Well the worst kept secret has finally been confirmed as the new teaser for Cobra Kai season 4 has announced the return of Terry Silver! As you all know, Thomas Ian Griffith played the role of the snake in the grass confidant of Martin Kove’s Reese and his return was teased at the end of the last season.

Check out Griffith as he returns below!

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.

This is what it’s all led up to and it’s the moment favs have been waiting for. I should know because I’m one of them. Silver was a way over the top villain and Griffith chewed up every scene he was in so it’s gonna be exciting to see how he’s been all these years.

Executive producers and writers Josh Heald Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg spoke about the event and when to rightfully bring Silver back.

“Since the beginning of the series we’ve been carefully orchestrating the right moment to unleash Cobra Kai dojo co-founder Terry Silver back into the universe. That moment is now. We can’t wait for the whole world to experience Thomas Ian Griffith’s majestic return to the franchise.”

Griffith has always been one of my favorite action stars of the DTV heyday of action cinema on the 90’s and since he hasn’t been in the spotlight for a while, it’s great to welcome back an old friend or enemy as the case is here. From Excessive Force to Crackerjack, Griffith tore it up with his martial arts ability and dramatic acting chops. The Karate Kid Part III will always be the one film that Griffith is famous for and now it’s about to come full circle.

The rest of the cast includes Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso, William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence, Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz, Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene, Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso, Peyton List as Tory Nichol, Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso, Vanessa Rubio as Carmen Diaz, Jacob Bertrand as Hawk, Gianni Decenzo as Demetri, and of course, Martin Kove as John Kreese.

There is no release date yet but season 4 should hit late this year!
