Netflix announced in a video clip that Season 6 of ‘Cobra Kai’ will be its last. A premiere date hasn’t been set. with the video only saying it is “coming soon.”
Creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg said the decision to end the series is bittersweet: “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.”
Cobra Kai began as a YouTube series, s continuation of the ‘Karate Kid’ movie franchise with original stars Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reprising their roles. After two seasons at YouTube, the show moved to Netflix in 2020.
