History is repeating itself for the Cobra Kai team. No, Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald haven't sold a time-loop comedy drama anywhere, they're instead seeing a project move from one venue to Netflix. In this case, it's action-comedy series Obliterated.

Back in 2019, US cable network TBS picked up the show with a straight-to-series order, but instead it went straight into development limbo and the channel dropped it. Now the streaming service, which has seen big success with Cobra Kai (which it took over from YouTube after that company decided to end its scripted series), has handed out an eight-episode first season order for the new show.

Obliterated is described as a high-octane action-comedy that tells the story of an elite special forces team who thwarts a deadly threat to Las Vegas. After their celebratory party, filled with booze, drugs and sex, the team discovers that the bomb they deactivated was a fake. The now intoxicated team has to fight through their impairments, overcome their personal issues, find the real bomb, and save the world.

The trio will executive produce the new show and direct multiple episodes and given how successful they've been with their update of the Karate Kid franchise, this is one we're certainly anticipating.

Don't go worrying that this means the end of Cobra Kai, though – at least, not yet. Season 5 has already wrapped shooting and should be on screens later this year.
