The series premiered in May 2018 on YouTube Premium. After the first two seasons, the show was moved to Netflix. Season 3 aired on Netflix on New Year’s Day this year, and Season 4 premiered on December 31, 2021. Netflix renewed the series for Season 5 ahead of the Season 4 release, and we won’t need to wait for another New Year’s Eve for another season.
“Following the shocking results of the All Valley Tournament, Terry Silver is expanding the Cobra Kai empire and trying to make his “No Mercy” style of karate the only game in town.
