Netflix announces the end of its action and nostalgia-filled hit series, Cobra Kai. The Netflix series will be ending with its sixth and final season. Series creator Jon Hurwitz, shared the news on Twitter, while also thanking the fans for all of the support they’ve shown the series.
The Karate Kid spin-off series handles the balance between the old and the new characters perfectly. Series creators Hurwitz, Josh Heald, and Hayden Schlossberg said this on the topic “reacquainting the world with ‘The Karate Kid’ universe has been our humble honor. Making Cobra Kai has allowed us to join the same hallowed dojo once inhabited by the great Robert Mark Kamen, John Avildsen, Jerry Weintraub, and all the amazing original cast members. It has also 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.”
Cobra Kai is set 30 years after the first Karate Kid film’s events and it still is mainly focused on the conflict between Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso played by William Zabka and Ralph Macchio but it also introduces new blood to the franchise who carry over their master’s Karate legacy.
Cobra Kai was originally made for YouTube’s streaming service YouTube Red on which it aired for two seasons after YouTube stopped making original content Netflix acquired the rights for the series in 2020 and aired its third season as a Netflix original which was an instant hit and got fifty million views in its first month alone.
