The Third Season of Cobra Kai is the follow-up to Season 2 of Cobra Kai, which is an American comedy-drama web television series based on The Karate Kid film series created by Robert Mark Kamen that premiered on April 25, 2019 on YouTube Premium.   

Season 3 was renewed in May 2019. 

In May 2020, announcements about the third season says that there would be a delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic and YouTube letting go of the series. In June 2020, it was announced that this season will move to Netflix. In late August 2020, Netflix revealed that season three is scheduled for a release in 2021.


Little is known about Season 3's plot at the moment, though it has been confirmed that Daniel will return to Okinawa, Japan (meaning that we could see the return of Karate Kid Part II characters such as Kumiko and Chozen). Speculation on Season 3's plot has theorized to likely follow up on Miguel's injury, Kreese's takeover of the Cobra Kai Dojo (along with the potential for Terry Silver to make an appearance) Ali's rekindled friendship with Johnny, and Johnny's relationship with Carmen. According to Martin Kove, Season 3 will be learning more about John Kreese's past during his time in Vietnam, of how he became a ruthless sensei and possibly learning his childhood. There will also most likely be a dilemma with Johnny being torn between helping the boy who believed in him and the son he failed.
