Johnny plays the Uber, Daniel has a depression and Terry Silver takes control of Los Angeles, season 5 of Cobra Kai promises to be hard-hitting.
The start of the school year will be strong on Netflix. Cobra-Kai is preparing its big return to our screens, for a fifth burst of episodes. A few days before this release, the platform has just shared a first trailer. The opportunity for fans to find out what the future holds for their favorite characters. Unsurprisingly, the time is not yet for meditation. Our heroes will still distribute mandalas at will.
And for good reason, after the eviction of Kreese, another antagonist takes over. Terry Silver regained control of Cobra Kai, he seems determined to offer the ultimate sacrament to his dojo. Nevertheless, we must be wary of sleeping water, even in prison John Kreese is always one or two steps ahead. For their part, Johnny and Daniel seem to have put their grudges aside once and for all. Lawrence has also reconnected with his son and trains his students alongside his enemy of yesteryear.
We also find Miguel, when he has obviously gone in search of his father. He is not alone on this trip since Samantha and Robby seem to be there. Moreover, we can note the return of Yuji Okumoto in the skin of Chozen. The former enemy of Daniel Larusso should lend a hand to the small team.
The last season?
In its debut on YouTube, the series Cobra-Kai was not the most popular. To tell the truth, his success was rather muted. However, its arrival on Netflix was a game-changer. By producing the third season, and broadcasting the first two, the platform has given back its letters of nobility to the universe. Karate Kid. At a time when nostalgia is everywhere in cinema and on television, the return of Johnny Lawrence and Daniel Larusso is timely.
From now on, the creators hope to be able to continue the journey a little longer. Let the spectators be reassured, season five should not be the last. Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg would have considered spreading their narration over six bursts of episodes. For Ralph Macchio, who plays Daniel Larusso, it will nevertheless be a question of stopping at the height of glory. Asked by L.A.D. Biblethe 59-year-old actor confided in December 2020:
“The writers always imagined the plot over six seasons, and how far the story arcs could stretch. So the end will come when the time comes. We don’t want to do the season too much, but the fans are enjoying it and there’s still a lot to tell. As long as we are given the opportunity to play in this series, Billy and I will be on the trip!”
For now, season 6 has not been officially ordered by Netflix. The platform is probably waiting to be able to analyze the audiences for these new episodes before deciding. Given the success of the previous ones, and the impressive community it brings with it, there is little doubt that this is the case.
In a few days on Netflix
Cobra-Kai gets a little ahead of his schedule. While season 4 was broadcast on December 31, this new burst of episodes arrives four months earlier than expected. The appointment is fixed at next september 9, in just a few days. By then, we should be entitled to new images, just to make our mouths water. In any case, we are already won over to the cause.
