Could there be a Cobra Kai season 6

Cobra Kai season 6

The latest instalment in Karate Kid spin-off Cobra Kai has shown again fan demand is still there and many fans have binged their way through all the series if they were late to the party but how much longer can the makers keep delivering the hit Netflix series.

The writers seem to have set up an obvious sixth season, but as we know all too well, a tantalising cliffhanger is sometimes not enough to ensure a series renewal – particularly from the cancellation-prone streamer.

However, it seems promising that Cobra Kai will avoid such a fate given the show’s huge popularity, which has propelled it to the number one spot on Netflix UK’s top ten chart (not to mention many other regions around the world).

While we await official confirmation from Netflix and the show’s creators, we’ve been busy gathering all the information we can find on what the future of Cobra Kai could look like. Read on for everything you need to know – and be warned, there are season 5 spoilers incoming.

Will there be a Cobra Kai season 6?

There’s no word yet on whether Cobra Kai season 6 will happen on Netflix, but the show’s latest batch of episodes enjoyed strong viewership and good reviews upon their debut – both of which are positive signs for renewal.

Co-showrunner Josh Heald hinted that he and his collaborators are keen to see the show continue and have some ideas for what could happen next.

“We have a few more tricks up our sleeve for where we go from here, but it does get bigger every year,” he explained. “And we’re trying at all times to make sure we’re not plagiarising ourselves at this point.

“You know, we’ve had tournament fights, we’ve had all-out riots. We’ve had fights on multiple platforms and places… [Season 5] is probably the most wall-to-wall fighting we’ve had in a finale.”

When could a potential Cobra Kai season 6 be released?

If Cobra Kai were to be renewed for a sixth season, fans may not have long to wait until the martial arts drama is back on our screens.

There was a brief wait of only nine months for season 5 of Cobra Kai, although this was only made possible by Netflix handing an early renewal to the show months before the fourth outing premiered.

The streamer has opted not to do so this time around, which means we could be looking at a return to the annual production cycle common of many shows in the streaming era.

With this in mind, it seems the earliest that Cobra Kai season 6 could debut would be autumn 2023.

Who could be in the cast of Cobra Kai season 6?

If Cobra Kai were to be renewed for another season, it’s quite likely that the show’s core cast led by Ralph Macchio (Daniel LaRusso), William Zabka (Johnny Lawrence) and Courtney Henggeler (Amanda LaRusso) would indeed return.

Fans have also gravitated towards new additions to the Karate Kid franchise in Xolo Maridueña (Miguel Diaz), Tanner Buchanan (Robby Keene) and Mary Mouser (Samantha LaRusso).

Meanwhile, the Cobra Kai season 5 finale set up the return of once-vanquished villain John Kreese, as played by Martin Kove, who is vying for revenge having spent time behind bars.

It spells trouble ahead (and no doubt plenty more brawls) if the story continues.

Is there a Cobra Kai season 6 trailer?

Not yet! The show hasn’t even be renewed for season 6 at the time of writing, so don’t expect a trailer for a little while.

Cobra Kai seasons 1-5 are available to stream on Netflix.
