The ‘Cobra Kai’ Creators Want You To Get ‘Obliterated’ This Fall

Saving the world — sounds pretty hard, right? But can you imagine how hard it’d be to save the world after a debauched night in Las Vegas? Well, that’s exactly what Nick Zano (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf), and their highly trained squad are facing in this first look at Obliterated, a wild action comedy from the creators of Cobra Kai. 

Coming this fall, Obliterated follows an elite special forces team who thwart a deadly threat to Las Vegas, then celebrate with booze, drugs, and sex. Unfortunately, the vibe is killed once they discover that the bomb they deactivated was a fake. With the clock ticking, the intoxicated team must fight through their impairments and overcome their personal issues to find the real bomb and save the world. If 24 and The Hangover hooked up and had a baby, it’d be Obliterated. 

When does Obliterated premiere? 

The party begins on November 30 when all eight episodes of Obliterated Season 1 premiere.

Who’s in the cast of Obliterated? 

First up, we have Hennig as Ava Winters, a by-the-books CIA lead agent overseeing the special forces team, and Zano as Chad McKnight, the hard-partying SEAL team leader. 

Joining them on their mission are Terrence Terrell (B Positive) as Trunk, a Navy SEAL and Chad’s wingman; Paola Lázaro (The Walking Dead) as Angela Gomez, a badass Marine sniper; Kimi Rutledge (Shrill) as Maya Lerner, a young NSA tech expert; Eugene Kim (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) as Paul Yung, an Air Force pilot; C. Thomas Howell (Southland) as Hagerty, an eccentric Army explosives technician; and Alyson Gorske as Lana, a Vegas party girl who gets swept up in the mission. Carl Lumbly also appears as CIA director James Langdon. 

Who’s behind Obliterated? 

Obliterated comes from executive producers, showrunners, writers, and directors Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald, the trio behind the hit action comedy Cobra Kai. Prior to the Karate Kid sequel series, Hurwitz and Schlossberg penned the script for Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle and co-wrote and co-directed Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay and American Reunion. Meanwhile, Heald wrote Hot Tub Time Machine and its sequel.
