Is Cobra Kai Season 5 The Last One?

Cobra Kai season 5 is set to be the show’s most exciting yet, but it’s still unclear whether it will be Cobra Kai‘s final season. The Karate Kid sequel series has seen incredible success since its move to Netflix from YouTube Premium in 2020, leading to season renewals occurring well before a new season premieres. But with the stakes being higher than ever, it could mark the beginning of the end for the beloved show.

Cobra Kai season 4 saw the infamous Cobra Kai dojo winning the All-Valley Karate Tournament for the second year in a row, officially putting Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang Karate out of business. As Terry Silver opens more dojos all over the San Fernando Valley, Daniel and Chozen will team up against Cobra Kai, but it won’t be an easy feat. Silver will also be working with new senseis that had the same training he once did, and the return of Mike Barnes could be a crucial ally for Cobra Kai. The series has seen many team-ups and rivalries throughout each episode, and the stakes continue to get higher and higher with no signs of slowing down.


With how long the show has been on the air for now, it only makes that the creators of Cobra Kai would find a way to wrap up the story in a realistic timeframe so it doesn’t drag on for too long. Co-creator Jon Hurwitz has stated that while an exact number of how many more seasons is unknown, “we always viewed it as at least six was sort of in our heads“. Ralph Macchio also recently confirmed that they filmed scenes for a potential season 6, indicating a renewal is around the corner. These wild teases for Cobra Kai season 5 suggest there will be much more to come and that Terry Silver could maybe come out unscathed and cause more damage than ever.

How Many Cobra Kai Seasons Will There Be?

Cobra Kai Johnny Daniel Terry Silver

While there were at least six seasons planned out from Cobra Kai‘s inception, it’s likely that more could come after. There are still major characters from the Miyagi-verse that have not returned such as Dutch, Jessica Andrews, and The Next Karate Kid‘s Julie Pierce. With Julie being trained by Mr. Miyagi like Daniel, her entering the fold could help put the nail in Cobra Kai’s coffin. Mike Barnes will have a significant role in the upcoming season, but depending on how his arc turns out, more could be seen of him after. Because the series has relied so much on John Kreese’s storyline and his friendship with Terry Silver has turned sour, Kreese is still Cobra Kai season 5’s biggest mystery. Eventually, his character arc and many of the show’s other storylines will run its course.

The writers/creators will have to find a very compelling way to end Cobra Kai. While it’s currently unknown if the series ending will end the story of The Karate Kid saga, there are spinoffs that could come into play. Maybe a Miyagi origin project or a series focusing on another dojo would be an interesting way to keep the franchise alive even after Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence’s stories are over. Whatever direction the show takes, it does seem that Cobra Kai season 5 may not be the end.
