There was a fairly recent time when the attitude in the air was “who needs physical media anymore? We can completely trust these huge streaming organizations to keep all their shows accessible forever, right?” Unfortunately, it took the collective masses so long to figure out their mistake, most shows are now released digital-only (and then disappear).
The last season of Netflix’s Cobra Kai appeared around Christmas of last year, so it stands to reason we wouldn’t see it return until NEXT holiday season, right? Wrong…here it is. Or rather, the trailer is here, and the new season itself has been slotted for September 9.
Every now and then you run across a Hollywood news item so strange, all you can think is, “Well, good luck with that, you’re gonna need it.” This one definitely falls under that category.
Netflic is trying something different: instead of releasing trailers for their upcoming shows one at a time, like they normally do, they pooled a bunch of their heaviest hitters together and released all their trailers at once in an event they’ve dubbed TUDUM, after the noise Netflix makes when you turn it on. I personally would have found another name, as TUDUM looks dangerously close to TEDIUM, but we’ll have to save that snark for another day. We got a decent amount of valuable news out of this.
Netflix still isn’t ready to tell you anything new about Cobra Kai Season Four. The twenty-second teaser released today only confirms something we already knew — Terry Silver is joining the baddies’ side when the show returns.
After two years, a climactic battle, and a change of streaming platforms, Cobra Kai is once again open for business. The former YouTube Red (remember that? No? It’s OK) original launches its third season on its new home, Netflix, next month.
YouTube’s venture into original scripted programming didn’t last very long, but it surprisingly generated one buzzworthy show by the name of Cobra Kai. This series was originally pitched to TBS, who turned it down. Now that Cobra Kai creators Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald have proven their worth, however, the Turner-owned network is all too eager to backpedal. They’ve sold their second series, Obliterated, to the network.
