The fifth season of “Cobra Kai” is Netflix’s most reviewed series since “Heartstopper”

Netflix needed a win and Cobra Kai was happy to provide it, arriving this weekend with its most-reviewed season so far, and indeed, it’s the best-reviewed season in. whatever show on Netflix since the release of Heartstopper last April.

Cobra Kai season 5 current not only has a 100% perfect score from critics, but also a whopping 96% from fans, one of the highest I’ve ever seen for a Netflix original. This is even better than the show’s past seasons, which have been broken down as follows:

  • Cobra Kai Season 1 – 100% critics, 95% audiences
  • Cobra Kai Season 2 – 90% critics, 92% audience
  • Cobra Kai Season 3 – 90% critics, 91% audience
  • Cobra Kai Season 4 – 95% critics, 91% audience
  • Cobra Kai Season 5 – 100% critics, 96% audiences

Heartstopper, by contrast, has a 100% critical score and 97% audience rating, which I believe holds the all-time record for a Netflix original between the two groups. Arcane season 1 is tied to Cobra Kai season 5 with its 100% / 96% split.

Cobra Kai has been a remarkably consistent annual win for Netflix since buying the show from YouTube. And I would agree with the scores that say this is the best season since the original. Season 5 brings a compelling new villain in the form of Terry Silver, a true strategist, rather than Creese’s brute force. And it’s somewhat refreshing that this season isn’t about yet another All-Valley tournament, but rather about the aftermath of the last one, and looking towards a wider stage in Season 6, of course.

The show upped the ante with real and dangerous adult-sized villains this time as well as a Sensei, with fighters flying in from Japan that Johnny, Daniel and Chozen have to deal with. The show also spends a lot of time mending up old rivalries, how many years have we seen Tory and Sam, Miguel and Robbie go for their throats? Ultimately, you have to evolve those relationships, and that’s what season 5 does. It’s just an incredibly solid season from start to finish. I’m not sure I’m willing to say I like it more than Arcane, but it’s very good.

Cobra Kai’s sixth season hasn’t been announced yet, but it’s obviously happening. It is rumored that some scenes from next season have already been shot. The show is cheap, popular and well-loved and may be the absolute best thing on Netflix’s roster beyond Stranger Things these days. It is currently number 1 on the top 10 list and I expect it to stay there for quite a while. And yes, go back and watch Heartstopper if you missed it. Less karate, but just as good.
