Cobra Kai is as big as ever with a highly-anticipated fourth season set to land on Netflix later this year. And, during a Paley Front Row panel posted by Yahoo! (and moderated by Collider's Perri Nemiroff), the series creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg teased that the upcoming fourth season will be even bigger than it's predecessors:
All I can say is it was really important for us to end season 3 the way we did with a kind of like ‘yah’ as a feeling as opposed to ‘aw’ where season 2 went. And we want to deliver that feeling. We want to keep providing the dopamine that generates that good feeling. We want to make sure we’re delivering on goosebumps, on tears, on belly laughs, and fist bumps. It’s the same recipe with different tastes and everything else, but it’s even bigger so we’re really, really proud of what we’re making so far. I can’t wait for you to see what everybody’s doing.
The series began thirty-four years after the climax of the original 1984 classic film The Karate Kid in which Daniel LaRusso (Played by Ralph Macchio) defeated Johnny Lawrence (Played by William Zabka) in the 1984 All Valley Tournament. After three seasons of their rivarly stirring up a battle between themselves, their kids, and their respective dojos, season 3 ended with the former rivals uniting their kids to prepare to challenge Kreese (Played by Martin Kove) who had taken Cobra Kai back from Johnny and returned it to it's former "No Mercy" philosophy. Now, Johnny and Daniel will have to put aside their differences in hopes of ending Cobra Kai at the next All Valley Tournament once and for all. The sides of the conflict are set. Now it's just up to viewers to wait until season 4 premieres. Stay tuned!
