Netflix surprised fans in Los Angeles last night at Cobra Kai: Live & Bad Ass with a first-look teaser (watch below!) for Cobra Kai Season 5. This one-night-only celebration marked night seven of Netflix Is A Joke: The Festival.
In addition to the announcement that Cobra Kai Season 5 will premiere globally on September 9, 2022, the event brought together cast and producers for exclusive conversations, live performances and surprise guest appearances.
Following the shocking results of the All Valley Tournament, the fifth season finds Terry Silver expanding the Cobra Kai empire and trying to make his “No Mercy” style of karate the only game in town.
With Kreese behind bars and Johnny Lawrence setting karate aside to focus on repairing the damage he’s caused, Daniel LaRusso must call on an old friend for help.
Cobra Kai is written and executive produced by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg via their production company, Counterbalance Entertainment.
