About Netflix’s Cobra Kai Series
Cobra Kai is an action comedy-drama web series based on the beloved film series, The Karate Kid. The Cobra Kai series was created in the United States by John Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald. The first two seasons of Cobra Kai were released on YouTube Premium, formerly YouTube Red, in 2018 and 2019, respectively. On June 22, 2020 it was announced that the series would be moving to Netflix where season three will be released.
Cobra Kai season 3: What will the storyline be?
Set 34 years after the original Karate Kid film, Cobra Kai follows character Johnny Lawrence following his defeat in the 1984 All-Valley Karate Tournament. The now 50 year-old Johnny lives in Los Angeles, California and works as a part-time handyman. After losing his job for getting into an argument with a customer, he decided to reopen the Cobra Kai dojo. His first student is Miguel Diaz, Johnny’s teenage neighbor who was frequently bullied by a gang of rich kids. With Miguel’s newly learned skills, he end up beating up his bullies in the school lunchroom which causes dozens of students to flock to Johnny’s dojo.
Though there have not been many details released about the Cobra Kai season 3 story, we expect the storyline to pick up where season 2 left off. Without spilling too many secrets about the ending of season 2, we expect to learn more about the fate of Johnny’s Cobra Kai dojo business, Johnny’s relationship with Carmen as well as Miguel’s recovery.
