Strike first, strike hard, no mercy! Netflix is striking first in its renewal of Cobra Kai, Variety reports. The Karate Kid TV continuation has been renewed by the streaming giant for a fourth season ahead of its Season Three debut. Karate lovers, rejoice! 

Now, Cobra Kai picks up more than 30 years after Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) beat Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) in the All Valley Karate Tournament. LaRusso is a successful businessman with a beautiful family and an opulent home. Lawrence is living paycheck-to-paycheck when he decides to revive the defunct Cobra Kai, bringing in a new crop of kids eager to learn the ways of the karate sensei. Naturally, the heated rivalry between LaRusso and Lawrence is reignited. 

The first two seasons initially streamed on YouTube Premium prior to its move to Netflix. The Karate Kid installment quickly skyrocketed to success, even outranking The Umbrella Academy and The Office

Season Two ended with our core characters reeling from the brawl between Robby (Tanner Buchanan) and Miguel (Xolo Maridueña). Lawrence’s old sensei John Kreese (Martin Kove) is attempting to sway the former’s group to his side. He’s hellbent on reviving the Cobra Kai of old. 

Cobra Kai stars Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Xolo Maridueña, Tanner Buchanan, Courtney Henggeler, and Mary Mouser. Season Three is slated for January 8, 2021.
