We’re about to enter the dojo for one last time.
Netflix has announced that Cobra Kai has been renewed for a sixth season, but the news was bittersweet as this will also be the last instalment of the Karate Kid sequel series.
The streaming service released a video announcing the show’s final season over the weekend, also teasing that it will be the “biggest” and “baddest” one yet.
Alongside the video, creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg wrote a letter to fans saying: “Reacquainting the world with the Karate Kid universe has been our humble honour.
“It has enabled us to play sensei, expanding the original storylines and birthing a new generation of underdogs.
“We’ve never once taken this opportunity for granted. Our day one goal with Cobra Kai has always been to end it on our terms, leaving the Valley in the time and place we’ve always imagined.
“While this may be a bittersweet day for the fandom, the Miyagiverse has never been stronger… We hope to be telling more Karate Kid stories with you down the line because as we all know: Cobra Kai never dies.”
No release date for the final season has been revealed at the time of writing, but we expect to see it on our screens by the end of the year.
