The spinoff to The Karate Kid film series, called Cobra Kai, has received a lot of praise from critics and fans alike. It stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, who reprise their roles of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence respectively.
Terry Silver made his first appearance in the 1989 film The Karate Kid Part III, portrayed by Thomas Ian Griffith. Silver remains one of the most well-liked antagonists in the franchise despite the film not being well-received by fans and critics alike.
The finale to season 3 of Cobra Kai hinted at the return of Terry Silver as John Kreese called him up for help. On Thursday morning, Netflix released a new teaser trailer for the upcoming fourth season of the show and it confirmed the return of Terry Silver. The teaser video featured a voiceover from the character, featuring lines of his dialogue from The Karate Kid Part III.
Executive producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg had previously revealed in a statement that they were biding their time in order to have Silver return in the best way possible.
“Since the beginning of the series, we’ve been carefully orchestrating the right moment to unleash Cobra Kai dojo co-founder Terry Silver back into the universe. That moment is now. We can’t wait for the whole world to experience Thomas Ian Griffith’s majestic return to the franchise.”
As reported earlier, the upcoming season of the series is slated to release in the Fall of this year. We will have to see how LaRusso and Lawrence will team up to take on John Kreese and Terry Silver, who no doubt have something sinister in mind.
