Remember first when 'Cobra Kai' was released, and people lost their calm as this was the first time that? In the history of cinema, it was happening for the first time that even the spin-off series would have the OG cast of the actual movie which the series is 'inspired' from. As the season released and they rose to fame, they had a sense of pressure to live up to the expectation of its audience who helped them receive numerous awards and nominations. The third season was nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards.

Peyton says, "I love my relationship with Kreese and getting to act with Marty. But I think Kreese is a parental figure to Tory, and she doesn’t really have much guidance. So, for him to be locked up and to be away, it takes a major toll on her and it’s probably one of the hardest things she’s ever been through."
