Cobra Kai Season 6 Release Date – When Is It Coming To Netflix?

Cobra Kai

Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, played by Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reprised their roles from the hit 1984 movie ‘The Karate Kid‘ for the YouTube series Cobra Kai in 2018.

Set 34 years after the events of the original film, the first season of Cobra Kai was released on YouTube Red and it went on to become an unexpected hit, with a second season following in 2019.

After filming wrapped on season three, YouTube announced it would cease production of all original programming on the platform.


Netflix saw an opportunity to acquire a popular show and in June 2020 they signed a deal to produce and stream the third instalment of the franchise. Since then the show has grown a huge loyal fan base on the platform.

Seasons 1 through to season 5 of Cobra Kai have made it one of the most-watched programs on Netflix after the series moved to the streaming service in August 2020.

But now we're all waiting for Cobra Kai season 6 – so when when can we expect to see it on Netflix?

When Is Cobra Kai Season 6 Coming Out?

Netflix dropped the latest season of Cobra Kai (Season 5) on September 9th, 2022. It proved to be another mega hit, with more than 274.72m hours being watched globally according to the Netflix top 10s.

So with the fans watching in their millions, it was no surprise that Netflix announced a sixth season would be made. The bad news however, is that it will also be the LAST.

I know, it's a travesty but all good things must come to an end, and for Cobra Kai, that is six seasons.

The good news is that executive producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg confirmed in an open letter to fans that they should “strap in for the BIGGEST SEASON OF COBRA KAI YET.”

They always wanted to tell the full story of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence, and that is exactly what they have been able to do.

Netflix gave us a sneak peak as the actors returned for the script reading back in April 2023 and things were looking good for a 2023 release.

And then it all ground to a halt. Production stopped on May 2nd 2023 due to the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike.

It doesn't look like it has resumed, especially as the strike is still on going. So with no filming, there's definitely no exact release date for Cobra Kai season 6.

If things get back on track, we will get the final season in 2024. Though an exact date is anybody's guess right now!

Cobra Kai Season 6 Official Announcement

Cobra Kai Five Season Recap

First Season

Cobra Kai brings back Johnny Lawrence, a former karate student, who decides to reopen the Cobra Kai dojo. He wants to teach kids how to defend themselves and gain confidence.

Meanwhile, Daniel LaRusso, his old karate rival, is successful but finds himself at odds with Johnny once again.

The season focuses on their old rivalry, the impact on their kids, and the contrasting teaching methods of their dojos.

Johnny’s estranged son, Robby, starts learning karate from Daniel, while Johnny mentors Miguel, a neighbour kid.

The season ends with a big karate tournament where Miguel wins, but he fights dirty, reflecting Cobra Kai’s aggressive teachings.

Cobra Kai Second Season Round Up

The rivalry between the dojos escalates, causing more tension and fights among the students.

Johnny tries to instill more discipline and moral values in his students, but it's challenging with Cobra Kai’s aggressive reputation.

Daniel opens his own dojo, Miyagi-Do, teaching the more peaceful and defensive karate style he learned from Mr. Miyagi.

The season highlights the struggles of the kids as they are caught in the middle of Johnny and Daniel’s feud.

It ends with a massive school brawl, resulting in serious injuries for some students, especially Miguel, who ends up in the hospital.

Third Season of Cobra Kai

After the school brawl, the characters deal with the consequences. Miguel is in the hospital, and everyone is reeling from the violence.

Johnny is full of guilt and tries to make amends. Daniel and Johnny start realising that their rivalry is negatively affecting the kids, and they begin to find common ground.

There are also flashbacks to John Kreese’s past (the original Cobra Kai sensei) showing why he is the way he is.

The season ends with Johnny and Daniel deciding to work together to take down Kreese and his toxic influence.

Season 4

With Johnny and Daniel now working together, they prepare their students for the upcoming All Valley Karate Tournament, agreeing that if they lose, they’ll stop teaching karate.

They face challenges in merging their teaching styles and handling the kids’ rivalries. Kreese seeks to strengthen Cobra Kai and even brings back Terry Silver, an old friend and former villain, to help.

The season ends with the tournament, where Cobra Kai wins due to some manipulations from Terry Silver. Johnny and Daniel are left to deal with their promise to stop teaching.

Cobra Kai Season 5 Recap

While it hasn't been that long since the ending of season five, we felt it only right to give you a round up of the goings on and where we left things.

At least you'll be up to date when Cobra Kai season 6 finally airs!

Terry Silver begins a calculated expansion of the Cobra Kai empire, launching new dojos across the San Fernando Valley.

Meanwhile, Johnny and his estranged son, Robby, travel to Mexico in search of Miguel, who is on a quest to find his biological father.

Miguel finds his father, Hector, but learns the hard way about Hector's dangerous past, leading to a timely rescue and reconciliation with Johnny.

Daniel LaRusso, having partnered with Cobra Kai, decides to shut down Miyagi-Do and start investigating Silver. With Chozen, they form a plan to expose Silver's maniacal nature to the Valley.

In a shocking twist, Silver retaliates against Daniel's investigation by burning down Mike Barnes' furniture store.

The stakes escalate further when it is revealed that Silver aims to enroll Cobra Kai students in the Sekai Taikai, the most prestigious karate tournament in the world.

A test run of the tournament pits Cobra Kai against Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang, with the young fighters showcasing their skills.

Meanwhile, Daniel, Johnny, and Chozen continue their investigation, with Kreese revealing Silver's grand plan during a prison visit.

The season finale sees a chaotic inter-dojo battle as students from Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang break into Cobra Kai to expose Silver's crimes.

In a moment of intense confrontation, Silver challenges Daniel to a fight, but his maniacal nature has been fully exposed.

The stage is set for a future showdown, but for now, Silver's villainy has been laid bare for all to see.
