Production on Cobra Kai Season 4 is "officially underway".

Although it will be some time before we see the results, a cheeky tweet on Netflix's official social media channels revealed episode one of season 4 – called "Let's Begin" – is in production and has been written by show creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg.

Netflix also confirmed in a follow-up tweet that characters Carmen (Vanessa Rubio) and Tory Nicols (Peyton List) "will be returning as series regulars" this season, alongside "new faces" Dallas Dupree Young (The Big Show Show) and Oona O’Brien.

There's still no formal Cobra Kai season 4 release date, unfortunately, but creator Jon Hurwitz previously said he “would imagine season 4 will come out roughly a year after season 3". Considering season 3 aired in January this year, the general hope is that the new season will arrive in January 2022.

Cobra Kai season 3 was recently revealed to be the most-watched show of 2021 so far.
