Cobra Kai Searching For New Streaming Home Ahead of Season 3 Premiere

After two acclaimed and successful seasons at the video-sharing platform, the Karate Kid sequel series Cobra Kai is looking for a new streaming home ahead of its third season premiere as YouTube is looking to move away from scripted programming.

YouTube has co-produced the series with Sony Pictures TV for the three seasons but sources report that as the service looks to move more into unscripted programming, they informed the studio they would not be commissioning a fourth season of the series. Given its record-breaking viewership of over 80 million viewers across the first and second season premieres, Sony didn’t want to the series to end and has been negotiating with YouTube for the rights to take it to a new streaming platform for its upcoming third season and any future seasons, as well as non-exclusive rights to stream past seasons.

Sources report that Netflix and Hulu are currently the top contenders for the rights to the project and that YouTube will not formally release the rights to the series or debut the new season until a new home has been secured.

In Cobra Kai, Ralph Macchio and William Zabka revisit their star-making roles from the iconic film franchise, The Karate Kid. The epic adversaries return to the dojo, thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament. A down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (Zabka) seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with a now-successful Daniel LaRusso (Macchio), who has been struggling to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi.

YouTube officially renewed its critically-acclaimed martial arts drama series for a third season which is scheduled to premiere in 2020. The upcoming season will see Daniel LaRusso returning to Japan in order to continue to navigate through life without the mentorship of his Karate Kid sensei, Mr. Miyagi. LaRusso fought in Japan during the events of 1986’s The Karate Kid Part II.

The first season of Cobra Kai proved to be a strong success for the video service, with the first episode garnering over 50 million views within five months of airing and critics and audiences praising the series, awarding it the rare 100 percent “Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The second season also opened with a record-breaking premiere and received highly strong reviews from critics, currently sitting at an 88 percent approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes.

Scott Derrickson Signs On To Helm Labyrinth Sequel

Director Scott Derrickson has found his next project in the form of a sequel to the David Bowie-starring cult classic Labyrinth.

Scott Derrickson

The original film, which hit theaters in 1986, focused on a 16-year-old girl named Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) as she sets out on a quest to reach the center of the titular otherworldly maze to rescue her infant brother Toby from Jareth the Goblin King (Bowie), whom she wished him away to. It was a box office failure upon release while receiving a fairly warm reception from critics and would go on to become a cult classic in the years since, spawning tie-in novels, video games, perennial screenings and an annual fan masquerade ball.

A sequel to the film was originally announced in 2016 with Nicole Perlman (Detective Pikachu) set to pen the script alongside Jay Basu and Fede Álvarez (Don’t Breathe) attached to direct, but after languishing in development hell, that project was shelved, with the new project being a different take on the concept.

The new sequel is set to be penned by Maggie Levin, who wrote and directed Into the Dark and My Valentine for Hulu, with Lisa Henson of The Jim Henson Company set to produce while Brian Henson will executive produce alongside Derrickson and his frequent collaborator C. Robert Cargill.

Derrickson began making a name for himself in the horror world early in his career, helping co-write Urban Legends: Final Cut and co-writing and directing the direct-to-video Hellraiser: Inferno before making his big screen directorial debut with The Exorcism of Emily Rose. He would continue with the fan-favorite 2012 hit Sinister and 2014 box office hit Deliver Us From Evil before trying his hand at the blockbuster genre with the 2016 Marvel Cinematic Universe smash Doctor Strange. He was set to return as co-writer and director for its upcoming sequel, but after reported creative differences between him and Marvel Studios, he exited the project with Sam Raimi (Spider-Man trilogy) taking over the reigns.

Stephen King Shares His Essential Horror Films 

Earlier this month, Stephen King tweeted:

“God, how I wish I could go to a movie tonight. Popcorn, Junior Mints, big old soda, sitting in the third row and watching some action flick or goofball comedy. I’d love that.”

We couldn’t agree more. Until then, the author shared with us his top five horror movies to watch at home. Cancel the plans you don’t have for this weekend and get your popcorn ready. Lock the doors if you must. But remember, they’re just movies…

The Exorcist (1973)

“Scary from the start, when—in the prologue—the clock suddenly stops. It’s very claustrophobic for a studio movie, and every time we go back to that bedroom with Regan, we dread even more what we’re going to see. But for me, it’s the grisly grace notes that make the film. Who can forget, ‘Couldja help an old altar boy, fadder?’”

Dawn of the Dead (1978)

“Kudos to Tom Savini, who dreamed up the special effects, with no CGI. And again, there’s the constant claustrophobia of the diminishing band of survivors being trapped in a shopping mall.”

Alien (1979)

“I loved the working-class ethic of the guys on the ship (Ripley included), and all the swinging chains. But of course, with that one, it’s all about the ‘chest-bursting’ scene. At that time, no one had ever seen anything like that.”

The Brood (1979)

“David Cronenberg’s first great film, with Samantha Eggar (‘BAD mummies! FUCKED-UP mummies!’) and Oliver Reed (who looks on the verge of exploding) playing parents from hell…only hell turns out to be the children.”

The Blair Witch Project (1999)

“Blair Witch” scared the living daylights out of me, I think because it was so unpolished. And nothing tops the final shot.
