The show’s fourth season recently upped reoccurring cast members, Vanessa Rubio and Peyton List – who play Carmen Diaz and Tory Nichols, respectively – and added Dallas Dupree Young and Oona O’Brien as new characters.

Cobra Kai originally premiered on the now-defunct streaming service YouTube Red and ran for two seasons before moving to Netflix in August 2020. The show quickly became Netflix’s most-watched television series within a matter of months. Season three of the series premiered nearly five months later, on January 1.

While Netflix has yet to provide a release date for the show’s fourth season, in November 2020, Hurwitz tweeted that he thinks the fourth season would premiere around one year after the third season, so in January 2022.

Cobra Kai is a continuation of the 1984 film The Karate Kid, with the film’s stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reprising their roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawerence.

The series follows Lawrence and LaRusso as they further fuel their decades-long rivalry by instructing teens at their respective dojos in the art of karate.

The show also stars Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso, Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz, Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene, with Mary Mouser starring as Samantha LaRusso. In season two, the show promoted Jacob Bertrand (as Eli “Hawk” Moskowitz), Gianni DeCenzo (as Demetri), and Martin Kove (John Kreese).
