Since Cobra Kai season 1 premiered in 2018, fans of The Karate Kid have flocked to the Netflix series based on the ’80s classic, which has led to five seasons! But will the show receive a season 6? Keep reading for everything we know.

Will There Be a Cobra Kai Season 6?

While Netflix has yet to announce season 6 of Cobra Kai, fans are still hopeful as season 5 just recently premiered on September 9, 2022.

“Just finished season 5 of Cobra Kai. It was the best season EVER!!! Everyone was badass! I loved each and every second of it. I hope there will be a season 6,” wrote one fan on Twitter. “I’m so happy with how Cobra Kai Season 5 turned out,” wrote another fan on Twitter. “It was probably the best Season to date. I’d love a Season 6, although if Season 5 were to be the last, I wouldn’t be all that mad due to just how damn good that finale was. It felt like the perfect series finale.”

What Has the Cobra Kai Cast and Crew Said About Season 6?

“It hasn’t officially been picked up. I need to say that because that is the truth,” star Ralph Macchio told Us Weekly in September 2022. “[But] we’re feeling pretty good that we’ll get to continue the show and let it evolve and land when it needs to. These guys, Jon [Hurwitz], Josh [Heald] and Hayden [Schlossberg], who write this show, are just so great at [having] their finger on the pulse of what the fans want. They are the fans themselves.”

The Karate Kid actor assured that there is “more meat” and “plenty of places” to go for future seasons, including incorporating characters from the past. “Whether you bring in Tamlyn Tomita as Kumiko [in season 5 or] Elizabeth Shue in season 3. You [also] have Thomas Ian Griffith – what a great job he’s doing,” Ralph continued. Karate Kid 3 was never, ever my favorite of those three movies. Now it’s bearing such great fruit and storytelling and refined versions of characters.”

In July 2022, Cobra Kai producer and creator Jon Hurwitz reassured fans that he had plans for what lies ahead for the series, saying simply in a tweet: “All I can say is that we expect more Cobra Kai to come and that the Miyagiverse is far from finished.”

The director, who is also set to produce Netflix comedy series Obliterated with Cobra Kai collaborators Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald, also pretty much confirmed that ideas for season 6 were already forming. “Season 6 has not yet been written,” Jon wrote on Twitter. “Will get on that after filming Obliterated, but lots of kicka– ideas already percolating!”
