The first thing that is worth noting are the stakes — the “soul of the Valley,” as the show describes it. If you’ve watched the first three seasons, you know what that means. Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso have joined forces, with the goal being to stop John Kreese and his vindictive, violent ways once and for all. They’ve combined their dojos and we imagine already there will be some big-time growing pains that go along with that.

The poster hypes up Johnny and Daniel together alongside many of their top students — including Miguel, Samantha, and a potentially-reformed Hawk. Meanwhile, on the Cobra Kai side you have all of your villains, whether it be Tory, Kreese himself, or the return of Karate Kid Part III villain Terry Silver. Everything about this poster goes in line with what we’ve seen from the show before, especially when it comes to reinforcing the battle of good vs. evil. Is the show dramatic and over-the-top at times? Sure, but the magic here (beyond the comedy) is that you get sucked right into this world. The more you watch, the more you start to believe that a karate tournament like the All Valley has the power to reshape much of Southern California. You buy in so hard on these characters, and Cobra Kai is one of the rare shows that makes teenagers into fully-formed, effective characters on the same level as many adults.
Remember, Cobra Kai is coming your way on December 31.
