Fans of “Karate Kid” benefit from the fact that the series “Cobra Kai”, which is based on the trilogy, has become the new home of Netflix. You can now stream 40 episodes here. Best of all: It’s not the end yet. It has long been confirmed that “Cobra Kai” Season 5 will come.

“Cobra Kai”: Season 5 is off
Even before the fourth season was released, proclaimed the series creators Jon Hurwitz and Josh Heald via Twitter that the filming for “Cobra Kai” season 5 has already been completed.
So there will definitely be another season. When exactly it will appear is not yet known. But we can imagine that it will be made available on Netflix in summer / autumn 2022.
How could it go on?
Be careful, from here on there are spoilers for “Cobra Kai” season 4. If you don’t want to be spoiled, then you better scroll down to the next heading.
In season four, the once rival dojos Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang Karate work together for the first time. You take on Cobra Kai. Villain Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith, known from “Karate Kid III”) supports them. The season ends with a surprise: John Kreese (Martin Kove) is undergoing a real change. He goes from a potential murderer to an almost warm-hearted man. Terry puts him in jail …
The fifth season “Cobra Kai” will certainly build on this. Terry will, in all likelihood, bring Cobra Kai under his control. Daniel will then certainly call this on the scene. In the last few minutes of season four, he speaks at the grave of Mr. Miyagi about destroying Cobra Kai forever.
