Even while everyone knows that Cobra Kai will always be alive, the fight to shut down the dojo has never been more desperate after the events of the season four finale.
The reign of Miyagi-Do appears to have come to an end, and the rising of Terry Silver has just begun. The fact that Kreese will not be joining us is even more startling. But is the Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang alliance really over, or will other, unforeseen alliances spring up and fight back? Until the next season of Netflix’s Karate Kid-inspired series comes around, here’s what we know about season 5.
When can we expect new episodes?
It’s not the Cobra Kai way, but sadly you’ll have to give the production staff some leniency when it comes to this situation.
Season five is definitely coming, but it appears we’ll have to wait until the end of December 2021 to get our hands on it. Netflix has released new seasons of the show on New Year’s Day (season three) and New Year’s Eve since it was acquired from YouTube Red/Premium by Netflix (season four).
Who will star in the upcoming fifth season of Cobra Kai?
Season 4 of Cobra Kai revealed that the following actors would be returning: Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso, William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence, Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz, Jacob Bertrand as Hawk, Thomas Ian Griffith as Terry Silver, Peyton List as Tory Nichols, Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso, Tanner Buchanan, Gianni DeCenzo, Owen Morgan, Aedin Mincks, Mary Mouser, Dallas Dupree, Joe Seo, Hannah Kepple, and Khalil Everage as Chris
What is the season 5 plot of Cobra Kai?
Terry Silver double-crosses Kreese and has him arrested in the season four finale of Cobra Kai.
After his arrest for the attack on Stingray, Silver has reverted to his old, violent and evil ways, thus forcing him out of Cobra Kai and the expansion. As a replacement for Kreese, Silver poses a greater threat because he doesn’t appear to have as many evident weaknesses. Which is made worse by the fact that Miyago-Do is no longer a working dojo as a result of their wager on the All-Valley tournament. Toby’s knowledge that Silver paid off the referee that helped seal Cobra Kai’s victory may contain the key, though. Will the softening of her steely façade be the catalyst for her to break away from the squad??
During this time, Johnny is preoccupied with the task of locating Miguel, who has gone to Mexico in order to see his father, who has no idea that he is even alive. Season five will be marked by the return of Chozen from Karate Kid II, who returned in the last moments of season four to assist Daniel and save Miyagi-Do.
The team has also announced that there will be more episodes beyond season five, which could lead to even more Cobra Kai stories in the future.
What additional Cobra Kai season five spoilers are out there?
However, Hawk actor Jacob Bertrand did told Entertainment Weekly that Season 5 will have a lot of “unlikely team-ups” in the Valley in addition to more fighting (could Kreese and Johnny reconcile?). As Miguel and the Miyagi-Do sensei become closer, we may expect tensions between Johnny and Daniel to rise.
“There are quite a few storylines that start spinning really swiftly and furiously as we enter next season,” showrunner Josh Heald later noted.
