Cobra Kai season 5 release date speculation:
— Jon Hurwitz (@jonhurwitz) December 19, 2021
Netflix has yet to announce a release date for the fifth season of Cobra Kai. That said, cocreator Jon Hurwitz said on December 19 that season 5 filming had already wrapped up, so we know it’s occurring. According to reports: Season 5 of Cobra Kai is expected to launch on Netflix sometime in late December 2022 (The Cobra Kai season 5 release date is likely to be December 31, 2022) or early January 2023, based on the previous two seasons’ premiere dates. Keep an eye out for a release date announcement from Netflix in the coming weeks.
Cobra Kai Season 5 cast:
Despite the fact that the season 5 cast hasn’t been formally announced, it’s a guarantee that some characters will return. For starters, Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence are guaranteed to return, which indicates that Ralph Macchio and William Zabka will be returning as well. Courtney Henggeler and Vanessa Rubio, who played Amanda LaRusso and Carmen Diaz, will almost certainly return.
Then a comeback of the main antagonist is almost a certainty. Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) and John Kreese (Martin Kove) are expected to return in season 5 (after a possible prison time, of course – more on that in a bit).
During the last minutes of season 4, it was revealed that Yuji Okumoto, who originally appeared in The Karate Kid 2 in season 3, will resume his role as Chozen in season 5.
It’s expected that the younger cast will include Xolo Mariduea as Miguel Diaz, Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso, Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene, Jacob Bertrand as Hawk, Gianni DeCenzo as… Demetri Alexopoulos, Peyton List as Tory Nichols, Selah Austria as Piper, Khalil Everage as Chris and Aedin Mincks as Mitch. Owen Morgan will play Bert and Nathaniel Oh will play Nate.
The character of Anthony LaRusso will likely be played again by Griffin Santopietro, who played a larger part in season 4, as will newcomers Dallas Young as Kenny Payne and Oona O’Brien as Devon.

Cobra Kai season 5 spoilers?
Season 5 of Breaking Goodwill see a lot of “unlikely team-ups” in the Valley, according to Hawk’s character Jacob Bertrand, who spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming season. As Miguel and the Miyagi-Do sensei become closer, we may expect tensions between Johnny and Daniel to rise.
Although the two of them have buried their hatchets in some way and are working together it is only natural. Jon revealed this to TV Line in an interview. While Johnny’s long-time opponent Daniel is making an impression on Miguel—whom Johnny considers to be a surrogate son in certain ways—Johnny worries that Daniel may be the new role model Miguel is looking to instead of him.
There will be “a lot of storylines that start spinning very rapidly and very furiously as we enter next season,” showrunner Josh Heald said later.

Will Cobra Kai season 5 be the final season?
This isn’t even close! During an interview with ScreenRant in early December 2021, Cobra Kai co-creator Josh Heald stated that Season 5 was “absolutely not the end” and that they had already begun planning for the season after that (assuming Netflix continues to renew the show).
Here’s the full quote:
“We have more beyond Season 5. We are not writing to the end of the series in Season 5 right now. We can’t believe we’ve filmed two seasons of the show this year. In our minds, it’s crazy to believe how far ahead of the story we are than what the audience has seen so far. Season 5 is another enormous season with a lot of new flavours and a lot of things that you haven’t seen before yet on the show. And it’s not the end.”
