“You’re playing with fire, Danny Boy” “And I am gasoline”. Seems like Cobra Kai Season 5 is all set to bring about a classic Karate Kid rivalry.
Everyone loves The Karate Kid, and correct us if we are wrong but that franchise made all of us want to be a martial art fighter. With the increasing influence and fan following starting from the 80s till date, the original rivalry between Daniel and Johnny (now in their 50s) was brought back in the martial arts drama series, Cobra Kai. The first season of the story was set 34 years after the duo’s 1984 All-Valley Karate Tournament.
With four seasons already on air and the fifth one confirmed, fans have been speculating on all the details one can find on the upcoming installment of the martial arts comedy-drama. Here’s everything we know about Cobra Kai Season 5 and whether it will be hitting Netflix this June or not:
Will Cobra Kai Season 5 be on Netflix in June 2022?

Cobra Kai Season 5 Trailer

Cobra Kai Season 5 Plot
By the end of Season 4, Daniel and Chozen found themselves as each other’s ally in order to bring Silver and his unfaithful tactics down. When Johnny and Daniel couldn’t take him down despite certain advantages and Silver still won the All-Valley Karate Tournament championship with his sinister ways, it became very clear that the alliance needs something more. Hence, Chozen joins the team. We might be seeing the three sensei with very diverse opinions on martial art and their ways of working together to save the young gullible minds from getting manipulated.

We expect the following cast members and their characters to be seen in Cobra Kai Season 5:
- Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso

Will there be a sixth season of Cobra Kai?
Though there have been no actual announcements regarding any upcoming seasons, the creator of the show, Josh Heald told Collider, “We still have an endgame plan. We’re still writing beyond Season 5.” The showrunners also added, “We’ve never said from the beginning how many seasons there would be. I think we always viewed it as at least six was sort of in our heads, but we’re still figuring out exactly what the length for that landing is for all the reasons that Josh mentioned.” So we can expect a few more seasons revolving around the said martial arts drama.
