Cobra Kai Season Four Summary & Season Five Tease

The series is coming off from the exciting fourth season that saw the return of The Karate Kid Part III (1989) villain Terry Silver with Thomas Ian Griffith reprising the role for the Netflix series. With Kreese recruiting his Vietnam War buddy to help train Cobra Kai, Daniel and Johnny found themselves in an uneasy alliance as Daniel's Miyagi-do joined forces with Johnny's Eagle Fang for their very dojos' survival training for the All Valley Karate Tournament. New recruits, changing allegiances, chaos, and a controversial finish added fuel to the fire, not to mention the season five tease of other potential returning faces to the franchise like Sean Kanan's Mike Barnes with fingers crossed for Hilary Swank's Julie Pierce. Here's a look at the official logline for the event: "Join the cast of the Netflix phenomenon Cobra Kai for an unprecedented, badass, one-night-only celebration! This explosion of the Cobra Kai universe includes exclusive conversations with the cast, live musical performances, fan photo ops, and plenty of surprises. Costumes are encouraged — break out those gis, shower curtains, and mohawks! Strike First. Strike Hard. No Mercy. Only at Netflix Is A Joke: The Festival."
