Cobra Kai Season 5: We Have Exciting Information About Release Date!
With just over a month until the premiere of Cobra Kai season 4, co-creator Jon Hurwitz confirms that Season 5 is expected on 12, August 2022. Season 1 of the sequel series to the original The Karate Kid trilogy premiered on YouTube Red in 2018, with season 2 following in 2019. However, due to YouTube’s decision to stop producing original scripted programming after season 3, the show was left without a home. Netflix purchased Cobra Kai’s rights in June 2020 and released Season 3 on January 1, 2021, with Season 4 set to premiere nearly a year later on December 31.
Cobra Kai follows the lives of Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso 34 years after Daniel, under the tutelage of Mr. Miyagi (played by the legendary Pat Morita), defeats Johnny in the 1984 All-Valley Karate Tournament. This time, their rivalry is reignited by the reopening of the Cobra Kai karate dojo, and they are joined by a new generation of kids and aspiring martial artists. Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reprise their roles as Daniel and Johnny, respectively. Martin Cove reprises his role as the infamous John Kreese from the original films, and Thomas Ian Griffiths joins the cast in season 4 to reprise his role as Terry Silver from The Karate Kid III.

Cobra Kai co-creator Jon Hurwitz has now responded to some fan questions about the show on Twitter. He confirmed that filming for the final episodes of Season 5 is still going on and stated that he couldn’t reveal any more details about the story because “whatever I’d say would be a spoiler.” Read on to find out what he had to say:
After the New Year’s Day premiere of season 3, there was some doubt about whether viewers would be able to see Cobra Kai season 4 in 2021. However, the announcement of the season 4 release date in September, along with a new trailer, sparked a lot of excitement and buzz among fans. The subsequent renewal of Cobra Kai season 5 in August of this year, even before season 4 debuted, was unsurprising given that it is one of Netflix’s most popular series, reaching No. 1 in 28 countries.
There is no word on how many seasons of Cobra Kai fans will be treated to, as the show’s end date has yet to be announced. Despite this, Hurwitz did state earlier in his Twitter Q&A that “we know where we’re going” with the story, which bodes well for the show’s future. Cobra Kai will be looking to break past the typical 3-4 season model of the most popular on-demand streaming service, and Hurwitz’s comments suggest that audiences and fans worldwide will be seeing a lot more from the “Miyagi-Verse” in the near future.
