Read on to find out the latest updates on Cobra Kai Season 6.
A show based on a book is a common thing. But a show based on a YouTube original series? Sounds strange and unbelievable, right? Not for a Cobra Kai fan, though. Ever since Cobra Kai was released on Netflix, it has gained exponential fame and a fan base that remains unparalleled.
An extension of The Karate Kid movies, the temporal setting of the series takes place 34 years after the events of The Karate Kid, revolving around the rivalry between Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso. Its latest season, season five was released on Netflix in September 2022, and ever since, the fans of the series are waiting for the renewal and release of the sixth season.
Here’s everything we know so far about Cobra Kai Season 6.
Is Cobra Kai renewed for a sixth season?
At the time of writing, Cobra Kai has not been renewed for a sixth season. What’s on Netflix reasons out of the cause for this “excruciating” delay:
“The difference this time, we suspect, is that the showrunners have another project on the go (at Netflix) in the form of Obliterated. That series just recently wrapped up filming in November 2022, and once post-production/editing has concluded, they’ll be free again to move on to Cobra Kai.”
Not only that, but What’s on Netflix also presumes that the show might get a season 6 renewal; however, it “may be a final season order” since the data suggests that the show has peaked in popularity.
In a conversation with Deadline, Hayden Schlossberg hinted at the possibility of a sixth season, saying:
“We have an end in mind. How many seasons it takes to get there, we don’t know. We’re enjoying making it so much. If it gets tiring to us, we’ll stop before that; we have a few more seasons already planned out.”
In a Tweet, one of the showrunners, Jon Hurwitz expressed that they would prefer to do at least six seasons:

What can we expect in Cobra Kai Season 6?
Since Netflix has not provided any official plotline, we will stick to our previous assumption for this bit:
“Previous seasons of Cobra Kai left us wondering what would happen after Terry Silver’s cheating antics are out in the open, which led to his arrest. With this, the future of Cobra Kai has been put into the dark since Kim Da-Eun has a 50% stake, she might use students from her dojos under the name of Cobra Kai.
In addition to this, there is a possibility of a civil war looming in the Cobra Kai future that can be ignited by Mike Barnes if he leads Terry’s former students to combat the students of Kim Da-Eun.
Season 6 will also observe the rise in power of Kreese now that he has escaped from prison. The only person that he will expectedly turn to is Kim Da-Eun, the granddaughter of his former master.
On a different tangent, Johnny is having a baby with Carmen, and the due date has not been mentioned. This could affect Johnny’s attendance at the Sekai Takai.”
Who are the expected cast members of Cobra Kai Season 6?
A majority of the core cast members are expected to reprise their roles for the sixth season of Cobra Kai. This includes:
- Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso
- 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 as Hawk
- Gianni DeCenzo as Demetri
- Martin Kove as John Kreese
- Vanessa Rubio as Carmen Diaz
- Peyton List as Tory Nichols
- Griffin Santopietro as Anthony LaRusso
- Dallas Dupree Young as Kenny Payne
- Yuji Okumoto as Chozen

- Alicia Hannah-Kim as Kim Da-Eun
When can we expect Cobra Kai Season 6 to release on Netflix?
Beginning with season 3 in January 2021, Cobra Kai has released three seasons in a relatively short span of twelve months, ending with the fifth season in September 2022. Be that as it may, the wait for the sixth season seems interminable since it has not been renewed. Once it gets renewed, it will follow the long processes of production and post-production. That being said, we don’t expect the sixth season of Cobra Kai to release until late 2023/2024.
