The time between Season 4 and Season 5 certainly surprised fans across the world, making it the shortest amount of downtime between new episodes on Netflix. However, we do know that the show’s creators are hard at work on crafting the next set of adventures.

Jon Hurwitz confirmed that “Season 6 has not yet been written” though the co-creator has “lots of kickass ideas already percolating.”

Speaking with US Weekly, series lead Ralph Macchio explained that “it hasn’t officially been picked up. I need to say that because that is the truth. We’re feeling pretty good that we’ll get to continue the show and let it evolve and land when it needs to.”

The Karate Kid star clarified “it’s gotta be entertaining and organic and I think there’s plenty of places to go every season. Whether you bring in Tamlyn Tomita as Kumiko or Elizabeth Shue in season 3.

You have Thomas Ian Griffith – what a great job he’s doing. Karate Kid 3 was never, ever my favorite of those three movies. Now it’s bearing such great fruit and storytelling and refined versions of characters.”

During a recent appearance on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Macchio reiterated that the show hasn’t been greenlit for Season 6… officially.

“Yeah, we, truthfully, we have not been picked up for Season 6 yet, which we think should happen very soon. But keep watching, you know, keep those numbers going,” he said.

Though Season 6 has yet to be written, we do know that Ralph Macchio and William Zabka will be returning as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence respectively. We also expect to see the return of regulars such as Xolo Maridueña, Tanner Buchanan, Mary Mouser and Jacob Bertrand.

Terry Silver, portrayed by Thomas Ian Griffith is likely to return too, as our heroes and villains gear up for the Sekai Taikai tournament.

The future of Peyton List remains uncertain, however, as the actress said to Variety: “We’re just taking it season by season, but we all look so drastically different each season. I have no idea. I don’t know what they’re gonna do.”

Cobra Kai Season 6 plot: What will it be about?

Plot details for Cobra Kai Season 6 are under wraps while the creators formulate the future of the show.

However, we do know that Season 5 has laid the foundations for the biggest tournament in Cobra Kai’s history. Yes, the Sekai Taikai is far bigger than the All Valley Karate Tournament. With Terry Silver eager to take the dojo’s brand up to a global scale, it will take every ounce of courage and every Miyagi-Do teaching to sweep Silver’s leg once and for all.

William Zabka and Ralph Macchio are both keen to make a return to the big screen too, with a trilogy of movies proposed for the future.
