What will happen to Miguel in Cobra Kai season 3?

Cobra Kai season 3 is only a few days away on Netflix, and fans are eager to find out what’s going to happen with Miguel (Xolo Maridueno) in the new season.

At the end of season 2, Miguel winds up in the hospital following the karate brawl at school. Robby, accidentally or on purpose, knocks Miguel off the balcony and he falls a full story, hits a rail, and is knocked out. We don’t know the extent, yet, of Miguel’s injuries or what’s going to happen.

FanSided talked with Xolo Maridueno about what’s next for Miguel in season 3 and how the events of the finale will change Miguel’s relationship with Johnny.

“I think, just like with any role model, Miguel instilled a lot of trust into Johnny with his word,” Maridueno said. “And I think having it backfire at the most crucial moment really is going to be a test on their relationship. Fortunately, I feel like they have been through enough already to move past it, but I don’t think it’s going to come without its challenges. Miguel, all he wants more than anything is to make Johnny proud.”

It’s true that Johnny and Miguel have weathered a few storms, so to speak, in the first two seasons. It will be interesting, given what Zabka said about Johnny’s feelings heading in season 3, how Johnny can try to make things right and if Miguel will even be receptive to that.

Maridueno had a few thoughts on that, as well.

“How am I supposed to trust what you (Johnny) say anymore?” Maridueno said. “I think that’s going to be a question that’s asked in a bunch of different ways in season 3, but I hope it’s nothing that Miguel and Johnny can’t figure out.”

Johnny and Miguel’s relationship is probably the most interesting aspect of the show. Because Johnny has been such a bad father, he sees Miguel as his do-over of sorts. He can’t make things right with Robby yet, but he can but a good person and teach Miguel the right way to do things. Well, as Maridueno pointed out, the right way almost killed Miguel.

How does Johnny respond to what happened to Miguel and how does it change the way he approaches his relationship with Robby? There are so many stories converging, and that keeps the audience on their toes.

We’ll find out what happens to Miguel and Robby in Cobra Kai season 3 on Jan. 1.

And, we have some more good news to share. Cobra Kai season 4 is already happening. Netflix renewed the series for another season earlier this year.

We can’t wait to see what happens in the new season!
