Netflix is committed to more Cobra Kai in the future

It will be interesting to see what kind of role Robby Keene will have now that he's under Kreese's tutelage.

When YouTube announced that it was working on a Karate Kid spin-off a few years ago, nobody knew what to make of it. The 2010 reboot starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan was a commercial success, but it didn't garner enough interest to spawn a sequel. However, when the first two seasons of Cobra Kai arrived in 2018 and 2019, it quickly proved itself to be a sought-after show.

According to estimates, the Season 1 premiere of Cobra Kai pulled in more than 90 million views while the Season 2 premiere enjoyed the same viewership numbers. However, it wasn't until Netflix picked up the series that things started to really take off. Since then, Cobra Kai has become a global phenomenon. It is one of the most-watched TV series on the platform.

To prove Netflix's commitment to Cobra Kai, the streaming giant renewed the show for a fifth season with the series creator talking about the possibility of spin-offs in the future.

With that said, fans have been looking forward to watching Season 4 of Cobra Kai. Now, audiences have a date to circle on their calendars.

From the latest trailer, we can assume that Season 4 will pick up exactly where Season 3 left off. The former rivals have finally teamed up to fight against a familiar foe.  However, the trailer also doesn't give us a lot to work with. All we know is that the stakes are higher this time around.

Hopefully, Netflix releases a new trailer ahead of Season 4's premiere on December 31.

Speaking of the TUDUM showcase, Netflix also dropped new trailers and info about The Witcher and Tiger King 2.
