Cobra Kai creators are already working on season 6
The creators of Cobra Kai want to make at least six seasons of the Netflix show.
Although the audience has just basked in the continuing greatness that is Cobra Kai season 4, co-creators Josh Heald and Josh Hurwitz are already looking this far into the future with a potential Season 6. During an interview with Collider, Heald revealed that the team behind the hugely popular Netflix show are now not only planning a sixth season, but also their ultimate final phase, while evolving characters and plot points throughout Cobra Kai run so far and in potential seasons to come.
“There are characters and storylines that we thought from the start we would have said, ‘Okay, that’s a season,’ and that storyline ended up being an episode or two. And then it is the opposite of where we say to you, “Okay, this is a season”, and now we’re going to extend it over several seasons. So we always looked at our original plan with our eyes open because with so much. new branches and so many new characters and interactions and what you see during production when, “Oh wow, these two people together, there’s something interesting about this duo” you want to lean more into. and when you lean more into it, it naturally pushes other things and further. It has sometimes changed, but neither has it. We always have an endgame plan. We always write to- beyond Season 5. But it was fun to bring these new characters and storylines and put them there. isser lead the way sometimes. “
Josh Heald’s co-writer, co-showrunner and Josh Josh Hurwitz added that they hope to make at least six seasons of Cobra Kai, and that while they clearly have an end to the story in mind, they don’t yet know how many seasons it will take to get there.
“We never said from the start how many seasons there would be. I think we always considered that at least six were sort of in our heads, but we’re still figuring out exactly how long it is. of that landing for all the reasons Josh mentioned. “
With the continued success of Cobra Kai, it’s pretty safe to assume that both Heald and Hurwitz will get their six seasons. At least. The fourth season of Cobra Kai, which hit Netflix on December 31, sees karate icons Kid Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) form an unstable alliance in order to combat the growing influence of John Kreese (Marton Kove). Things quickly get worse for our heroes as Kreese brings his own partner into the fray in the form of returning villain Terry Silver. Last seen in The Karate Kid Part III, Silver is a character many fans have been hoping to make a comeback, with the villainous duo sure to cause all kinds of chaos across the valley.
Cobra Kai Season 4 has received rave reviews from critics and the public, and is currently 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, which should bode well for a proposed Season 6 and beyond. Another good news is that Cobra Kai season 5 has already ended.
Cobra Kai creator Jon Hurwitz says he’s hopeful the series goes beyond Season 5, and there are more spinoff series planned in the Miyagiverse.
