“Cobra Kai” will end after Season 6.
“Reacquainting the world with ‘The Karate Kid’ universe has been our humble honor. Making Cobra Kai
has allowed us to join the same hallowed dojo once inhabited by the great Robert Mark Kamen, John Avildsen, Jerry Weintraub, and all the amazing original cast members. It has also enabled us to play sensei, expanding the original storylines and birthing a new generation of underdogs. We’ve never once taken this opportunity for granted,” said creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg in a written statement.
“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 note continues. “The upcoming Season Six will mark the conclusion of Cobra Kai. While this may be a bittersweet 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. Because as we all know, Cobra Kai Never Dies.”
Starring Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, “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 and Johnny Lawrence.
The show’s fifth season had a more than solid performance, opening to a 100% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes with an astounding 107 million hours watched on the streamer.

Will Smith, James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett executive produce for Westbrook Entertainment along with Susan Ekins in association with Sony Pictures Television.
