Netflix has given the green light to Cobra Kai Season 6, which will wrap up the popular series on the streaming service. You can watch the new announcement video below!
The fifth season of the series premiered globally on Netflix September 9, 2022. A premiere date for Cobra Kai Season 6 has not been revealed yet.
In an open letter to the fans, executive producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg shared the news about the series’ conclusion.
“‘Paradise at last… We made it.’ – Lucille LaRusso. When Daniel LaRusso arrived in the Valley with his mother in 1984, little did he know that his life was about to be forever changed,” said Heald, Hurwitz and Schlossberg.
“The same went for three young kids from New Jersey who hadn’t yet met one another. Daniel’s journey from bullied teen to underdog hero became an indelible part of our childhoods, and something that we would always carry with us in our hearts.
“Reacquainting the world with The Karate Kid universe has been our humble honor. Making Cobra Kai has allowed us to join the same hallowed dojo once inhabited by the great Robert Mark Kamen, John Avildsen, Jerry Weintraub, and all the amazing original cast members.
“It has also enabled us to play sensei, expanding the original storylines and birthing a new generation of underdogs. We’ve never once taken this opportunity for granted.
“Our day one goal with Cobra Kai has always been to end it on our terms, leaving the Valley in the time and place we’ve always imagined. So it is with immense pride and thankfulness that we are able to announce that achievement.
“The upcoming Season Six will mark the conclusion of Cobra Kai. While this may be a bittersweet day for the fandom, the Miyagiverse has never been stronger. This fandom is the BEST on the planet and we hope to be telling more Karate Kid stories with you down the line. Because as we all know, Cobra Kai Never Dies.
“In the meantime, strap in for the BIGGEST SEASON OF COBRA KAI YET. And let today be a celebration of all that’s come, as well as all that’s still left to be told. We couldn’t do it without you. We made it. Strike First. Strike Hard. No Mercy.”
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.
