Cobra Kai is a sequel series to the well-known Karate Kid films, and it originally aired on YouTube. Netflix has picked up the first two seasons, and season three is in the process of being made. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about whether Miguel Diaz (played by Xolo Maridueña) dies in the series.
Does Miguel die in Cobra Kai?
Cobra Kai is set after the events of Karate Kid and it follows the rivalry between Daniel LeRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka).
Johnny attempted to reopen the Cobra Kai dojo in order to help bullied teenagers build resilience.
Miguel was attacked by a group of bullies and he became Johnny’s first student at the dojo.
He also acts as the dojo’s housekeeper and Johnny becomes a father figure for him.
His fighting partner turned out to be Robby Keene (Tanner Buchanan) who is the son of Johnny.
In season two, Robby and Miguel got into a fight over relationships and Miguel seemed to have the upper hand.
He apologised to Robby and let him go, but an angry Robby kicked Miguel off a railing and he ended up in the hospital.
Miguel was left in a critical condition and while some fear he had broken his back, others believed he had died.
However actor Maridueña has hinted his character survives for season three, much to the delight of fans.
He posted on Twitter in 2019 he had finished filming season three.
He added: “Can not wait for you guys to see the amazing work this team has put together.
“I am thankful for everyone’s hard work and commitment and humbled to be a part of the #CobraKai familia.”
With this in mind, it seems Miguel will be back in season three, however it may not be for the whole season.
The actor’s co-stars finished filming a few weeks after him, in December, so that could indicate he leaves the series early.
Fans were quick to jump to Miguel’s defence at the end of season two, however, some also defended Robby, saying the incident was not all his fault.

Fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts on the season two finale.
One said: “If Miguel in Cobra Kai dies I’m never watching it again.”
Another fan said: “I’ve stayed a true neutral the whole time but Miguel deserved better #CobraKai.”
Viewers are hoping Miguel lives so he can form a relationship with Sam LaRusso (Mary Mouser).
One fan said: “Me waiting for Cobra Kai season three so Miguel and Sam are together.”
Maridueña has continued to keep fans up to date with the series on his Instagram profile.
He teased: “Excited for the future of Cobra Kai. But especially excited for the Ozark/Stranger Things/Cobra Kai Collab.”
Miguel had followed his mentor Johnny’s advice to show mercy and to not make the same mistakes he had when he was younger.
However his mercy causes Robby to take the upper hand, and viewers were left wondering if this was the end for Miguel.
