Cobra Kai never dies, or so they say… but is the show preparing to end with one last, ultimate smackdown?
Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso have finally found the secret to burying their decades-long feud, and that’s finding someone else to team up against. Luckily there was no better enemy to take down than Terry Silver and his growing horde of obsessed Cobra Kai dojo members.
Finally establishing the balance between their ying/yang ways of life, it seems they are actually learning from each other (crazier things have happened!)
Season six hasn’t had the official nod yet, but Macchio (via Collider) is confident it’ll happen soon.
“It has become a little bit the Marvel Cinematic… Karate Kid cinematic universe. There are other ideas, other spinoff ideas, more length to the Cobra Kai series, although we don’t have an official season six pick-up yet. That’s the question I’ve been getting at every interview. We don’t have that yet, but we feel confident thanks to all you folks that want to watch it that we’ll have more life in what was born in the fall of 1983 when we were making this movie, The Karate Kid. Who knew?”
But what now? Is there going to be a season six, or did that season five ending mark the end of the story?
Here’s everything you need to know about what lies ahead.
Cobra Kai season 6 potential release date: When is it back?
Currently, there’s no official confirmation of Cobra Kai season six… but there’s definitely been some chat from the showrunners about continuing the story.
In July 2022, Jon Hurwitz reassured fans that he had plans for what lies ahead for the series, saying in a tweet: “All I can say is that we expect more Cobra Kai to come and that the Miyagiverse is far from finished.”
But it seems season six is somewhat a given, and shortly after the show’s release Hurwitz again commented on Twitter: “Season 6 has not yet been written. Will get on that after filming Obliterated, but lots of kickass ideas already percolating! #CobraKai”
It took Cobra Kai less than a day to shoot up into Netflix’s number one spot on the charts, proving there’s a lot of anticipation and love for the show.
Surely it’s only a matter of time before we hear they’ve been given the go-ahead.
We’ll let you know as soon as we know more.
