SDCC 2019: 'Cobra Kai' young stars Xolo Mariduena, Tanner Buchanan and Mary Mouser share their hopes for their characters in season 3
The trio confessed they had no clue about what season 3 held for their characters as they hadn't received the scripts yet and the only thing they could do right now is hope
In an exclusive with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) during the ongoing San Diego Comic-Con 2019, 'Cobra Kai' stars Xolo Mariduena, Tanner Buchanan and Mary Mouser spoke about what they hoped for their characters in the upcoming season.
'Cobra Kai' season 2 had a shocking ending. Each character was left pondering about their futures by the end of the season. For Mariduena's Miguel Diaz, life hangs by a thread as he is knocked unconscious by Robby Keene (Tanner Buchanan), Johnny Lawrence's (William Zabka) estranged son during a no-holds-barred school fight between members of the Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do.
The trio confessed they had no clue about season 3 as they hadn't received the scripts yet. "The only thing we can have right now is hope," Mouser said. She also hopes her character would grow a lot more in the upcoming season. "She also feels responsible in some way for all that’s happened and hopefully she gets to make things right."
Mariduena joked that his character Miguel would have to stay away from relationships for a while. He also emphasized the relationship between his character and Johnny. "The bond between Miguel and Johnny is so important and season 3 hopefully brings them close," Mariduena said.
"Repairing is the word for Robby," Buchanan said. "I let everybody down in season 2, so there's a lot of cleaning up to do. Robby feels massive guilt because he owes everybody an explanation. He basically knocked a guy down."
"There’s nowhere he can go except up from here and it could possibly get worse for him," he added.
'Cobra Kai' season 3 premieres on YouTube Premium in September 2020.
