YouTube is officially out of the scripted series after Netflix acquired the first two seasons of the Karate Kid sequel series plus its unaired third season. The first two seasons, which aired on YouTube in 2018 and 2019, will premiere on Netflix later this year. Season 3 will air at a date that has yet to be announced. YouTube renewed Cobra Kai in May 2019 before it decided to move away from scripted programming. Cobra Kai becomes the third YouTube scripted series to find a new home, following On Becoming a God in Central Florida and Step Up. "The appeal of The Karate Kid saga is timeless, and Cobra Kai picks up right where it left off without missing a beat," said Brian Wright, Netflix's vice president of originals. "The rivalry between Daniel and Johnny is one for the ages, and the show has a ton of heart and is a lot of fun. We can’t wait to introduce a new generation of fans to Cobra Kai and are thrilled to be its new home around the world."
