With the first two seasons of Cobra Kai now on Netflix, fans get to watch the show that many have praised as being “surprisingly good”. Me included. After having binged seasons one and two, I can tell you personally that I never thought a show like this would be so great. So, naturally, I’m now invested in the future of the Karate Kid sequel series. Unfortunately, season three won’t hit the streaming service until sometime next year.
However, Ralph Macchio did offer some clues as to what fans can expect. Macchio, who reprises his role as Daniel LaRusso for Cobra Kai, teased on Conan that season three takes a trip to Japan:
“I have been to Okinawa for some shooting of Cobra Kai season three, which I cannot talk too much about. But I can say it dives into the origin of Miyagi Do Karate. We learn a little bit, some secrets of past history that is new to the audience, and to LaRusso, my character, and we actually went to Okinawa to shoot.”
William Zabka, who plays Johnny Lawrence; had also revealed earlier this months:
“Well, nothing is as it seems, I can tell you that. Listen, for the character of Johnny, Ali, I’ve been saying this for the last two seasons, she’s a big missing piece of his life. She’s the love that got away and, in some form, would love to reconnect. But the show is full of surprises.”
“Well, I could tell you this much. I mean, the end of season two is a car wreck essentially. There’s a lot of pieces to put back together. There’s a lot of healing that has to happen. There’s a lot of growing that needs to happen. I’ve seen a lot of fan theories out there and heard a lot of fan theories. Nice tries. It’s awesome. I mean, season three is fireworks. And I think it’s season one and two combined on steroids. And it was a blast to shoot, and it’s going to be worth the wait. It’s hard. We were hoping it would be out before now, but the world is what it is right now, and we’re so happy to be at a great home like Netflix.
And for our fans that have already seen the show to watch it and watch it again, and the new fans to come on board. There’s a lot of work to get season three ready. It’s getting translated for 30 countries and all that stuff.”
