During the fourth season of “Cobra Kai”, The bond between Johhny Lawrence (William Zabka) and Miguel Díaz (Xolo Maridueña) strengthened and their relationship changed from sensei-student to father-son. However, a mistake by the founder of Eagle Fang Karate ruined everything and motivated his disciple to search for his real father.
After losing to Terry Silver, Johnny got drunk and when Miguel helped him lay down Lawrence called him Robby, which definitely broke his heart. This, added to the injury he suffered in the All Valley karate tournament, helped him make the decision to know his origin.
“The last few months have been a roller coaster ride. My injury, rehab, Sam (Mary Mouser) and myself, sensei and Mr. LaRusso. I convinced myself that I could overcome it by concentrating on the tournament. I thought that if I won everything would work out, but I was wrong. Tell my sensei I’m sorry I left. His karate helped me grow, but I still don’t know who I want to be. And to find out, I think I need to know where I come from”Miguel wrote in a note to his mother.
“The sensei was afraid of discovering the truth of his past and, honestly, I was too. But overcoming that fear is the fight I have to put up instead of competing for a trophy. I must meet my father. It is something you need to do. Please try not to worry I’ll be safe and will be back soon”He added.
WILL MIGUEL BE BACK IN SEASON 5 OF “COBRA KAI”?
Although some fans of “Cobra KaiThey hope to learn more about Miguel’s past in the fifth season of the series Netflix, others fear that the actor Xolo Maridueña don’t come back for the next installment.
For now it is known that the fifth season was finished shooting even before the premiere of the fourth installment, therefore, Miguel is still part of the story and probably in the new chapters who his father will be revealed.
When Johnny promised to travel to Mexico City to bring Miguel back, Carmen revealed that her ex-partner is unaware of their son’s existence. Furthermore, he is known to be a very dangerous man.
Xolo Maridueña He hasn’t shared anything related to Miguel’s future on social media and he hasn’t shared a farewell message either, so he’s still part of the main cast of “Cobra Kai”.
The rumor of his departure probably arose from the fact that he was chosen to play Jaime Reyes in “Blue Beetle”, but the filming of this film only began in 2022, so the actor will have no problem to continue in “Cobra Kai”.
