Netflix is wrapping up its 2021 with a month of back-to-back originals. Series like Lost in Space and Money Heist debut their final seasons, award-season frontrunners including Don’t Look Up, The Power of the Dog, The Unforgivable, The Hand of God, and The Lost Daughter make their debut, and holiday-themed originals like Single All the Way, A Naija Christmas, and A California Christmas: City Lights premiere. And did we mention that highly anticipated new seasons of The Witcher, Cobra Kai, Emily in Paris, and Queer Eye also hit the service in December? Because that’s happening too.

Find out what else is joining them on Netflix and what’s leaving the service below.

Cobra Kai: Season 4 (2021)


Description: More than 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, the inescapable conflict between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) continues. Season 4 finds the Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang dojos joining forces to take down Cobra Kai at the All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament… and whoever loses must hang up their gi. As Samantha and Miguel try to maintain the dojo alliance and Robby goes all in at Cobra Kai, the fate of the Valley has never been more precarious. What tricks does Kreese have up his sleeve? Can Daniel and Johnny bury their decades-long hatchet to defeat Kreese? Or will Cobra Kai become the face of karate in the valley?
