Netflix has acquired the first two seasons and the unaired third of the ‘Karate Kid’ sequel.
‘Cobra Kai’, which debuted on YouTube in 2018 and 2019, stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka. The seasons will premiere on Netflix at a later point this year. The transfer of ‘Cobra Kai’ from YouTube to Netflix marks YouTube’s final exit from all scripted material.
“We are so proud of ‘Cobra Kai’ and are overwhelmed by the massive fan response to the series. Josh, Jon, Hayden, Ralph, William and the entire cast have done such a brilliant job with this sensational series and the huge audience reaction and sentiment for it is a testament to that,” said Sony TV president Jeff Frost. “We are very thankful to our partners at Netflix and couldn’t be more elated that they have become the new home for this epic saga.”
