Good news for fans of Netflix’s Cobra Kai, as the streamer has announced today that season three of the acclaimed Karate Kid sequel series has been moved up a week from January 8th and will now arrive on New Year’s Day!

Cobra Kai takes place 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, where a now successful Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) struggles to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of Mr. Miyagi, and must face his previous adversary, down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), who seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo.

The first two seasons of Cobra Kai are available to stream now on Netflix, with season three landing on New Year’s Day.
