Netflix regularly shows which films and series are streamed the most around the world. At the beginning of the year one dominated Netflix series the top 10. All four available seasons charted. A week later it stayed there.

This Netflix series stormed the charts

Since December 31, 2021 you can stream the fourth season “Cobra Kai” on Netflix. Today we see how popular the series is. In the worldwide top 10 of the streaming service, it is in first place from January 3rd to 9th. But there is more: Seasons 1 to 3 can also be found there. Thus, the Netflix series dominated the charts during this time.

These are the English top 10 Netflix series from 3rd to 9th January 2022:

series weeks in the top 10 seen hours
1 Cobra Kai Season 4 2 107,810,000
2 “Whoever Lies” miniseries 2 91,180,000
3 The Witcher Season 2 4 57,340,000
4 Emily In Paris Season 2 3 50,540,000

9 Cobra Kai Season 3 1 20,100,000
10 Cobra Kai Season 2 1 19,340,000

Globally, “Cobra Kai” is still in the top 10. However, it now seems like fans have already seen the first and second seasons. Because now seasons 3 and 4 can still be found in the charts. This is the data from 10th to 16th January 2022:

series weeks in the top 10 seen hours
1 “Whoever Lies” miniseries 3 53,720,000
2 Cobra Kai Season 4 3 41,240,000
3 The Witcher Season 2 5 34,350,000
4 Emily in Paris Season 2 4 30,020,000
5 Cheer season 2 1 29,080,000
6 Manifesto Season 1 8th 28,120,000
7 Archive 81 Season 1 1 22,220,000
8th The Witcher Season 1 6 18,580,000
9 Manifesto Season 2 3 14,810,000
10 Cobra Kai Season 3 2 13,950,000

The charts also show: “The Witcher” was very popular in the week shown. Both available seasons have been in the charts for five and six weeks respectively.

Data from 17 to 23 January 2022 are not yet available. We can be curious if “Cobra Kai” can be found in the charts for a third week. Experience has shown that last week’s data should be published today. But what we can already say is that the “Cobra Kai” is currently in tenth place in the top 10 series, at least in Germany.

Cobra Kai: What is it about?

Cobra Kai is based on Robert Mark Kamen’s The Karate Kid trilogy, which appeared in the 1980s. The series takes place 34 years after the first film. William Zabka and Ralph Macchio reprise their roles as Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso.

Decades after the tournament that changed Johnny and Daniel, the rivalry between the two now-grown men reignites…

Ralph Macchio has received many offers to reprise his role as the Karate Kid in recent years. But he was never convinced of the ideas. In 2020 he revealed in an interview with Uproxx:

“I’ve heard many, many pitches and ideas in over 30 years as to why we should return to this world, but nothing seemed right. It’s always been easier to say no and keep the legacy because I’m very protective of it. Also, the suggestions were never smart enough. Now that was a smart idea at a time when we have these streaming platforms. Now we have the opportunity to make these five-hour films that are broken down into 10 half-hour parts. They let the characters breathe, and it doesn’t have to fit into a two-hour cinematic sequel that has to be louder, faster, funnier, bigger.”

Fun fact about Zabka & Macchio

William Zabka and Ralph Maccio co-star as themselves in the hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother. In the episode Bro Mitzva (Season 8, Episode 22), the show’s friends celebrate Barney Stinson’s bachelor party (Neil Patrick Harris). Here we learn that Barney’s “eternal idol” is the Karate Kid. However, for him, unlike the rest of the world, it is not Ralph Macchio, but Johnny actor William Zabka.

“I hate Ralph Macchio. I hate hate hate that guy. The guy isn’t the karate kid. The Karate Kid was William Zabka. The star student of the Cobra Kai dojo, who was lawfully left kicked by this monster in the most tragic and harrowing ending to a movie ever made.”

In addition to Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, the following actors are also involved in the series:

  • Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz
  • Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso
  • Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene
  • Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso
  • Jacob Bertrand as Eli ‘Hawk’ Moskowitz
  • Gianni DeCenzo as Demetri
  • Martin Kove as John Kreese
  • Owen Morgan as Bert
  • Vanessa Rubio as Carmen Diaz
  • Aedin Mincks as Mitch
  • Peyton List as Tory Nichols

You can currently stream all three Karate Kid movies on Netflix if you want to revisit the trilogy ahead of the Netflix series. Incidentally, fans can already look forward to it: There will also be “Cobra Kai” Season 5. Here you can find out when and how it could continue. In addition, the creators seem to have plans for “Cobra Kai” on Netflix.

In addition, Netflix offers you these films and series in January 2022. Are you already through? We recommend these three Netflix miniseries.
