‘Cobra Kai’ Returning for Sixth and Final Season

Netflix has renewed “Cobra Kai” for a sixth season, which will serve as final chapter of the “Karate Kid” sequel series.

Series producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg said the conclusion would be the “biggest season of ‘Cobra Kai’ yet.”

“Our day one goal with ‘Cobra Kai’ has always been to end it on our terms, leaving the Valley in the time and place we’ve always imagined. So it is with immense pride and thankfulness that we are able to announce that achievement,” the trio wrote in a letter to fans.

“Cobra Kai” takes place 30 years after the events of 1984’s Karate Kid and its sequels, continuing the rivalry between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) as their dojos battle for the soul of karate in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley.

“While this may be a bettersweet day for the fandom, the Miyagiverse has never been stronger. This fandom is the best on the planet and we hope to be telling more ‘Karate Kid’ stories with you down the line,” the show’s creators wrote. “Because as we all know, Cobra Kai Never Dies.”

The first five seasons of “Cobra Kai” are streaming now on Netflix. The first four are available on DVD as well. The series is produced by Sony Pictures Television.

Season Four of ‘Cobra Kai’ Due on DVD Sept. 13

Season four of “Cobra Kai” is headed to DVD Sept. 13 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

The series also streams on Netflix.

“Cobra Kai” takes place over 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament with the continuation of the inescapable conflict between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka). Season four finds the Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang dojos joining forces to take down Cobra Kai at the All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament — and whoever loses must hang up their gi. As Samantha and Miguel try to maintain the dojo alliance and Robby goes all in at Cobra Kai, the fate of the Valley has never been more precarious.

Bonus features include deleted scenes, a blooper reel, and the “Karate Dad” featurette.
