Netflix announces that Cobra Kai will end with season 6

After four films and six seasons, The Karate Kid the saga finally ends.

That’s the word from Netflix today when they announced it Cobra Kaithe sequel to the original The Karate Kid movie, is returning for a sixth season on the streamer — but that season will also be the end of the series.

As part of the news, series creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg sent a letter to fans, which reads in part:

Our day one goal with Cobra Kai has always been to finish it on our terms and leave the valley at the time and place we’ve always envisioned. So it is with immense pride and gratitude that we are able to announce this achievement. The upcoming season six will mark the end of Cobra Kai. While this may be a bittersweet day for fandom, the Miyagiverse has never been stronger.

The news also came with a video teaser for the sixth season:

Heald, Hurwitz and Schlossberg’s letter also said “we hope to tell more The Karate Kid stories with you down the line.” But they didn’t specify what that means. Sony recently announced a new one The Karate Kid film that the same trio of creators then revealed they were not connected to and did not work on. They said at to time that they would “love” to make one The Karate Kid or Cobra Kai movie someday, so maybe that’s what this message is teasing.

Here is the final season’s official synopsis:

Cobra Kai never dies! After five bad seasons, Cobra Kai Season 6 will be the final showdown. The epic conclusion to the decades-long karate saga is coming to Netflix soon. Stream Cobra Kai’s first five seasons now.
