Still from 'Obliterated.'

Fans of Cobra Kai have reason to celebrate. Although the Karate Kid sequel series was renewed for its sixth and final season this past January, the creators of the martial arts show—Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg—have a new comedy on the horizon, titled Obliterated. Oh, and it'll be hitting Netflix on November 30.

In this new raunchy comedy, a rag-tag group of armed forces members are assembled to help disengage a bomb that is set to destroy Las Vegas. When the job is done, the group celebrates with a wild night out on the town, partying into the next morning...however, their celebration is cut short when they discover that the bomb they detonated was actually a fake. Now, they have to find the real bomb quick, or risk destroying all of Sin City.

Based on the trailer alone, we can tell this show is going to be a riotous good time. Obliterated (which bears a double meaning in its title, in case you couldn't tell), features an all-star cast, including Nick Zano (Melrose Place), Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf), Terrence Terrell (Giants), C. Thomas Howell (The Outsiders), Alyson Gorske (Shrinking), Kimi Rutledge (Shrill), Paola Lázaro (The Walking Dead) and Eugene Kim (Brooklyn Nine-Nine).

If Cobra Kai is any indication, then Obliterated will end up being a huge hit for Netflix. In 2022, the popular martial arts show was the fourth most-watched original streaming series of the year, with over 16.7 billion (you heard that right—billion) minutes viewed. If anything, the mere buzz around the Cobra Kai creators making a new show will likely send Obliterated to the top of the streaming site's most-watched TV shows list.

All eight episodes of Obliterated will be available to stream on Netflix on November 30. We can't wait.
