The beloved Karate Kid sequel series Cobra Kai will return sooner than some fans may have expected, with its fifth season set to premiere in less than a year. The fourth season of Cobra Kai was released on the final day of 2021, but Netflix has already confirmed that Season 5 is underway and nearing completion. Now, just a few months later, Netflix is already teasing us with new footage and a release date.
At the conclusion of a Cobra Kai panel at Netflix Is A Joke: The Festival in Los Angeles on Thursday, Netflix surprised fans by debuting a full teaser trailer and announcing the Season 5 premiere date. On September 9th, the new episodes will be available for streaming on Netflix. When Is Cobra Kai Season 5 Coming Out: Here’s What We Know.
Cobra Kai Season 5 Release Date
Although Season 3 of Cobra Kai ended with a couple of large cliffhangers, particularly when it was revealed that the All-Valley tournament has been won by Cobra Kai and Miyagi-Do had to close its doors, Season 4 offered plenty more shocks. Starting in Season 5, Terry Silver will take complete control of Cobra Kai and expand operations throughout the valley.
Is Cobra Kai Will Be The Final Season?
The final scene of Season 4 sees Daniel reuniting with Chozen, his old rival, in the hopes of joining forces to take down Silver. Following the debut of Season 4, co-creator Hayden Schlossberg spoke with ComicBook.com and explained what that surprise cameo could imply for Season 5.
“When Daniel went to Okinawa, we saw that Chozen had lived this life of shame, coming off the events of Karate Kid II,” explained Cobra Kai co-creator Hayden Schlossberg. “And that Daniel coming to Okinawa gave him an opportunity to redeem himself in his eyes. And we always felt that he showed him a couple moves, but he’s always going to feel that responsibility to help Daniel.”
“And so, the fact that at the end of Season 4, things are worse than they’ve ever been,” he continued. “Cobra Kai is more popular than it’s ever been, with Terry Silver relishing it and in full force and Daniel supposedly having to shut down Miyagi Do. That when you think about it from Daniel’s perspective, what does he have to come back from this?”
