The first two seasons that is all set and will join the unaired third of the famous known show ‘Karate Kid’ sequel, and been starring Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, but there is a change it will be on the new platform.
Cobra Kai has found its new home.
With YouTube being the only platform and now yet officially out of the scripted space as of the news, Netflix has acquired the first three seasons of the Karate Kid sequel and has been starring Ralph Macchio and William Zabka too.
The first two seasons, which have been aired on YouTube in 2018 and even in 2019, will make their debut on Netflix later by this year. The third season of the drama from the Sony Pictures Television will premiere on Netflix at a date to be determined yet and been announced by the officials.
YouTube had previously been picked up by the comedy for a third season before all the changes that have to happen all in its business model from a subscription to an ad-supported platform they wanted to.
Cobra Kai landed at Netflix after YouTube informed Sony TV that it had no plans to pursue a fourth season amid its shift to unscripted fare for their will.
When the indie studio then shopped the series no wonders, it again drew interest from Disney-owned Hulu.
Other outlets were said to have kicked the tires on the series as such namely” gently used” programming remains of interest to broadcast too, cable and streaming outlets alike given the uncertainty around that when the product only can resume amid the novel coronavirus pandemic taking place.
Cobra Kai though, which sees that Macchio and Zabka reprise their beloved roles as Daniel and Johnny in the show, respectively, is created by exec producers Josh Heald from the team of the show, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg including.
“Making a Cobra Kai has been a dream come true for us since day one from the shoot,” exec producers Heald said, Hurwitz and Schlossberg said in a joint statement though.
“We are so grateful for this to happen to us and yet thankful for the tireless dedication that has been put by Jeff Frost, Chris Parnell, Jason Clodfelter, Karen Tatevosian, and all our partners at Sony together for finding us a new home where we can not only continue the series though but also explore opportunities to further expand The Karate Kid universe too. We are beyond excited to join our new partners as the streaming platform at Netflix and look forward to the show reaching the massive global audience who loves this franchise as much as we do so.”
Cobra Kai is yet and is the latest series to get new life at Netflix this time for the audiences. It joins Lucifer, Longmire, Designated Survivor, and The Killing, among the others too.
