Netflix has announced it is the new home of Cobra Kai, the popular series based on the continuation of the iconic film, The Karate Kid.
The Sony Pictures Television series first debuted on YouTube, but now it’s moving to Netflix with an all-new third season coming soon.
Executive Producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg said in a statement, “Making Cobra Kai has been a dream come true for us since day one,” adding, “We are beyond excited to join our new partners at Netflix and look forward to the show reaching the massive global audience who loves this franchise as much as we do.”
Previously, the only way to watch Cobra Kai was to subscribe to YouTube Premium at the cost of $11.99 CAD in Canada, but soon you’ll be able to watch the first and second series on Netflix, with the third to follow at an undisclosed date.
“We can’t wait to introduce a new generation of fans to Cobra Kai and are thrilled to be its new home around the world,” said Brian Wright, Vice President, Original Series, Netflix.
