What Is The Plot Of Cobra Kai season 5?

Season 5 of Cobra Kai will focus on the combined forces of Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang (or Miyagi-Fang). They weren’t enough to beat Cobra Kai at the All Valley. He won the girls’ side of the tournament and gained the overall prize.

Daniel LaRusso is still working towards bringing down Cobra Kai. He has enlisted Chozen for help.

The co-creator of Cobra Kai Season 5  Jon Hurwitz told the media:

“When Yuji [Okumoto] returned in season 3, the scenes that he had with Ralph [Macchio] were some of our favorites in that season, both from a karate standpoint, but also a comedy standpoint. We love that dynamic and just what he brings. And beyond that he’s got demons, he has things that he’s working through himself in life. So he’s a fully realized character that has work to be done and what better time for him to come to the United States and join the fight in the Valley than when Terry Silver is on top?

Because, as we all know, Terry Silver is a very formidable opponent… If Cobra Kai is going to have Terry Silver on that side, to bring in Chozen who has a history of fighting to the death and fearlessness, and seemingly is more skilled and is more of a karate threat than Daniel, even, at this point, it felt like it was great for season 5 to have Chozen and Silver as opposing forces.”

John Kreese will be out of the picture – for now. For the students of Miyagi-Do, Eagle Fang, and Cobra Kai, the future is less clear. Daniel has no plans of shutting his dojo, so the Miyagi-Do kids will still be honing their karate skills. Cobra Kai will be expanding, but some students might not be seen in season 5.

Season 5 will be action-packed. “We’ve just shot season 5. And we ended up in a situation where the finale is, I don’t want to say bigger, but there’s a lot of action going on in our season five finale,” co-creator Hayden Schlossberg told the media.

Is Cobra Kai season 5 the final season?

There’s no confirmed season 6 but the creators Josh Heald, Hayden Schlossberg, and Jon Hurwitz that will be planning more seasons for the show. They told the media:

“It’s changed at times, but it also hasn’t,” Heald said. “We still have an endgame plan. We’re still writing beyond season 5. But it’s been fun to bring in those new characters and storylines and let them lead the way sometimes.”

Said Hurwitz: “We’ve never said from the beginning how many seasons there would be. I think we always viewed it as at least six was sort of in our heads, but we’re still figuring out exactly what the length for that landing is for all the reasons that Josh mentioned.”

Schlossberg shared the potential of the sixth installment. “We have an end in mind,” he said. “How many seasons it takes to get there, we don’t know. We’re enjoying making it so much.” He added: “If it gets tiring to us, we’ll stop before that; we have a few more seasons already planned out.”
