The past two seasons of Cobra Kai have been released around New Year's Day.

"Our new year's tradition just got bumped up a few months," the show's official Twitter account wrote.

Netflix also shared a teaser trailer for the season. The preview shows Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Chozen Toguchi (Yuji Okumoto) team up against Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith).

In addition, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and his son, Robby Keene (Tanner Buchanan), are seen traveling to Mexico to look for Miguel Diaz (Xolo Maridueña).

"Following the shocking results of the All Valley Tournament, Terry Silver is expanding the Cobra Kai empire and trying to make his 'No Mercy' style of karate the only game in town. With Kreese behind bars and Johnny Lawrence setting karate aside to focus on repairing the damage he's caused, Daniel LaRusso must call on an old friend for help," an official description reads.
