Rumor of the week
A pinch of salt on the rumors we’ve heard (this idea is completely stolen from TheDisinsider – Sorry guys!). It could be right or wrong. Time will tell us.
Cobra Kai has quickly become one of Netflix’s biggest hits and we’re hearing the show may have spinoff in the form of a series of Mr. Miyagi prequels. Again, nothing official on this one, just something we heard * maybe * in the pipeline.
