After three very successful first seasons on Netflix after being ripped from near obscurity on YouTube, Cobra Kai is back with a new trailer for Season 4. The First Look Has Landed During, the three-hour online event for Netflix fans, named after the distinctive drumbeat of Netflix’s audio logo that appears at the start of all of its originals. This type of virtual big tent event is the first of its kind by Netflix, which dominates the streaming world as the largest subscription service, with 209 million members.
From intense fight choreography to waves of nostalgia – and a hint of ’80s-inspired ridicule – the fourth season of Cobra Kai seems to be peppered with the same exuberance that has marked it in seasons past.
We’re back with Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence as they raise the stakes even higher, and if you thought the show culminated in an all-out school war, wait. It’s time to settle the scores of the All Valley Karate Tournament and face the sinister John Kreese – together.
With so many karate fans swarming around the world to take a look at the Cobra Kai dojo, it’s no surprise that Season 5 has beenbefore season 4 can even wax, wax.
