Netflix has picked up Cobra Kai for a sixth season, and there have been lots of exciting new episodes. The sequel series of The Karate Kid, with William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence alongside Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso, was a worldwide hit according to the streamer, who bought Cobra Kai from YouTube’s Red platform in 2020. Seasons three, four, and five of Cobra Kai could only be seen on Netflix.
Mike Barnes from the third part of The Karate Kid is back in Cobra Kai season 5. He is played by Sean Kanan. By the end of the fifth season of Cobra Kai 5, the show’s main ideas had changed a lot.
The martial arts school had gone global, and characters who used to be foes were now working together. But there haven’t been many reports about Cobra Kai season 6. News about the next season hints at an even bigger plot than season 5.
Cobra Kai Season 6 : Release Date
There is no set date for when Season 6 of Cobra Kai will be available. However, co-creator of the show Josh Hurwitz recently said that the final season, which will be the sixth, could come out as early as 2024.
He told The Hollywood Reporter, “We will start filming as soon as the New Year comes.” “We’re sure it will be fun and rewarding.” We’re excited to go back to work. Cobra Kai fans all over the world can look forward to a great last season.
But it’s important to note that a release date in late 2024 is still just a guess for now. In fact, Netflix could easily say that the show will start in 2025 instead. We’ll add the official release date for Cobra Kai Season 6 to this page as soon as we have it.
Cobra Kai Season 6 : Trailer
Fans haven’t seen a video for season six of Cobra Kai 6 yet, but Netflix did share a peek when the show was picked up for a final season. The short video shows scenes from the three Karate Kid movies along with the Cobra Kai succession, getting fans ready for “one last fight.” There won’t be a video for the entire season 6 until after the show airs.
Cobra Kai Season 6 : Cast
Deadline was the first to report that the final episode of the sixth season would have a new cast member. An announcement was made there that C.S. Lee, who will soon be in Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender, would play Master Kim Sun-Young from the original film. As for repeat actors, you may already know that the movie Cobra Kai is a big group, and most of them are likely to play the same parts again.

Cobra Kai Season 6 : Storyline
After what happens in the first three Karate Kid movies, Johnny Lawrence tries to change his life in Cobra Kai. In order to do this, he goes back to his roots along with teaching Miguel Diaz, who is the first trainee in the newly established Cobra Kai.
Daniel gets very angry when Cobra Kai comes back because he is the bully from high school who caused him a lot of pain. This makes him decide to start his own dojo. In the fifth season, Daniel along with Johnny put past their differences to fight the new Cobra Kai led by Terry Silver.
LaRusso and Lawrence’s school will participate in the competition Sekai Taikai, which is the highest level of professional karate, after beating Silver. After the Silver is gone, there’s a power void. Kreese is no longer in jail, Mike Barnes has joined, while sensei Kim (her Hannah-Kim) is now the real boss of Cobra Kai.
Things are bound to get tense. A lot of storylines need to be finished in the last season of Cobra Kia. Johnny or Carmen are going to have a baby soon, Robby continues to try to aid Kenny, along with Miyagi-Do as well as Eagle Fang are going to the world’s biggest karate competition.
There are a lot of things to talk about, but this isn’t the first occasion that the show has had to handle several plots at once. Let’s hope the show stays on the landing. At the end of season 5, Cobra Kai seemed to have broken up.
Terry Silver was caught for his many crimes, and Kreese got away from jail. The fight between Miguel and Robby has also been forgotten, and Johnny has finally gotten used to being a family man. For now, it looks like everything is all wrapped up nicely. But the Sekai Takai event is still a long way off. It’s been called the “Super Bowl in Karate” by the show’s makers.
“We don’t know every one of the details in what that entails, other than that it’s the biggest game yet within the series,” said Schlossberg. “Let’s see how that goes.” For now, we’ll just say, “We have a lot of ideas for where we want to take these characters.”
There might be a world karate tournament planned, and Kreese or sensei Kim Da-Eun, with a big stake in Cobra Kai, are the only two bad guys left on the show who can lead the charge. Could they lead a new Sekai Takai team? It’s definitely an option, but don’t think that Kenny or Tory will join them.
Since they left the Cobra Kai behind, new figures (and contenders) must be brought out of hiding to fight Miyagi-do’s best students. Johnny is also dealing with having a second child. There won’t be any big jumps in time like in House of the Dragon, but a small one might help move the story along faster and make one among our favourite fan ideas stronger: Terry Silver could end up dying.
As Silver shakes off this human karate coil, he had to have one more move up his sleeve to aid the sensei and end the entire series in style. Keep an eye on this. During the streaming provider’s Tudum show, there took place a table read for season 6 of Cobra Kai. During the read, one part of what happened was told.
In one of his lines, Gianni DeCenzo, who plays Demetri Alexopoulos, said, “Victory-filled dojos live on forever, and for solitary competitors, the sky’s the limit…” But there is one thing we’ll need to do before we start: choose a name for our school. So, that school might be shut down in the last season of Cobra Kai, and it looks like a new one will start up in its place.
