“If you haven’t seen this show and you are a Karate Kid fan, it is a must watch series. This Cobra Kai panel is also a MUST WATCH, to hear what the cast and executive producers have to say about the making of the series and how it all came about. They also talk about the upcoming fourth season, so you need to get caught up on the prior three seasons. It is a total binge watching series. It was awesome to see Ralph Macchio on this Zoom panel with co-start William Zabka and the rest of cast. Don’t miss the opportunity to watch them on The Paley Center for Media’s Paley Front Row presented by Citi.” Judy Shields, The Hollywood Times

Across its three seasons, Cobra Kai has captured the imagination of audiences and critics alike and cemented its place as a pop culture phenomenon, and one of the most addictive series on TV today.
