Cobra Kai Season 4 returns to Netflix. Official release date and more.

Cobrai Kai Season 4 "Is Officially Wrapped". Here's What's to Come.

Actor William Zabka, Known as Johnny in The Karate Kid Movie and Cobra Kai Spinoff Netflix Series, Posted the news first on May 1st that Cobra Kai Season 4 was done filming.

"After 3 1/2 months of production, I'm proud to say #CobraKaiSeason4 is officially wrapped! #sentfrommysmartphone (eagle emoji)

This post was obviously a tongue in cheek reference to his character in the series who couldn't keep up with technology and was proverbially stuck in the 80's, alongside his taste in music, beer, cars, and movies (his grudge from The Karate Kid still apparently bothering him).

His last post had been from Jan 15th, so he obviously took a lot of time dedicated in character to the movie, leaving his 1.6M instagram followers with little updates on the series fate.

Cobra Kai Season 4 will

Cobra Kai was released on YouTube Red in 2020. However, given the recent trend of ad revenue from YTRed shows, this may switch to Google Play or similar advertisements instead. We will see how it progresses throughout the release date announcements and beyond that.

The actors have not yet been confirmed for what roles they'll be playing in Cobra kai Season 4 other than the return of The Karate Kid series alumni William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence and Martin Kove as Kreese.

Cobra kai was one of the best rated shows on YouTube Red, and has garnered many awards. It's likely that Cobra kai will be renewed for a 5th season (the karate kid movie spanned 3 movies, this series spanned 4 seasons).

It's highly likely that Johnny Lawrence's character will play a larger role in the show with his aging states as he is closer to William Zabka's actual age now compared to Daniel LaRusso - Ralph Macchio who plays "a teen" in the karate kid movie.

This also presents a problem because Ralph Macchio has been confirmed as only playing an appearance at the end of Season 4 unless they introduce a time traveling scenario similar to Teen Wolf or  Doctor Who where they can make the karate kid movie take place decades in the past, or they rewrite history.

The karate kid movie is a classic and one of the most famous karate movies ever made, it is illogical to try and re-write history unless there's some massive loophole to exploit by introducing a grandfather paradox that would allow for a reboot of sorts. That being said, having Johnny Lawrence turn into Daniel LaRusso with an aged Zabka playing his grandpa is a hilarious idea but probably not the way Hollywood wants to go after their latest karate kid remake film failed both critically and commercially.

It would be interesting if Cobra Kai Season 4 featured characters like Bill (possibly played by William Zabka, but doubt it because of his old age), Elisabeth Shue as Ali Mills (Daniel LaRusso's love interest who started dating in the karate kid 3 movie) in a cameo appearance in Season 4 to see where her life went.

It would be interesting too if Daniel LaRusso got married again and had kids - he could return at this point to meet his grandkids.

We think Johnny Lawrence will die offscreen between seasons or something similar. It is unlikely that William Zabka would leave the karate series for good after cobra kai season 4 even though he claims he wants out "for good" because ultimately the karate kid series is what made big time in Hollywood since 1984 and karate kid 2010, and he still appears in karate kid themed episodes of television.

It would be good if Cobra kai season 4 featured less karate and more life lessons such as Johnny learning how to get along with his family after finding out his father died. We'd love to see Daniel LaRusso's kids return too since they probably grew up without him after he was absent for so long because karate kid 3 presented a problem where Ali Mills went into hiding while expecting because her parents didn't like the idea of her marrying an old man (Daniel LaRusso) knowing that karate kid 1 ended with them still dating and not married yet.
