Netflix has given fans a Christmas present this year with the announcement that the highly anticipated third season of the hit series Cobra Kai will now debut on New Years Day. The announcement comes with brand new key art that is deliciously retro so check it out along with the announcement below!

There will also be an after party for the premiere on January 2, 2021 for fans to chat up the new season. Cobra Kai also stars Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso, Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz, Tanner Buchanan as (Robby Keene, Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso, Jacob Bertrand as Hawk, Gianni Decenzo as Demetri, Vanessa Rubio as Carmen, Peyton List as Tory, and Martin Kove as the dreaded John Kreese.

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.

The upcoming season will see Daniel LaRusso returning to Japan in order to continue to navigate through life without the mentorship of his Karate Kid sensei, Mr. Miyagi. LaRusso fought in Japan during the events of 1986’s The Karate Kid Part II. With a new sensei at the helm of the Cobra Kai dojo, a three-way feud takes center stage. Old grudges — like Cobra Kai — never die.

Get ready as this season looks like it’s going to amp up the fight choreography which is a great thing to see. This is clearly one of my favorite series right now and being a fan ever since the original came out, I was sold from the premiere episode.

Cobra Kai unleashes on January 1st. Happy New Year!
