Fan-favorite martial arts-comedy hybrid series Cobra Kai has dropped a new trailer for the upcoming fourth season which is set to premiere on its home streaming service Netflix on December 31. The critically acclaimed series has been a hit since the beginning, so we are excited to see what Season 4 has in store for us.
The story of Cobra Kai picks up 34 years after the happenings of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament and focuses on a down on his luck Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) who wants to bring glory back to his name by reopening the notorious Cobra Kai dojo which inevitably reheats his feud with his nemesis, Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio).
Starring in the series alongside Macchio and Zabka are Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso, Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz, Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene, Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso, Jacob Bertrand as Hawk, Gianni Decenzo as Demetri, Vanessa Rubio as Carmen, Peyton List as Tory and Martin Kove as John Kreese with Dallas Dupree Young as Kenny, Oona O’Brien as Devon, Griffin Santopietro as Anthony and Thomas Ian Griffith as Terry Silver.
Joining the executive production team are Will Smith, James Lassiter, and Caleeb Pinkett for Westbrook Entertainment, Sony Pictures Television’s Susan Ekins, and Macchio and Zabka.
