To be fair, fans of Karate Kid waited more than three decades from the first film to the series' release, and then more than 18 months between the second and third series, but it seems as if they're not hanging around when it comes to season four.
The series' completion was announced on Twitter by stars William Zabka and Martin Kove.
Zabka wrote: "After 3 1/2 months of production, I'm proud to say [Cobra Kai season four] is officially wrapped!
"Ready???! LET'S BEGIN!"
The actor, who plays Johnny Lawrence, also added in some snazzy action shots of himself wearing a rather fetching face mask, which perhaps gives a clue as to why it took three and a half months to record, given Covid-19 restrictions.

His colleague Kove, who plays the sinister villain John Kreese in the Karate Kid flicks and Cobra Kai, shared a reference-laden post celebrating the show wrapping up.
He said: "Tonight, myself and the entire crew of COBRA KAI S4 officially wrapped! What a season, And what a year.
"A crew that is fearless and shows no mercy, through Covid we pushed on, we striked first and with a cast that strikes hard! @jonhurwitz @healdrules & @haydenschlossberg101 you have more energy than I knew was humanly possible."

"The Captains of our cobra Kai ship, leading us to glory daily, without your leadership we would be lost in the waters.
"Thank you @netflix and @sptv for allowing us to sweep the leg day in and day out. To @ralph_macchio & @william_zabka the battle rages on!
"I couldn't be more humbled to work along side you both. Who put the work in day in and day out and day in and day out. And to the fans.....well....the real story has only just begun....but you know that! So get ready because COBRA KAI....NEVER...DIES!!!!"
Cobra Kai is set to return to Netflix in late 2021, alongside a whole host of other big hitters from the streaming platform such as You and The Witcher.
