‘Cobra Kai’ Season 6: Details on the Cast, Trailer, Release Date & More

We have some kicking good news for Cobra Kai fans (with a little bit of bad news sprinkled in...).

Netflix announced that the action series has been renewed for season six. But sadly, this will be the show’s final season. On January 20, the streaming service released the official announcement video across its social media platforms, which included a “highlight reel” of the biggest moments from the show. Understandably, fans aren’t ready to bid farewell to the martial arts drama. But on a brighter note, there’s plenty to look forward to with Cobra Kai season 6 on the horizon. Keep scrolling for details.

1. Is Cobra Kai returning for season 6?

Netflix confirmed that season six is a go by releasing a short trailer earlier this year. The streaming platform teased that this season will be the series’ “biggest and baddest” one to date, featuring a few highlights from the decades-long karate saga. 

2. Is it true that this will be the final season?

Unfortunately, yes. Series creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg confirmed the news in a special letter to fans. They took a moment to celebrate the Cobra Kai series and revealed that it’s been a pleasure to continue the story of Danny LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence.

The letter read, "Our day one goal with Cobra Kai has always been to end it on our terms, leaving the valley in the time and place we've always imagined. So, it is with immense pride and thankfulness that we are able to announce that achievement. The upcoming season six will mark the conclusion of Cobra Kai."

It continued, “While this may be a bittersweet day for the fandom, the Miyagiverse has never been stronger. This fandom is the BEST on the planet and we hope to be telling more Karate Kid stories with you down the line. Because as we all know, Cobra Kai Never Dies.”


3. What will Cobra Kai season 6 be about?

There’s no word yet on what the plot will be. But since karate frenemies Daniel (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny (William Zabka) joined forces to defeat Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) in season five, it’s very likely that season six will introduce a notorious new villain.

When asked if Kreese (played by Martin Kove) will return as the main villain in season six, Schlossberg told Variety, “We liked the idea that for a lot of the characters it feels like, ‘We did it. It’s over. Cobra Kai is done.’ Meanwhile, there’s the ultimate Cobra Kai snake out there that is really pissed off at everybody right now. We’ll see if life goes on easy in season six, or if Kreese has something to say. Something tells me that it’s going to be the latter.”


4. Who stars in Cobra Kai season 6?

It’s worth noting that cast members haven’t been confirmed just yet. However, fan favorites from season five will probably reprise their roles, including Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Vanessa Rubio, Courtney Henggeler, Xolo Maridueña, Peyton List, Tanner Buchanan, Jacob Bertrand and Mary Mouser.


5. Is there a premiere date for Cobra Kai season 6?

Since filming hasn’t begun, Netflix hasn’t confirmed a premiere date. However, Deadline reports that production will begin in late spring.

Until then, we’ll be stalking checking Netflix’s social media accounts for updates.
