As the countdown to 2022 begins, a new season of the popular Karate Kid spin-off Cobra Kai is set to take over our lives.
After being renewed in early 2021, the show will finally be returning to Netflix for its fourth season.
The new series follows Daniel LaRusso (played by Ralph Macchio) and his nemesis Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) as they join forces to defeat Cobra Kai in the next Karate championship.
The series which debuted in May 2018, has been a consistent hit and its latest season is sure to be another knock out.
Here’s what you need to know about season four of Cobra Kai including release date, cast and the possibility for season five.
When is the Cobra Kai release date?
Fans of Cobra Kai can treat themselves to a binge-watch as they welcome in the New Year, as season four of the Netflix original series will drop on December 31. For those watching in the UK, the new season will be available from 8am GMT on New Years Eve.
All 10 episodes will be dropped at once via the streaming platform.
The season picks up right where the previous season ended, with Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence teaming up in a bid to merge their fighting styles and defeat Cobra Kai at the All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament.
Will there be a season five of Cobra Kai?
Cobra Kai and his rivals aren't going anywhere as a season five has been confirmed. In fact, filming for the future season has already wrapped.
Series producer Josh Heald has previously confirmed that the show is likely to be a "multi-series" plot, so long as the main actors were supportive.
