Eagle Fang and Miyagi-Do are fated to face off against the villainous Cobra Kai, and fans will only have to wait until December for the action to begin.
Netflix’s new teaser for the upcoming season tells us the stakes have never been higher. In the clip, we’re told that “karate is coming to the world’s biggest stage,” teasing the lead-up to the All Valley Karate Tournament where the three dojos will finally settle the score.
Here’s the official synopsis for season 4:
“Cobra Kai takes place over 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament with the continuation of the inescapable conflict between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka).
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. 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?”
When we last left the dojos, Johnny and Daniel put their differences aside to join forces against Johnny’s former mentor John Kreese and the usurped Cobra Kai.
In the season 3 finale, Kreese made a phone call to an old friend, leading many fans to speculate that the character Terry Silver would make his long-awaited return to the franchise.
That speculation was confirmed in May with the announcement that Thomas Ian Griffith would be returning to reprise his Karate Kid Part III role.
Netflix has confirmed the new season of Cobra Kai will premiere sometime in December.
