“Cobra Kai” Season 3 just dropped on Netflix, which sees John Kreese (played by Martin Kove) further escalate his plans to reestablish his domination of the San Fernando Valley karate scene.
The cast of the series confirmed that Kove and the character of Kreese are all but interchangeable at this point, though Kove is much nicer and fun to be around.
“He is Kreese on and off set,” Jacob Bertrand, who plays Hawk, told Variety during a recent junket for the show. “They yell ‘Cut!’ and he’s still sitting there glaring, grabbing the gi, he’s got a cigar going. He’s a real funny guy. He’s the sweetest man ever, but when he’s onset and Kreese comes out, it’s Marty.”
Season 3 of “Cobra Kai” was originally supposed to drop on Jan. 8, but Netflix announced on Christmas Eve that it was being moved up to Jan. 1. The show was previously renewed for a fourth season back in October.
