“ Cobra Kai ” is the television series that has revived and reinvigorated the history of “ Karate Kid ”. Set more than 30 years after the 1984 All-Valley karate tournament, the martial arts drama shows what happened to Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso’s life and how their rivalry hasn’t aged one bit. In fact, it is rekindled when the two open their dojos and their students go to war.
The show was originally released on May 2, 2018, by YouTube Premium, but was later acquired by Netflix, which renewed it for a third and fourth season, once the new characters of the franchise became popular, including Miguel, Robby, Tory, and Sam, who accompany Johnny and Daniel on their adventures.
After the tragic events at the end of the second season, when Miguel fell backward from a second floor, the third returned to the old rivals on the right track and facing the fourth season, the All Valley Karate Tournament is the goal to rid the Valley of the negative influence of John Kreese, Cobra Kai’s new sensei.
With the help of Ali Mills, Daniel and Johnny were able to understand that they have more in common than against and decided to join forces to train their students, but Kreese will not sit idly by in the face of the alliance that threatens their plans.

Now, everything is uncertain. A new strain of the coronavirus was recently detected that has put the entire world on high alert. A flare-up could be the worst thing that could happen, resulting in a massive mandatory quarantine again to prevent further COVID-19 infections.
However, and as Hurwitz himself mentions, film and television productions have been kept safe from this virus, so they may all maintain a solid biosafety regime and a work rhythm that allows season 4 to be filmed without setbacks or risks.
Season 3 sees some significant developments in the characters and the story. Ali resurfaces in Johnny and Daniel’s lives, which surprisingly ends up bringing them closer together. Talking to her helped both of them put things in perspective and close their respective relationships with her.
Johnny and Daniel take a big step when they decide to merge Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang Karate. The Cobra Kai students begin to see Kreese’s intentions more clearly and realize that while Johnny truly cares about them, Kreese’s only goal is to win.
Even Eli, who has a strong penchant for violence, is unhappy with the way things are going and eventually switches sides. You can also glimpse Kreese’s past from his days in the military, which explains the person he is. Things between Kreese and the duo, Johnny and Daniel, escalate to the point where they decide to settle the matter with a tournament.
The end of the final episode sees Kreese making a call to an old friend and Cobra Kai co-founder, Terry Silver. In season 4, Silver will take center stage. What will happen between Robby, Johnny and Daniel will also become more apparent, considering that Robby is Johnny’s son and Daniel’s former student who has chosen to side with Kreese.
The next season will show what awaits Cobra Kai and the other two dojos. Although Miguel is recovering from his injuries, will he be able to get back in shape? Several series have incorporated COVID-19 in their history, but that will not be the case with “ Cobra Kai ”. In October 2020, Hurwitz stated that although the filming process is affected by the pandemic, the story will not incorporate it.
