After his appearance was teased at the end of series 3, Terry Silver has officially been confirmed for Cobra Kai Season 4.
Netflix made the announcement, with a teaser trailer that gives us a look at the return of the villain, who made his debut in The Karate Kid Part III. Thomas Ian Griffith is returning to the role.
In the teaser below, Griffith stands with his back to the camera as some of Silver’s dialogue plays in a voice-over: “If a man can’t stand, he can’t fight. If a man can’t breathe, he can’t fight. If a man can’t see, he can’t fight.”
Terry Silver is the founder of the Cobra Kai dojo, we even got to see some of his backstory in a series 3 flashback involving John Kreese.
Executive producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg said in a statement:
“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.”
