Editor’s Note: Cobra Kai Season 6 Is Officially confirmed By Netflix on 20th January 2023.
Cobra Kai Season 6 Official Announcement Video:
Despite the fact that Cobra Kai season 6 isn’t officially official, we anticipate hearing about it very soon given how popular the show is. Ralph Macchio, the show’s star, has continued plans for it, and the producers have also given us a few indications. We therefore have a solid notion of the path the Karate Kid sequel series will take despite the lack of official facts.
You’ve come to the correct place if you’re looking for some inside information about Cobra Kai season 6 cast members who are leaving and coming back. We discuss what is currently known about the Sekai Takai and make an educated prediction as to when it might be released. So why are you still waiting? This page is a detailed guide to Cobra Kai season 6.
Cobra Kai season 6: is it happening and when could it be released?
Co-creator Hayden Schlossberg told us there will be a “time and place” for a new announcement, but there is no official word on whether Cobra Kai season 6 will actually happen. He stated: “There is currently no official statement regarding [season 6 rumours], but we have several ideas. We are not at that moment or location right now to make things official.”
But Ralph Macchio has fanned the flames even more. He stated in a conversation with Us Magazine (opens in new tab), “Officially, it hasn’t been picked up. That is necessary for me to express since it is the truth. However, we’re pleased that we’ll be able to keep producing the show while allowing it to develop and air as needed.” He stated that he anticipates something happening “very soon” in a later interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast(opens in new tab).
So, it appears to be somewhat certain. However, the fourth season’s December 2021 release date and the fifth season’s September 2022 release date one-two punch is unlikely to be replicated. In essence, the two seasons were shot back-to-back, and as Jon Hurwitz informed us, “nothing” has been shot thus far. Despite the rumours that some of the season six scenes had already been shot, the discussion surrounding a Ralph Macchio interview with ComicBook.com(opens in new tab) hasn’t changed that.
Expect Netflix to make a choice, either positive or negative, at least 28 days following the release. The streamer often bases its decision to extend a season on those 28-day figures. With a show this popular, a formal announcement might be coming soon regardless of viewership numbers. In October, we wouldn’t be shocked to see one.
In terms of a release date, we may get a general timeframe from previous filming start periods. 11–12 months after production started, the fourth and fifth seasons were both broadcast. Season six should arrive a year after season five if that holds true once more. Early 2024 or late 2023 would not be out of the question.
Who could be in the Cobra Kai season 6 cast?
The majority of the Cobra Kai cast, if not all of them, are likely to return for a sixth season. Ralph Macchio and William Zabka would then be reprising their roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, respectively.
The Karate Kids—Xolo Mariduena, Mary Mouser, Tanner Buchanan, Jacob Bertrand, Peyton List, and Gianni DeCenzo—would accompany them. Oona O’Brien, an actor from Devon, might potentially be promoted to series regular. Courtney Henggeler, Vanessa Rubio, and Kim Da-actor, Eun’s Alicia Hannah-Kim, are all expected to return from the older cast. Mike Barnes of Sean Kanan and Yuji Okumoto of Chozen are perhaps bigger open questions; their futures are still uncertain depending on how the plot develops.
Martin Kove, a Kreese actor, would have a much bigger role in a prospective Cobra Kai season 6 following his dramatic jailbreak in the season five finale. Kreese, who escapes at the very end, is the only one who could potentially cause trouble, according to Jon Hurwitz. There is a lot of drama available.
What about Thomas Ian Griffith, who starred in Terry Silver? Hurwitz stated, “In terms of Terry Silver, this might be the end for him, or it might not. “With a character of his means and tenacity, you can never be sure. However, we adore Thomas Ian Griffith, and the past few years spent working with him have been incredible. We’ll see if we work with him more in the future.”
Possible Cobra Kai season 6 story and theories
Cobra Kai’s fifth season came to a close with Kreese escaping from prison, Terry Silver getting apprehended for his numerous crimes, and Cobra Kai appearing to be disbanded. Additionally, Miguel and Robby have put the past behind them, and Johnny is now finally settling into his new position as a family man.
It seems like everything is tied up neatly for the time being. However, the Sekai Takai event is still in the distance. The producers are planning a new season with the idea of making it the “Super Bowl of karate.”
Apart from the fact that it’s the biggest tournament in the series so far, Schlossberg said, “we don’t know all the specifics of what it entails. “We’ll watch to see how it all turns out. Let’s just say that we have many ideas for where we want to take these characters in the future.”
Kreese and sensei Kim Da-Eun, who has a sizable investment in Cobra Kai, are the show’s two remaining adversaries who could lead the charge in a global karate competition.
Could they bring a fresh group to Sekai Takai? Although it is undoubtedly an option, don’t anticipate Tory or Kenny to join them. Since the two have abandoned Cobra Kai, new personalities (and rivals) must emerge from the shadows to challenge Miyagi-top do’s pupils.
Johnny is also adjusting to being a father for a second time. One of our favourite fan theories—that Terry Silver might be dying—might be intensified by a small time jump—no House of the Dragon-style jumps here. In order to help the sensei end the series in style, Silver must have one more move under his sleeve if he is to slip off this mortal karate coil. Observe this space.
What else have the creators said about Cobra Kai season 6?
If a sixth season of Cobra Kai is confirmed, Hayden Schlossberg has hinted that things would get even better and bigger.
According to the co-creator, “it’s always starting from a place of how can we take it to the next level while being true to the original movie.” “I compare it to the Rocky movies: there’s always a fresh perspective, something that feels grander, or a return to the fundamentals of what it is.
But you already know what you’re going to get: awesome montages, Johnny being amazing, and the soap opera still has some major scenes left.”
The writers admitted to that they don’t like going over ground already covered either. They remarked, “It does become bigger every year, but we have a couple more tricks under our sleeves for where we go from here. And we constantly check to see that we aren’t copying ourselves at this point.
But there is one thing that is certain: it is not the end. The season 5 conclusion, as Jon Hurwitz said to us, was “designed to leave the audience with a different emotion at that point. We can understand how some viewers could interpret it as resembling a series ending, although Kreese is famous for saying in one of the first seasons, “Peace is merely a lull between wars,””
Added he, “We are eager to continue on. It appears like everything is well in the Valley! We’ll see how it develops.”
