Netflix released another clip from the upcoming fourth season of the hit martial arts dramedy Cobra Kai, which will make its return tomorrow, December 31. The Cobra Kai Season 4 clip reunites Karate Kid antagonists John Kreese and Terry Silver as they team up in an attempt to defeat Daniel and Johnny’s united dojo. The video also gives us a glimpse of Silver’s first interaction with the franchise’s younger characters.
In Cobra Kai, Ralph Macchio and William Zabka revisit their star-making roles from the iconic film franchise, The Karate Kid. The epic adversaries return to the dojo, thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. A down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (Zabka) seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now-successful Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi.
“Season 4 finds the Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang dojos joining forces to take down Cobra Kai at the All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament… and whoever loses must hang up their gi,” says the official synopsis. “As Samantha and Miguel try to maintain the dojo alliance and Robby goes all in at Cobra Kai, the fate of the Valley has never been more precarious. What tricks does Kreese have up his sleeve? Can Daniel and Johnny bury their decades-long hatchet to defeat Kreese? Or will Cobra Kai become the face of karate in the valley?”
Joining Macchio and Zabka are Xolo Maridueña, Tanner Buchanan, Mary Mouser, Peyton List, Courtney Henggeler, Vanessa Rubio, Jacob Bertrand, Gianni Decenzo, and Martin Kove. The new season will also introduce new characters in the form of Dallas Dupree Young as Kenny and Oona O’Brien as Devon.
Cobra Kai is written and executive produced by Heald, Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg via their Counterbalance Entertainment banner. Executive producers are Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Will Smith, James Lassiter, and Caleeb Pinkett for Overbrook Entertainment, along with Susan Ekins in association with Sony Pictures Television.
