Looking for something free to binge this weekend?

The first seasons of YouTube Premium’s breakout hit Cobra Kai, its Liza Koshy sitcom Liza on Demand and its sci-fi drama Impulse are now available free with ads “for a limited time.”

Cobra Kai

Cobra Kai’s free time will end this coming Thursday, September 12, so we’d suggest starting there. Season one, consisting of 10 half-hours, reignites the feud between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) more than 30 years after their original on-screen face-off in The Karate Kid.

Season two of the action comedy, which debuted on YouTube Premium in April, will drop free episodes every Wednesday for 10 weeks starting September 11. Each episode will be free, with ads, “for a limited time.”

A third season of Cobra Kai is set to start production soon.

Liza on Demand

Liza on Demand’s first season, consisting of eight half-hours, gets its laughs from the life of a young Los Angeles woman (Koshy) embracing the gig economy. Kimiko Glenn and Travis Coles co-star as her roommates.

Season two, again with eight episodes, will debut on Wednesday September 25. Everyone will be able to stream weekly episodes free with ads “for a limited time.” YouTube Premium subscribers, however, can access all eight episodes ad-free on the 25th.

Impulse

Season one of Impulse, consisting of 10 hours, stars Maddie Hasson as a rebellious, small-town teleporting teen coping with the aftermath of a traumatic event. Missi Pyle plays her mother.

Season two, with another 10 episodes, will debut on Wednesday, October 16. Everyone will be able to stream weekly episodes free with ads, “for a limited time.” YouTube Premium subscribers, however, can access all 10 episodes ad-free on October 16.

YouTube Premium, which had been called YouTube Red when all three of these series started out, still costs $11.99 per month or $6.99 for students. Both plans come with a one-month free trial. Visit youtube.com/premium to subscribe or for more info.
