Yes! Cobra Kai never dies!

Following on from the news a few weeks back that we could see Cobra Kai spin-offs in the future (here), we now know that season four of the hit show is about to begin production with a couple of minor changes.

The official Netflix Twitter account declared that season four was about to begin production, writing: “You ready? Lets begin! Season 4 of Cobra Kai is officially underway!”

And, as someone who came to the dojo late and then devoured Season one and two within a week and season three in a few days, this is really great news!

On top of this news, we now know that the series is promoting two of its most prominent returning stars to series regulars with Vanessa Rubio and Peyton List,  left, officially joining the main cast.

Rubio plays Carmen Diaz, mother of Miguel Diaz and love interest to Johnny Lawrence, the star of the show. List plays Tory Nichols, a Valley High student who quickly became something of a villain and the top Cobra Kai student.

Adding to this, Shameless and The Good Place’s Dallas Dupree Young and Oona O’Brien have joined the cast as new characters. Young will star as a bullied kid named Kenny and O’Brien is set to play the intense and possibly volatile new karate student Devon.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
