News & Interviews for Cobra Kai: Season 3
Even with its flaws in season three, Cobra Kai hasn't just honored the Karate Kid way of storytelling, but mastered it.
Cobra Kai goes out of its way to show us everybody's sides. But it's tough to gauge exactly what it thinks the truth is.
Season 3 presents the Vietnam backstory for the villain John Kreese, played by Martin Kove, the Cobra Kai, Sensei (instructor) from 1984.
A step back in the right direction after a second season that unfortunately misfired.
Zabka and Macchio ... remain the real heart - and highlight - of the show.
Season Three does something I didn't think was possible - it raises the stakes.
When the second half of the season finally seems to settle a bit and have some focus, the remaining storylines end abruptly, which is quite frustrating as viewers spend 10 episodes waiting for a climax that doesn't arrive.
So damningly great, it knows it's cheesy and plays with its fondue consistency, from clips from the old films Easter eggs galore and even the 80's soundtrack it sticks to the formula that made this series such a hit in the first place.
Audience Reviews for Cobra Kai: Season 3
3d agoI really like the first 2 seasons but its starting to run thin. Worst is they set up an unnecessary cliffhanger to force a fourth season. They had the opportunity to wrap it up but decided to push their luck.
4d agoI love it, really good series
Apr 06, 2021The best season of this show and the best season of anyshow ever, beating CLone WArs season 7 and mando season 2, easily. Okanawai Was just as good as ever, and the finally has amazing callbacks. Perfect 15/10
Apr 02, 2021Awesome art style bro
Mar 22, 2021while not being the best season of this show it is still so good it amazing out of all the reboots/remakes this is one of the best. Cobra kia never dies!
Mar 19, 2021Well paced and leaves you needing more.
Mar 19, 2021The fight scenes help pass the time in what's otherwise become a repetitive plot...none of the characters learn from their actions...all the bullying, dating drama, power-struggles, misunderstandings, and nostalgic flashbacks from the first two seasons just repeat themselves here...but don't worry, it will all be settled at the All Valley Karate tournament like always
Mar 12, 2021Cant wait for the next season!!! Such a great show and I'm wishing there were more like this one nowadays!!
Mar 03, 2021Cobra Kai Season 3 dropped on Netflix today. The highly anticipated release of the former YouTube property delivers an engaging and enjoyable continuation of the Karate Kid series. While the series is corny and predictable, it is also still very watchable. It works, in part, because it doesn't take itself too seriously. There is an underlying recognition throughout the series that this is entertainment for the sake of entertainment. The Cobra Kai Series has clearly done more to excite interest in martial arts practice than any other project since the original film series that spawned this project. I have heard from numbers of Dojang owners that can trace new student enrollments, even during the difficulty of the pandemic, directly to Cobra Kai viewership. That alone says a lot about how the series has connected with a generation that wasn't even born when Daniel LaRusso fought Johnny Lawrence in the All Valley Karate Tournament. While the 3rd season continues to develop its new story line and trade off its origins, it also continues to create back stories which make the characters more multi-dimensional than those created in the John Avildsen film. The biggest weakness of the season is that it is a little light on training and fight sequences. I expect the next season, which is already in the works, will have more of these scenes because of the already foreshadowed storyline. The strength continues to be the power of William Zabka to engage, interest, and entertain. Cobrak Kai Season 3 does not disappoint.
Feb 26, 2021The season builds up based on the dramatically strong end of last season, which really helps it. The cast is also more similar to that of the first season, and it incorporates some of the side characters from there better than in the past. The emotional side is really good, and the two main characters are again handled with great expertise. The final is not as big of a high point compared to the last two seasons but it's still good and there is reason to believe that this story will have a satisfying conclusion.
