Here’s What You Need To Know About Netflix’s Cobra Kai Season 3
Netflix’s Cobra Kai Season 3 debuts on New Year’s Day 2021 which means there are just a few more hours to binge watch the first two seasons. With that in mind we have everything you need to know about Cobra Kai Season 3 so that on January 1, 2021 you’re ready to hit the ground running.
Cobra Kai Season 3 Debuts January 1, 2021 Which Is Earlier Than Expected
Just in case you didn’t know, Cobra Kai is a continuation of The Karate Kid movies. It takes place over three decades after the original Karate Kid movie, an American martial arts classic. The drama was made by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg.
Originally the debut of Season 3 was announced in October when it was reported that Cobra Kai would debut on Netflix on January 8th, 2021. Guess what? That date is no longer relevant, there is a new date you need to know about!
There were tons of rumors that the launch date would be moved up and the news finally arrived that indeed Cobra Kai Season 3 would not debut as planned.
When Is Cobra Kai Season 3 Coming To Netflix?
Today, December 24, 2020, Netflix announced that the new debut date is January 1. Originally fans were led to believe that the show would be seen as soon as summer 2020 due to series co-creator, Jon Hurwitz, spilling that info on a Twitter Q&A. Oops, it looked like his optimism was wrong and the date was quickly adjusted.
It has been confirmed that the show takes place in Okinawa in the new season. A very brief preview video features the sound of a heart monitor beeping. Eventually the sound becomes one long single beep indicating that that the person who is hooked up to it is dead. Is it Miguel Diaz (Xolo Maridueña) who ends up dead?
Season 3 picks up a bit in time after the events of the Season 2 finale according to William Zabka. He has been quoted as saying the show picks up following a large amount of time, not immediately afterward.
