What’s the Cobra Kai series all about?
Cobra Kai is an American martial arts comedy-drama television series that is actually a sequel to the original The Karate Kid films by Robert Mark Kamen. The series was created by Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg, for Sony Pictures Television. The series is basically set 34 years later and continues the original Karate Kid saga.
The series is set up after the 1984 All Valley Tournament, which is where the Karate Kid movie ended, and shows the conflict between Johny Lawerence and Daniel LaRusso, who were two Karate Kids trained in different styles. The two characters in the film, one being the protagonists and one being the antagonists continued having their personal disputes and for which Karate becomes the main cause. Johny thereby working as a part-time handyman who had fallen far from a wealthy life thereby suffering depression and alcoholism, whereas Daniel lives a wealthy life and is also the owner of a successful car dealership chain. The story thus revolves around both of them being in competitive relationships because both of them are unable to move away from their past.
Cobra Kai Season 5: Release date and Where to Watch?
Cobra Kai Season 5 according to official sources is going to arrive on screens on September 9, 2022, and fans can therefore enjoy season 5 of the series only on Netflix.
The series so far up to season 4 has received greater viewership on both platforms YouTube and Netflix as well and has therefore received greater positive responses and reviews from the fans and the critics as well. The first season of the series was also nominated for “Outstanding Comedy Series” at the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards.
At first, the series was arriving on YouTube Red with the first season arriving on the same platform in 2018 with the second season in 2019, but after when the production of season three was completed YouTube basically decided to stop producing the series, due to which Netflix in June 2020 decided to acquire the series and thereby released the third season in January 2021 and then the fourth season of the series was followed up which released on December 31, 2021. And since then the preparation for Cobra Kai Season 5 has been going which is finally dropping on September 9, 2022.
Cobra Kai Season 5: Expected Plot
A lot of things basically happened in Season 4, due to which we can expect Cobra Kai Season 5 to pick up where the previous season had left off. Viewers will get to see Terry Silver take over Cobra Kai. Terry Silver is free to fully take over Cobra Kai and also implement his vision for the dojo. We can also expect an increase in the new students as a result of several Cobra Kai dojos that are anticipated to open up around the valley and this could also result in the conflict between Cobra Kai and the students of competing dojos and according to the director of the series, Terry’s intention will be fully realized in Season 5.
Apart from that, we can also expect to see Miyagi fight it out with Cobra Kai once again, Daniel is basically still on his intention to bring down Cobra Kai, and this time he has enlisted Chozen for help. The last time they met, Chozen actually passed on a secret Miyagi-Do technique to Daniel, therefore we can expect Daniel to plant more tricks in the new season in order to bring down Cobra Kai.
Season 5 will also see Anthony learning Karate in order to develop as a person. Through all of this, we are very much sure that season 5 of the series is going to be a banger on screens after all the exciting and adventurous plot that is being followed in Cobra Kai Season 5.
