, it’s also clear that Cobra Kai has to be dubbed in over 30 languages right now, and above all, that’s for all three seasons. This will most likely cause a delay in the exact release date announcement for Cobra Kai season 3.

The first two seasons along with a longer trailer of Cobra Kai are expected to arrive soon. This will also help in gathering an audience for the upcoming season in the meantime.

Set 30 years after the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, Johny Lawrence’s decision to reopen the Cobra Kai karate dojo leads to the rekindling of his old rivalry with Daniel LaRusso. Life has not been good for Johnny Lawrence for the past 30 years. Hence, he is a dead-beat father, a drunkard fired from his job. Although upon rescuing an asthmatic kid from a gang of bullies, Johnny reopens the Cobra Kai karate dojo. He consequently becomes the new sensei to outsiders and bullied children.
When his long time karate rival, Daniel LaRusso, discovers that Cobra Kai has reopened, it reignites the feud between them. In fact, Daniel even went as far as to open his own karate dojo, Miyagi-Do, to stop Cobra Kai’s influence in San Fernando Valley.
The second series also saw an all-out war between the Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do dojos, only highlighting Daniel and Johnny’s failures as sensei.
William Zabka Reveals Key Details (Remember Johnny Lawrence from the Karate Kid?)
“Playing Johnny and Kreese again at this level and in this show has been a dream,” Cobra Kai actor William Zabka recently stated in an interview, “Johnny gave Kreese a chance, and he’s a father figure in many ways. [But] he downloaded a lot of not good advice to Johnny and Johnny is trying to work that out, so it’s like when you love somebody, but they’re not good for you. It hurts to push away, and I think the end of Season 2 kind of says everything of the result of this kind of father-son dysfunctional relationship, semi-abusive, but through each of their points of view is good intention.”
