Originally a YouTube Red original, Netflix acquired Cobra Kai earlier this year and will be the exclusive streaming platform for the third season and beyond. The first two seasons were recently added to Netflix in August, so you can catch up on the series before Season 3’s launch next year.
Cobra Kai takes place some 30 years after the events of the original Karate Kid and follows Johnny Lawrence (still played by William Zabka) who is still deeply affected by his defeat to Daniel LaRusso (played by Ralph Macchio) after so many years have passed. Johnny reopens the Cobra Kai dojo and begins mentoring a group of young students, while his rival Daniel trains his estranged son. It seems these two are forever intertwined by fate.

Season 3 will focus on the aftermath of the brawl between the two dojos that occurred at the end of Season 2, leaving Miguel in critical condition. We’ll surely learn more about Daniel’s past and continue Johnny’s redemption arc, all while battling against Kreese who seeks to bring Cobra Kai back to its original, ruthless form.
Cobra Kai will also be receiving a spin-off game titled Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues, a two-player beat-em-up style game in the vein of Double Dragon that features eight playable characters including Johnny Lawrence, Daniel LaRusso, and more fighting across 28 story missions. Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues releases on October 27, 2020, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
