Here's Why Dutch Didn't Join The Reunion In Cobra Kai Season Two

Here's Why Dutch Didn't Join The Reunion In Cobra Kai Season Two

Ever wondered why the character of Dutch doesn't show up in series two of Netflix's Cobra Kai series, despite the fact that they brought a load of characters back from the original film trilogy?

First off, the absence has been explained in the world of the Netflix show by suggesting that Dutch - played by Chad McQueen - is locked up in Lompoc Federal Prison for a crime that is never revealed.

But in real life, McQueen gave up acting back in 2001 to become a racing driver, which is a heck of a lot cooler.

Another interesting thing to note there is Chad's surname - McQueen.

Yes, he's the son of Steve McQueen - not the director of Shame and 12 Years a Slave, but the star of films such as The Magnificent Seven, The Thomas Crown Affair, and - of course - The Great Escape.

It is thought that McQueen was approached to appear in the reunion, which took place in an episode in which all of the old Cobra Kai guys got back together.

Rob Garrison returned as Tommy, Ron Thomas was back to play Bobby, Tony O'Dell featured as Jimmy, but there was no return for McQueen as Dutch.

Netflix Renews Cobra Kai For A Fourth Season

published at23 days ago

The series - in case this is making no sense whatsoever to you - follows the tale of Johnny Lawrence, played by William Zapka again, and Daniel LaRusso, played by Ralph Macchio.

The pair are thrown together once again nearly three decades after they first took a disliking for each other, and have become bitter rivals once more.

Of course, there's some young blood involved too, but it's the old guys who are making the running at least some of the time.

It's doubly sad that McQueen's schedule couldn't allow him to be present at the reunion, because Rob Garrison has now passed away from cancer - a disease that his character Tommy is also fighting - meaning that any full future on-screen reunion is forever impossible.

However, Dutch could come back in the future, according to showrunners Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, ad Josh Heald.

They have discussed the options with McQueen and decided to put the character in prison. That means that season three, when it's completed, could see him retake the role.
