One of the few minor characters that were introduced in Season 4 of Cobra Kai was Devon Lee (Oona O’Brien), a member of the West Valley Debate Team and a student of Johnny Lawrence’s newly created Eagle Fang Karate dojo. Devon quickly showed a natural talent for karate, and while her season 4 story ended with a tournament elimination at the hands of Tori Nichols (Peyton List), online fans are hoping they’ll see more of Devon in the upcoming season.
“I want to see more Devon! She is gorgeous!” wrote you/JordanLeigh7 on reddit. “Una O’Brien is amazing!” repeated y/jcestr. “I want to see her more often.” Some fans throughout the thread have even claimed that they would like to see Devon become the main character of the series along with some other more prominent karate students.
Luckily, it seems like fans might be getting just that, as O’Brien herself has hinted that the show will have more details on Devon’s backstory during season 5. When asked about Devon’s backstory during an interview with Cobra Kai Kid on YouTubeO’Brien stated, “I think we’re going to go deeper into that in Season 5… (laughs) yeah, I won’t talk about it much.”
Considering how hugely popular Devon’s character is, fans would no doubt be very happy to see Devon get more screen time in Season 5, and it will be interesting to see how her story goes when the new season airs on September 9th.
