Cobra Kai is heading to Netflix for its upcoming third season following the YouTube selling off its most successful original scripted series. A possible sign of trouble with YouTube more than any dip in popularity with the series.
Netflix apparently got into a hot bidding war with other streaming platforms such as Hulu, and used its financial clout to secure the deal. Which also includes the firs two seasons.
Brian Wright, VP, Original Series, Netflix, said in a statement: “The appeal of The Karate Kid saga is timeless, and Cobra Kai picks up right where it left off without missing a beat. The rivalry between Daniel and Johnny is one for the ages, and the show has a ton of heart and is a lot of fun. 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.”
