How time flies as Netflix’s Cobra Kai has already completed five seasons of karate goodness. The beloved series takes place over 30 years after the events of the 1984 “All Valley Karate Tournament”. Continuing the inescapable conflict between Ralph Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso and William Zabka’s Johnny Lawrence. We have witnessed for five seasons how their back-and-forth bickering has affected those around them including their community.
It would seem like this story could go on forever. But all things must eventually come to an end. On Friday, Netflix announced that they have renewed Cobra Kai for one final sixth season. They claim that this will be the biggest and baddest final season. Below is the video announcement narrated by Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence.
“Do you have one more fight in you?” It will be exciting to see how they wrap this story up. Overall it will be bittersweet to see it end but it’s better than prolonging a series that no longer has an interesting story to tell.
Cobra Kai premiered in 2018 on YouTube Red but then was moved to Netflix for the next four seasons.
The creators of the series Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg released a statement about the final season announcement.
“Reacquainting the world with the Karate Kid universe has been our humble honor,” they said. “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.”
You can stream the released five seasons now on Netflix.
