Netflix has announced the premiere date of the long-awaited fifth season of cobra kai And it’s much sooner than we expected. The previous seasons -once they moved to the platform of streaming— were released at the end of each year. But this time it will come in the fall.
The fifth season of cobra kai the will come next september 9almost four months earlier than expected. It will pick up immediately after the events of the fourth season in which Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) manages to win the All Valley championship – albeit in a rather dirty way. Both Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (Billy Zabka) will have to join forces once and for all to face the new villain.
With the fifth season of Cobra Kai, two new characters join. Chozen Toguchi (Yuji Okumoto) who was LaRusso’s rival in karate kid 2, as shown at the end of the last episode of last season. Mike Barnes (Sean Kanan) also returns, who was another of Daniel’s enemies, but in karate kid 3. Although the role that the character will have in the series is unknown.
Months ago it was anticipated that the fifth season of Cobra Kai would solve one of the biggest mysteries of karate kid 3and it is possible that the presence of Mike Barnes is key in the resolution of that plot arc.
Along with the announcement of the premiere date, Netflix has published a series of new images that show a preview of what awaits us during the fifth season of cobra kai.
Cobra Kai, one of Netflix’s biggest hits
cobra kai originally premiered as original content on YouTube Red (now YouTube Premium) in 2018. The series was acquired by Netflix in 2020, once the Google platform decided to stop producing series. It was created by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg. Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Will Smith, James Lassiter, Caleeb Pinkett, and Susan Ekins serve as executive producers.
After the move from YouTube to Netflix, cobra kai acquired much more relevance and a significantly larger audience. platform streaming has produced three seasons: the third and fourth were highly successful. The fifth will arrive in a few weeks and aims to be the most viewed of all. At least one more is expected.
The reasons why Netflix has decided to advance the premiere of the fifth season of cobra kai they are not clear. But it probably responds to the drop in subscribers that the platform has experienced throughout 2022.
Many of the great TV productions in the United States premiere new seasons in the fall, with cobra kai It seems that Netflix is following the steps and will offer new content of one of its most popular series long before the end of the year and thus try to regain audience.
