Cobra Kai Season 5: Release Date, Guest Stars, and More – Everything to Know
Cobra Kai, which debuted in 2018, expanded the Karate Kid franchise through the eyes of a down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), who sought forgiveness by reopening the iconic Cobra Kai dojo — and therefore reigniting his feud with now successful car salesman Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio).
“It was like witnessing an old buddy come back to life,” Zabka said of returning to the part of Johnny after so many years in a September 2021 interview with Discussing Film. “It was a fantastic feeling… It was fantastic because it allowed me to delve deeply into the character’s humanity.
And, you know, I played this very exterior warrior with an attitude in The Karate Kid, and now we’re going into the soul of who the character was. So it’s incredibly rewarding and enjoyable to do that.”
What Is the Plot of ‘Cobra Kai’ Season 5?
After the All Valley Tournament in Season 4, Silver will try to take over the martial arts world with his “No Mercy” approach by growing the Cobra Kai empire.
Johnny has put karate on hold so he can fix the problems he’s caused with Miguel and Johnny. Daniel will ask an old friend for help: Chozen, who used to fight against him.
Is There a Trailer for ‘Cobra Kai’ Season 5?
Yes! Along with the announcement that season 5 would start in May 2022, a teaser was also released. In August 2022, Netflix released a full-length trailer, which you can watch above.

Who Will Return for ‘Cobra Kai’ Season 5?
Zabka and Macchio will be back, and so will series regulars Xolo Maridueo, Tanner Buchanan, Mary Mouser, Jacob Bertrand, and Peyton List. Yuki Okumoto, who played Daniel’s main rival in The Karate Kid Part II, Chosen Toguchi, will also play a big part, and Sean Kanan, who played The Karate Kid Part III’s main bad guy, Mike Barnes, will show up.
Alicia Hannah-Kim has also joined the cast. She will play Kim Da-Eun, a strong South Korean sensei who is important to Terry Silver’s (Thomas Ian Griffith) plans to speed up the growth of Cobra Kai’s dojos.
Cobra Kai season 4 ending explained
Cobra Kai is back for a new season, and this one is without a doubt the best one yet. Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio), Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), Miguel Diaz (Xolo Mariduea), Samantha LaRusso (Mary Mouser), Robby Keene (Tanner Buchanan), and Tory Nichols (Peyton List) all return, and a new bad guy named Terry Silver is introduced (Thomas Ian Griffith).
In the season 3 finale, Johnny and Daniel work together to try to stop John Kreese (Martin Kove) and Cobra Kai. However, Cobra Kai season 4 shows them that it’s not as easy as they might have thought. Of course, their long history makes it impossible for them to see things the same way.
Spoilers ahead for Cobra Kai season 4.
In season 4 of Cobra Kai, who wins the All Valley?
This season, one of the most important parts of the story is how the dojos are getting ready for the All Valley competition. In the second-to-last episode of Cobra Kai season 4, the tournament starts, and feelings are running very high. The bad news is that Cobra Kai wins, and everyone else is very upset.
But after the All Valley, Tory finds out that Terry seems to have cheated by paying Cobra Kai to win the tournament. “No one thinks anything,” he is heard to say. This will definitely come up again in season 5 of Cobra Kai.
Then, in the finale, Robby and Johnny get back together. Robby tells Johnny about his regrets, and the two of them find something they have in common. We hope that this is the start of a new relationship between the father and son and that the fifth season will show them getting closer.
