Season 5 of Cobra Kai will be available on Netflix worldwide in September 2022, following season 4’s release in December 2021. Here’s an updated preview of everything we know so far about Cobra Kai’s fifth season, including what to anticipate, who will star, and more.
Cobra Kai has already become one of Netflix’s most successful continuations, akin to the likes of Lucifer and Money Heist. The sitcom already had a strong and passionate fanbase from its time as a YouTube Red/Original series, but its popularity surged when it moved to Netflix.
Production Schedule for Cobra Kai Season 5
According to Josh Heald, the writer’s room will meet in July 2021 to begin work on the fifth season. Filming began on September 20th, 2021, and ended on December 19th, 2021.
Cobra Kai co-creators Jon Hurwitz and Josh Heald confirmed the news of the fifth season’s completion on Twitter with the phrase “Five. Fin.”
The majority of the show was once again being filmed in Atlanta, Georgia. This season, though, we’ll be travelling because Miguel will be seeking for his father in Mexico. Jon Hurwitz has recently verified that the season 5 episodes were shot in Puerto Rico.
Both Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have announced that they will helm episodes this season. Post-production then began, and in early March 2022, we received a Tweet from Zach Robinson (the show’s long-time composer) stating that they were well into preparing the score for the fifth season.
Cobra Kai Season 5: What to Expect
Terry Silver is free to completely take over Cobra Kai and disseminate his vision for the dojo now that Kreese has been blamed for Sting Ray’s assault.
With numerous new Cobra Kai dojos slated to open across the Valley, expect a huge increase in new students, which could lead to hostility between Cobra Kai and competitor dojo students. Hurwitz has claimed that we will see Silver’s ideas “completely realised” in Season 5, and that he would be growing the Cobra Kai franchise.
Daniel LaRusso will continue instructing kids at his Miyagi-Do dojo despite his inability to accept Cobra Kai’s dishonourable approach to winning the All Valley Tournament.
Daniel has enlisted the help of Chozen Toguchi, an old rival and new friend who is the sensei of Miyagi-Do karate in Okinawa, to help him fight Cobra Kai.
After Anthony’s constant tormenting of newcomer Kenny, he attempted to make peace with the Cobra Kai student during the All Valley competition, only for his tormented to declare his intention to become the bully when they graduate high school.
Daniel was ready to start teaching Anthony karate, and Anthony may have no choice but to study Karate in order to defend himself against Kenny.
To abandon Cobra Kai, Robby and Tory?
Despite switching sides, Robby has attempted to create a medium ground between the Miyagi-Do and Cobra Kai beliefs. His heartbreaking revelation that his mentoring of Kenny has resulted in the formation of a bully, one who intends to attack his ex-younger girlfriend’s brother, has prompted him to seek his father’s help.
Although Johnny will strongly encourage Robby to leave Cobra Kai, Robby may choose to stay with the dojo in order to atone for his faults in coaching Kenny.
Tory, the All Valley’s women’s champion, overheard Terry paying off the referee, tarnishing her victory utterly. She, like Robby, will come to a fork in the road that may lead her to abandon Cobra Kai.
Who are the Cobra Kai season 5 cast members?
Despite the fact that the fifth season has already wrapped filming, we have yet to learn of any new cast members, particularly the casting of Miguel’s unknown father.
We’ve received signs that certain returning characters are on the way for the past few seasons’ finales. No hints were revealed for Season 5, however given Terry Silver’s comeback, several suspected Terry’s old friends, including Mike Barnes and Sean Kanan’s roles from Karate Kid 3. Time will tell whether or not we see them.
According to IMDb, this season’s Kim Da-Eun will be played by Alicia Hannah-Kim. The series will also feature new stunt performers, including Steven John Brown, Zack Duhame, Jorge Longoria, and Tony Sre.
When will Cobra Kai Season 5 be available on Netflix?
Season 5 of Cobra Kai will be available on Netflix on September 9th, 2022. The date was revealed at a live event at Netflix’s Netflix is a Joke festival in Los Angeles. On May 5th, 2022, a special performance for Cobra Kai was held at the Microsoft Theater.
The majority of the cast was present and engaged in fun and games with the audience, as well as teasing some things about season 5, showcasing an alternate ending for season 4, and it was an overall entertaining night.
