Cobra Kai has been renewed for a sixth and final season by Netflix.
Per Deadline, the streamer has ordered a sixth season of The Karate Kid legacy sequel series, which is being described as “the biggest and baddest” season of all. Production is scheduled to begin in late spring.
Series creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg also released a statement on Twitter, describing the end of Cobra Kai as “bittersweet” while thanking fans for their support. You can read it in the below tweet.

Cobra Kai takes place more than 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, with the continuation of the inescapable conflict between Daniel and Johnny — but now their families also are involved. Had these two men grown up enough in the present day to make amends? Or even, dare fans dream, become friends?
William Zabka and Ralph Macchio reprise their roles from The Karate Kid film series as Johnny Lawrence and Danny LaRusso, respectively, in Cobra Kai. The Netflix original series also stars Xolo Maridueña, Courtney Henggeler, Tanner Buchanan, Mary Mouser, Jacob Bertrand, Peyton List, Vanessa Rubio, Dallas Dupree Young, Alicia Hannah-Kim, and Gianni DeCenzo.
No word yet on when Season 6 might air on Netflix. We’ll keep you posted.
