Grab your seats as the wait is finally about to over for Cobra Kai Season 4. As reported, the fourth season has finally wrapped up its filming. But to our surprise, for the first time, the finale brought some pleasant moments in disguise as both the rivals decided to drop their old rivalry once and for all. However, it doesn’t mean that everything will turn into a bed of roses because now John Kreese will make some brutal moves. So now, let’s see how far they will go to protect their students.
Cobra Kai follows the old rivalry between Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence in the present day. Thirty-four years after the All Valey Karate Tournament, Johnny decided to reopen the infamous Cobra Kai after saving a kid from some bullies. However, it quickly reignited the old rivalry between Daniel and Johnny, which became personal by passing time.
Cobra Kai Season 4: The Famous Villain Will Return
Thomas Ian Griffith is stepping into his famous villainous character as Terry Silver for the fourth run. Well, Karate Kid franchise fans will remember the infamous multi-millionaire Terry Silver, the war buddy of John Kreese. Kreese called him in the closing moment of the last season, hinting at reconciliation. Thus, Silver’s return will indeed make Kreese (Martin Kove) more ruthless. Besides them, we learned that Hilary Swank will return as Julie Pierce, The Next Karate Kid’s lead character.
Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso, William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence, and Xolo Maridueña as Miguel will once again return. Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso and Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso will join them too. Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene with Jacob Bertrand as Hawk and Martin Cove as John Kreese will return as well. Peyton List as Tory Schwarber and Vanessa Rubio as Carmen Diaz will also return as series regular.
Newcomers Joining The Cast
We hope to see Kyler (Jeo Seo) and Demetri (Gianni Decenzo) again. As they played an integral part in the final battle. Further, we expect to see more spotlight on the other students, and the roaster seems a bit thin this time. Besides, Oona O’Brien as Devon and Dallas Dupree Young as Kenny will now join the cast as the series regular. But there’s no doubt that they both might end up in a fierce battle.

Cobra Kai Season 4: Finale Explained How Things Will Change
The fourth run will explore the aftermath of the All Valley Karate Tournament. Kreese won the match leaving Daniel and Johnny with no choice to leave the town. But, the never-expected twist did happen when Daniel’s Miyagi-do and Johnny’s Eagle Fang teamed up against Kreese’s Cobra Kai. Yet we shouldn’t forget that their students are still rivals. And that could make things worse for them at the beginning of this ally.
Further, Silver’s return and Johnny’s son joining Cobra Kai could elevate their troubles. Well, Silver could go to any length, and his return clip seems like a warning for Daniel and Johnny.

But we can still expect a huge battle and perhaps an undesired death in the finale.
