Cobra Kai is not ending its training anytime soon. Netflix has renewed the series for a fifth season ahead of its fourth season premiere which is set for December.
The Cobra Kai series is a continuation of the popular 1980s Karate Kid movie franchise with Ralph Macchio returning as Daniel LaRusso. The comedy-drama series has seen Daniel battling his old foe, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), but by the end of the third season they had joined forces to go up against a bigger foe – John Kreese (Martin Kove).
Netflix revealed more about Cobra Kai in a press release.
“Netflix has renewed Cobra Kai, the series continuation of the iconic The Karate Kid film franchise, for a fifth season with production set to start in Atlanta this fall.
