Roundhouse has made its way onto the checklists of millions of subscribers around the world, the binge has come as strong and fast as the fifth season of Cobra Kai has officially been and gone on Netflix. With many people expecting an equally exciting sixth season as Cobra KaiWe are currently waiting for Netflix to decide the future of the series, but we expect a decision to be made soon.
Cobra Kai is an American martial arts drama created by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg. Previously a YouTube original series, Cobra Kai officially moved to Netflix after two seasons and has since grown even more in popularity. The series is a continuation of The Karate Kid films and takes place 34 years after the events of the original Karate Kid, which rekindles the rivalry of Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso.
Has Cobra Kai renewed for the sixth season?
Netflix Official Renewal Status: Pending (Last Updated: 09/13/2022)
At the time of writing, Netflix has yet to renew Cobra Kai for a sixth season. However, we are already convinced that the series will return in the near future.
We are still waiting for Netflix viewing figures, but thanks to the current top ten lists worldwide as of September 13, 2022 Cobra Kai is ranked as the number one series in dozens of countries around the world.
Cobra Kai continues to be one of Netflix’s most popular series and the renewal is expected to be confirmed shortly.
Questions for Cobra Kai season 6
What is the future of Cobra Kai?
With Terry Silver’s treacherous antics revealed to his students, they all turned their backs on their sensei, who was later arrested for his crimes.
The future of Cobra Kai now it has been seriously questioned, and so has the place of the dojo in the Sekai Taikai.
Since Kim Da-Eun has a 50% stake in Cobra Kai, he may be able to overcome this hurdle and utilize the students of his dojos using the Cobra Kai name and brand.
Want Mike Barnes to take control of Cobra Kai?
Mike revealed to Daniel and Chozen that he was promised a 50% stake in Cobra Kai by Terry Silver many years ago. While he’s not sure he can find the document or the lawyer to prove it, there is a chance that Daniel’s former enemy may continue to redeem himself and Cobra Kai if he takes control of the dojos.
However, this could also lead to a potential Cobra Kai civil war if Mike Barnes leads Terry’s alumni who may have to fight Kim Da-Eun’s students.
If Kreese is involved with Kim Da-Eun, we could easily see him attempting to manipulate the situation by convincing Kim Da-Eun to stake his 50% against Barnes’s 50% in a winning bet on Sekai Takai.
What is Kreese doing?
With Kreese escaping from prison, the only person he can now turn to is Kim Da-Eun, the granddaughter of his former master.
Silver and Kim Da-Eun were already a formidable couple, but Kreese now has nothing to lose, making him more dangerous than ever.
What is the future of Miyago-Do and Eagle Fang?
With Silver defeated, Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang should be able to make their triumphant return and reopen their dojos and begin training students for Sekai Takai.
It remains to be seen who represents the respective dojos, but we would expect Miguel to represent Eagle Fang and Hawk to represent Miyagi-Do. Depending on the situation with Cobra Kai, Robby could represent the dojo over Kenny, however, should Robby rejoin Miyagi-Do or Eagle Fang, he may have to compete against Hawk or Miguel.
Samantha will represent Miyagi Do and Devon Lee could once again represent Eagle Fang. As for Tory, her place in the tournament could be in doubt if the organizers of the Sekai Takai choose to ban her for not declaring herself clean before her about Silver’s cheating. This can also lead to Tory’s further redemption if she is allowed to compete.
When will the baby be born?
Johnny is about to have a baby with Carmen, and it is still unclear when the baby should be born, which could affect Johnny’s presence at Sekai Takai.
Will Julie Pierce make an appearance?
Almost all of the main characters from the original Karate Kid movies are back to reprise their roles in Cobra Kai. The only omission so far is Julie Pierce, who was previously played by Academy Award-winning actress Hilary Swank.
It would be extremely fun to see Swank return to reprise her role as Julie, as the character may return to help train Miyagi Do students for Sekai Takai preparation.
If there is a further conflict with Kim Da-Eun, it would be incredibly fun to see Julie Pierce face off against the Korean master of Tang Soo Do.
Who will return for the sixth season of Cobra Kai?
Cobra Kai already has an extremely large cast list, but we would expect the majority of the cast to reprise their roles from season five for season six, including;
- Ralph Macchio in the role of Daniel La Russo
- William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence
- Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso
- Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz
- Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene
- Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso
- Jacob Bertrand in the role of Falco
- Gianni De Cenzo in the role of Demetri
- Martin Kove in the role of John Kreese
- Vanessa Rubio in the role of Carmen Diaz
- Peyton List as Tory Nichols
- Griffin Santopietro as Anthony LaRusso
- Dallas Dupree Young as Kenny Payne
- Yuji Okumoto in the role of Chozen
- Oona O’Brien as Devon
- Alicia Hannah-Kim as Kim Da-Eun
We would expect many of the minor cast members to return for the sixth season as well.
After Terry Silver’s arrest, we can’t confirm with certainty that Thomas Ian Griffith will return to reprise his role.
When we can expect to see Cobra Kai season 6 on Netflix?
In the relatively short span of twenty months, we saw the release of three seasons of Cobra Kai on Netflix, starting with season 3 in January 2021 and most recently in season five in September 2022.
While subscribers have already gotten used to seeing the new seasons of Cobra Kai on Netflix on a semi-regular basis, the wait for a sixth season may be the longest ever.
First of all, Netflix has yet to renew Cobra Kai For seasons six and two, the showrunners of the series have been working on Obliterated, their brand new project for Netflix, which is not expected to finish until November 2022.
This means once Cobra Kai is renewed, we don’t expect filming to start in 2023. That also means we may not see the return of Cobra Kai until the end of 2023 or a more realistic release date in 2024.
The sixth season will be the last of Cobra Kai?
Until the renewal is confirmed we cannot say with certainty that season 6’s Cobra Kai it will be the last of the series.
At least we can’t see Cobra Kai moving beyond the seventh season as many of the characters’ story arcs are starting to come to an end.
We have witnessed the redemption of many of the former Cobra Kai students such as Miguel, Robby, Tory and Hawk, not to mention that Johnny Lawrence put aside his differences with Daniel LaRusso and took a notable step forward in assuming his role as father seriously.
