“Cobra Kai”, the current spin-off of the movie classic “Karate Kid” that premiered its first two seasons through YouTube Premium, leaves the Google platform and will now premiere a third of the plot through Netflix.
According to Variety, the agreement reached by the streaming platform has made it possible to obtain the first two seasons, as well as being the exclusive channel for fans who want to see the third part of the story.
However, the release date has not yet been set, so fans will have to wait a bit longer before content is available.
However, Netflix had previously tried to stay with the exclusivity of the series, since for the announcement of the second part of the saga the streaming company negotiated with the creators to broadcast their story on their platform.
At that time the negotiations did not come to fruition and an agreement was not finally reached, but now the story has changed and the company has announced the closure of the talks.
In the words of Brian Wright, vice president of original series for Netflix “the appeal of this saga is that Cobra Kai begins where the previous story was, so it does not miss a beat. The rivalry between Daniel and Johnny is forever, and the series has a lot of heart and action. “
“We can’t wait to introduce a new generation of fans of this new story and we are excited to be their new home around the world.”
On the other hand, Sony Pictures Television, who are behind the production of “Cobra Kai”, have declared that they are satisfied with the agreement reached with the most popular streaming platform today, while from YouTube they have not released official statements.
