Renewed Or Cancelled?
If you’re a fan of Cobra Kai, the spin-off series to The Karate Kid movies that were released back in the 1980s, you are probably hoping for a sixth season of this popular show.
But has Cobra Kai been renewed for Season 6? Or have the chances of another season been beaten into submission by the Netflix powers-that-be?
Here’s what we know at the time of writing:
What happened in Cobra Kai Season 5?
We won’t go into major plot specifics in case you haven’t seen Season 5 yet. But as a basic rundown of the plot, we will tell you that Johnny and Daniel finally became friends (of a sort) and they teamed up to take down the new head of Cobra Kai, the merciless Terry Silver. Elsewhere, we caught up with John Kreese in prison where he seemingly started to become a better person.
Did Kreese turn over a new leaf? Did Johnny and Danny take Silver down? Were there any episodes where ass-kicking didn’t take place?
Will Cobra Kai get a sixth season?
Netflix have now officially made a decision over the karate action thriller…and it’s good news! The show has officially been renewed for a sixth and final season, which will likely drop sometime at the end of this year or early 2024.
In an interview with Variety, Hurwitz said this about Season 6:
“We have more story to tell; we’re still figuring out the specifics of that. We’re in the midst of filming another series that we created and are showrunning called “Obliterated” for Netflix, which is another passion project of ours… After a long day shooting “Obliterated,” the talk turns to “Cobra Kai” very frequently. There’s plenty in store, lots of thoughts going forward. There’s a lot we want to do with these characters and we’re giddy about that next step.”
Hurwitz’s comments have certainly gone down well and there’s even an official announcement video too!
What could happen in Cobra Kai Season 6?
If you have seen Season 5, you will know that it ended on a positive note. Robby and Miguel became friends, Johnny discovered he was about to become a dad again, and Silver got his comeuppance.
On a less positive note, Kreese went into full-psycho mode and escaped from prison!
What does this mean for Season 6? We don’t know exact plot details at present but the series co-creators hinted at a few possible plot threads in the Variety article. This included a discussion on Kreese and how he might impact the season. Schlossberg said:
Meanwhile, there’s the ultimate Cobra Kai snake out there that is really pissed off at everybody right now. We’ll see if life goes on easy in Season 6, or if Kreese has something to say. Something tells me that it’s going to be the latter.
Heald talked about Johnny and the next steps in his journey. He said:
The fact that there is a baby on the way is certainly a crucial piece of growth for Johnny Lawrence and a big evolutionary leap for his relationship with Miguel, Robby and Carmen.
The team also speculated about life outside of the Valley for the karate-loving teens with a hint that they might take part in the International Karate Tournament.
We expect more plot details in the months following Season 6’s official announcement, but let us know what you want to happen in the next season by leaving us a comment below.
