Have you ever approached the end of a very good season of a program and felt that panic kick when you realized you only have a few episodes left? Cobra Kaihave done it to me four times now. And when that happens, I not only worry about running out of new episodes of a single season, but I also tend to get hyperfocused on the big picture. Fine, I’ve been waiting a long time for season 5, but we’ll still get a lot more time with these characters after that, right? Maybe it’s a bit of a greedy mentality, but this is how it goes when you successfully deliver a fantastic sequel to a beloved film series that brings together a huge (and growing) fan base.
Cobra Kai Season 4 begins with Daniel (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny (William Zabka) trying to work together. After concluding an agreement with Kreese (Martin Kove) demands that the losing dojo at the All Valley Tournament shut down forever, knowing they have a better chance of defeating Cobra Kai together. But is that understanding enough to force the two to finally push their history and differences aside and give a little to each other? To further complicate the situation, Kreese is also recruiting a partner, a person who has had a particularly brutal encounter with Daniel, Karate Kid del III‘s Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith).
With Cobra Kai Season 4 is now available to watch on Netflix, we’ll have an extended spoiler conversation with the series’ creators and executive producers, Hayden Schlossberg, Jon Hurwitz and Josh Heald. If you are not done with the new season yet, you do not have to worry; there are no spoilers in this article, but do not hit playback on the video at the top of this article yet.
After digging into a bunch of spoiler-filled specs from season 4, we withdrew a bit to reevaluate the trio’s overall plan for the series. There has been talk of a six-season plan in the past, but not only has it never been confirmed as being everything, end everything for the show, but one has to imagine the value of the creatives leaving the door open to evolve. as they discover more about the story they tell as they work on each season. With that possibility in mind, I asked the EPs how much that game plan has changed while making season 1 to 4. Here’s what Heald said:
“There are characters and stories that we’ve considered we would have said from the beginning, ‘Okay, it’s a season,’ and that story ended up being an episode or two. And then there’s the opposite of it, where you say, ‘Okay, it’s a season,’ and now we’ll expand it to more seasons, so we’ve always looked back at our original plan with open eyes, because with so many new branches and so many new characters and interactions. , and what you see during the production, when, ‘Oh wow, these two people together, there’s something interesting about that duo,’ you want to lean more into it, and when you lean more into it, it pushes of course other things further and further out.It has changed at times but it has not either.We still have a playoff plan.We are still writing beyond season 5. But it has been fun to bring the new characters and story lines in and let they show the way sometimes. “
Hurwitz also offered a few more details on how they are approaching bringing this “playoff plan” to the screen:
“We never said from the beginning how many seasons there would be. I think we’ve always seen it as if at least six were kind of in our heads, but we’re still figuring out exactly what the length is. for that landing is for all the reasons that Josh mentioned. “
