Cobra Kai season 6 release date speculation, plot, cast, and news

The action packed Netflix series is due a return, so here's everything we know about the Cobra Kai season 6 release date, cast, and more.

What is the Cobra Kai season 6 release date? The battle for the soul of the Valley raged on throughout season 5 of the show as Daniel, Johnny, and the kids all reeled from the aftermath of Cobra Kai winning the All-Valley.

Cobra Kai season 5’s ending promised plenty of more loose ends and adventures to tie up for the gang down at Miyagi Do/Eagle Fang/Miyagi Fang (?), but what’s the next stage of this epic karate turf war in the TV series? Will good or evil prevail? Let’s take a look at everything we know about the upcoming season of the hit Netflix drama series.

Cobra Kai season 6 release date speculation

We expect that Cobra Kai season 6 will arrive in late 2024, since production had to halt due to the Hollywood strikes in 2023.

However, this release date hasn’t been confirmed just yet. We know that they’d managed to shoot only one episode of the Netflix series before the strikes brought production to a halt, so there’s still a lot of work to be done.

Assuming production resumes in the early months of 2024, there’s still time for the series to wrap and get on screens before the end of next year. (We’ve got our fingers crossed for it, anyway!)

Will Cobra Kai season 6 be the last season?

It was announced in January 2023 that Cobra Kai season 6 would be the final installment.

“The upcoming Season Six will mark the conclusion of Cobra Kai,” wrote the producers on an official statement. “While this may be a bittersweet day for the fandom, the Miyagiverse has never been stronger.”

It has been described as “the final showdown” and “the epic conclusion to the decades-long karate saga.” That said, we know there’s a Karate Kid movie in the works for 2024, starring Ralph Macchio and Jackie Chan, so we think the season 6 ending could lay the groundwork for the new movie!

Who’s in the Cobra Kai season 6 cast?

The cast of Cobra Kai season 6 will be led by Ralph Macchio and William Zabka.

I mean, we couldn’t have the series without the two, could we? We’ll also see the return of Xolo Maridueña, fresh off his DCU turn in Blue Beetle, as Miguel Diaz.

“I’m forever grateful for it, and I know it’s damn not gonna be the last time that we meet,” Maridueña said of the show’s end [via Collider]. “I’m sure five years down the line we’ll do, like, ‘Cobra Kai Reunion’ or something.”

  • Martin Kove as John Kreese
  • Yuji Don Okumoto as Chozen Toguchi
  • Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz

What will happen in Cobra Kai season 6?

Cobra Kai season 6 will follow Johnny and Daniel leading their students after overthrowing Silver.

As the final season, we can expect plenty of emotional climaxes and the culmination of the year-long story and character arcs.

The plot will also take heavily from the ending of the fifth season. This ended with Cobra Kai renouncing their dodgy dojo and tossing their gis at Silver. Miyagi Do/Eagle Fang/Miyagi Fang still seems to be going strong as they take their karate to the Sekai Taikai international championships.

Johnny (William Zabka) and Daniel (Ralph Macchio) definitely grew closer as friends without competing dojos, but could the stress of the Sekai Taikai reignite their rivalry?

There’s also the fact that while Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) is behind bars, Cobra Kai’s other founder, John Kresse (Martin Kove), has escaped from jail after faking his own death with the help of some red jello.

Silver might be defeated, but knowing Kreese, he will definitely have revenge in mind when he (inevitably) returns to the Valley, especially with Daniel and Johnny tricking him into sharing secrets about Silver. With no Cobra Kai dojo, season 6 would look very different — but it certainly wouldn’t run short on drama.

It’s possible that season 6 could act as a set-up for a Cobra Kai spin-off series, or even lay the groundwork for the upcoming Karate Kid movie heading our way in 2024. As the producers themselves said, the “Miyagiverse has never been stronger.”
