Cobra Kai remains the #1 show on Netflix correct now, a story of what occurs when you make a show that is superior sufficient, it does not matter how numerous people today do not know it exists on YouTube Red, you as well could possibly discover wild results years later when a additional mainstream streaming service buys you.
Netflix has scooped up Cobra Kai for itself, but what that implies is not just future seasons, with season three confirmed to be coming in 2021, but now they’re speaking spin-offs, as well.
In an interview with /Film, show co-creator Jon Hurwitz spoke about how they’re now taking into consideration a entire host of prospective spin-offs with Netflix backing them now.
““It’s really hard for me to give you an precise answer to this, but what I can say is that we have a list of at least 5 distinct scenarios that we would pursue, that we could look at,” Hurwitz stated. “Now, some of them are untraditional. Some of them are as opposed to any type of spin-off you have ever noticed prior to. But, each time we’re writing episodes of the show, we’re falling in enjoy with the characters that we’re producing and examining characters from the previous.”
This may possibly involve distinct timelines:
“Within the globe of ‘Cobra Kai,’ there are particular points that you can discover and particular points that do not match into that unique box, but there may possibly be possibilities down the road to break out one particular of these characters and get to know them far better or to discover distinct occasions in characters’ lives.”
Even with 5 tips, I most likely would not anticipate additional than…one Cobra Kai spin-off to start out with, and Netflix will see how points go from there.
I ran across a narrative this week that it is a undesirable point that we, the audience, didn’t spend for and watch Cobra Kai when it was initially airing on YouTube Red and we had to wait for it to be purchased by Netflix to be planted straight in our faces,
I believe that’s…very misguided, and discounts the reality that virtually no one particular knew this show existed at all prior to it was on Netflix, which is not the outcome of an audience that didn’t want to spend for it on YouTube Red, it is YouTube’s fault for failing to market it sufficient so people today even knew about it, and YouTube Red’s (now YouTube Premium’s) all round failings as a subscription service for original content material that does not evaluate with its big rivals Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO Max or Disney Plus. It is not even in the conversation.
This appears like a win-win for every person. Netflix subscribers get a excellent new show without the need of possessing to subscribe to a random other subscriptions service that sucks, Netflix gets a hit new show that also occurs to be exceptionally affordable to make, the Cobra Kai group gets to have their dreams realized by creating additional seasons and prospective spin-offs. Who is the loser right here, precisely?
Anyway, watch Cobra Kai to catch up for future season and spin-offs. It is excellent.
