Cobra Kai season three lands on Netflix on January 1st, 2021. Just a couple of short weeks later, filming will reportedly begin on season four from January 20th.
As we’ve learned previously, season four was always due to begin production in early 2021 although exact dates weren’t determined at the time of publishing that article.
According to issue 1226 of ProductionWeekly, we now have firm dates as to when the series will begin filming. It lists that Cobra Kai season four is currently due to start filming on January 20th, 2021 and run through April 15th, 2021.
Filming will once again take place (as per the previous three seasons) in Atlanta, Georgia.
Back in October 2020, Hurwitz stated that COVID-19 while having an impact on filming itself won’t be incorporated into the story adding that the show will be filmed under strict COVID protocols.
There are initial plans to film Season 4. Other shows have been filming with strict Covid protocols and everyone is learning from their experiences. Covid shouldn't have an impact on the story we're telling. We just need to find safe ways to tell that story. #CobraKai https://t.co/Qctbefu5Ic

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that season four is due to begin filming so quickly, just a couple of months ago, the writers confirmed they were already outlining some of the later episodes in the season, and on October 24th, 2020 it was announced that it was the last official day in the writer’s room for season four.
Final day of the Season 4 writers room. 14 weeks with some of my favorite people in the world. Scripts are rolling in. Excited we’ll have everything written and polished by the time we start filming. It’s going to be another kick ass season! #cobrakai #cobrakaionnetflix pic.twitter.com/a5xBaZcOLZ

We’ll have a full preview of season four out shortly (likely tomorrow) going over everything we know about season four thus far. We already know a few extra tidbits already including that Leo Birenberg and Zach Robinson are once again set to return to do the score.
Once season three hits Netflix, don’t forget to check out the cast who will be appearing in the first episode of The Netflix Afterparty which drops on January 2nd.
