Cobra Kai never dies. No, seriously—new seasons of the Netflix show just keep on coming!
We knew that the sequel series to the hit '80s movie The Karate Kid would return for a fifth season—and now we finally know when. This is huge news for the show's biggest fans, like Ree Drummond, who quickly fell in love with Cobra Kai's quirky humor, star-studded cast, and unpredictable plot. (All the appearances by one of Ree's celeb crushes, William Zabka, didn't hurt, either!)
We now know a little more about what to expect from season 5 after Netflix released the official trailer, and, oh, our minds are racing! Keep reading to find out what's in store.
When will Cobra Kai season 5 be released?
It's official, everyone: Cobra Kai season 5 is set to be released on September 9, 2022! Netflix confirmed this date by adding it to the end of the thrilling trailer they put out recently. In just a few short months, we will return to living vicariously through the on-screen adventures of our favorite Cobra Kai characters.
Is the full Cobra Kai cast coming back?
From what we can see, yes! Daniel, Johnny, Miguel, Samantha, and Robby are integral parts of the ongoing story, and it would be tough to imagine Cobra Kai without them. Thankfully, Netflix agrees with us, and our favorite characters will be returning to our screens in September. 🙌
What will season 5 of Cobra Kai be about?
In a rivalry that feels like it was dug up from our wildest dreams, the iconic villains from the films The Karate Kid Part II and The Karate Kid Part III (Terry Silver and
Chozen Toguchi) will face off in a heated encounter. This is followed by Johnny and Robby taking a road trip to Mexico to look for Miguel as he continues his own search for his father. Some unlikely alliances are formed, with Daniel and Chozen teaming up to put a stop to Terry's plans as he tries to open up a Cobra Kai dojo on essentially every corner in California.
This trailer has no doubt sparked tons of fan theories, so feel free to kick off that discussion in our comments!
We told you—Cobra Kai never, ever dies! 🐍
