Season 5 of Netflix’s Cobra Kai has been allocated a release date
Cobra Kai, the beloved Karate Kid spinoff series, is getting a fifth season sooner than some fans probably imagined. Cobra Kai’s fourth season was released on the last day of 2021, however Netflix has already stated that Season 5 has been ordered and is nearing completion. After only a few months, the streaming service has teased us with some fresh footage and a debut date.
New episodes of the karate comedy-drama will premiere on Friday, September 9, according to a new teaser video, which shows Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) building the Cobra Kai empire while his old comrade John Kreese (Martin Kove) is unfairly serving time in prison.
Netflix stunned fans by uploading a complete teaser video and disclosing the Season 5 release date at the end of a Cobra Kai panel at Netflix Is A Joke: The Festival in Los Angeles on Thursday night.
“You’re playing with fire, Danny boy,” Terry warns Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio), who is working with Chozen Toguchi to pull the ponytailed baddie down a notch or two (Yuji Okumoto).
Cobra Kai’s fourth season concluded on a cliffhanger, with Cobra Kai winning the All-Valley tournament and driving Miyagi-Do out of business. Terry Silver takes full leadership of Cobra Kai (after framing Kreese) and expands to other locations throughout the valley in Season 5.
Cobra Kai has a big issue that needs to be addressed
The difficulties between Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and Daniel were previously discussed by co-showrunner Jon Hurwitz.
“He’s felt a little less than ever since that All Valley Tournament in high school where Daniel beat Johnny,” he added.
“He’s always felt second best or below that, and the next 30 years of his life proved it as he struggled with odd jobs, a bad connection with his son, and a lack of love in his life.
Cobra Kai rulers partner up with Netflix for procedural drama.
Hurwitz went on: “It’s only natural, even though they’ve buried the hatchet in a manner and are now working together.
“When Daniel begins to form a bond with Miguel – who is one of Johnny’s most significant relationships and acts as a surrogate son in a way – Johnny begins to believe that this long-time opponent is maybe a new, better role model for Miguel to look up to instead of him.”

Season 5 teaser
The clip picks up after the events of the Season 4 finale, in which Tory Nichols (Peyton List) won the All Valley Tournament and gave her dojo, Cobra Kai, a significant victory. She didn’t really win, though, as she realised in the last beats of last season.
Season 5 will see Chozen return, following the epic alliance between the Karate Kid himself Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and his foe Johnny Lawrence (Billy Zabka) (Yuji Okumoto). The teaser also shows a meeting between Johnny and his son Robby Keene (Tanner Buchanan), who set out to find Miguel Diaz in Mexico (Xolo Mariduena).
According to Variety, the show’s executive producers include Macchio, Zabka, showrunners Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg of Counterbalance Entertainment, Westbrook Entertainment’s Will Smith, James Lassiter, and Caleeb Pinkett, and Sony Pictures Television’s Susan Ekins
