As excited as many fans of the series may be about bingeing the brand new season when it becomes available to us, there is always that crowd already looking ahead and also wanting to know how much more they can expect to see.
I had a chance to speak to the co-creators of Cobra Kai about the third season and more and learned a bit more about the plans they have for the future of the series.
2020 may have been a really rough year for some productions, but Jon Hurwitz, the co-creator, revealed that the show is in a perfect spot story-wise when it comes to the fourth season and beyond.
Cobra Kai was then renewed for Season 4 ahead of Season 3’s premiere, and given the show’s increased popularity since the first two seasons were added to Netflix, it stands to reason that it could run for quite a while.
The creators are prepared for whatever scenario may come in the future and whatever talent may be available to return to the series. It also requires some idea of what the endgame will be, which Jon Hurwitz confirmed he and the other creators are already considering.
Cobra Kai Season 4, Netflix’s Plans And Development Status Revealed
The co-creator spoke about the writing process and the challenge of deciding what to incorporate when there’s only so much time to tell stories in an individual season.
There’s undoubtedly more runway for Cobra Kai to say to a whisper compared to the time allotted to The Karate Kid films back in the day, but there are still limitations.
Therefore, the co-creators are still sitting on some ideas they wrote back in Season 1, some of which may be seen by viewers in Season 3. And let’s not forget, if there’s one thing Hollywood loves more than revivals as of late, it’s spinoffs.
Co-creator Hayden Schlossberg signaled that expanding stories beyond the boundaries of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence‘s lives would be something they’d be interested in doing, similar to another iconic television franchise.
Cobra Kai has established many interesting new characters in its first two seasons, and there may come a day when one of them is the star of their series.
Of course, that’s assuming everything goes right for all these characters in Season 3, which the end of Season 2 teased may not happen.
