When Netflix acquired the broadcast and production rights for “Cobra Kai”, only five seasons were planned for the derivative of “Karate Kid”.
However, showrunner Josh Heald has previously revealed that he has plans for something more than that.
And, during an interview with Collider, the filmmaker confirmed that the attraction’s 6th season is already in the works.
“There are characters and storylines that we envisioned from the start. In some cases, we would have said, “Okay, this lasts a season,” and that storyline ended up playing out in an episode or two. And then there’s the opposite of that, when a specific storyline can span more than one season. That’s why we always look at our original plan with an open mind, because there are so many new directions, characters, interactions… ”
“When you deepen certain relationships, you naturally develop more stories. We still have a plan for the end of the series, but we’re already writing material beyond Season 5. It was fun bringing these new ones. characters and seeing them walk their own roads.
Remember that season 4 is now available on Netflix.
In the new cycle, Johnny and Daniel will have to put their differences aside and join forces to prevent sensei John Kreese from generating a new kinky rivalry between a group of teenagers. On the verge of entering a new karate tournament, the two will discover that the stake is much more than a simple trophy.
Besides Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, the cast includes Courtney Henggeler, Xolo Maridueña, Tanner Buchanan, Mary Mouser and Jacob Bertrand.
COBRA KAI takes place 30 years after the 1984 All Valley tournament, and the inevitable conflict between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) continues.
