With the series returning to Netflix at the end of this year, Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg's Ralph Macchio & William Zabka-starring Cobra Kai has definitely set up one helluva fourth season of the "Karate Kid" spinoff. We have Thomas Ian Griffith returning as Terry Silver (The Karate Kid III) to offering Kreese (Martin Kove) some serious backup. That means life is about to get a whole lot uglier for Daniel LaRusso's (Macchio) Miyagi-Do and Johnny Lawrence's (Zabka) Eagle Fang dojos- even as they join forces. Because this time, there's more than just a trophy on the line at the All Valley Karate Tournament- it's the heart and soul of the community. That means it's time for new alliances, new students, and (of course) new conflicts- as you're about to see in the following preview images (so does that mean we get to call him "Crane Kick Johnny" from now on?):
Now here's more of what viewers can expect when Netflix's Cobra Kai Season 4 premieres on December 31, 2021:
Here's a look back at the teaser that laid it all out for the viewers when it comes to the All-Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament:
Cobra Kai Season 4 finds the Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang dojos joining forces to take down Cobra Kai at the All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament… and whoever loses must hang up their gi. As Samantha and Miguel try to maintain the dojo alliance and Robby goes all in at Cobra Kai, the fate of the Valley has never been more precarious. What tricks does Kreese have up his sleeve? Can Daniel and Johnny bury their decades-long hatchet to defeat Kreese? Or will Cobra Kai become the face of karate in the valley?
