Netflix has announced that the Emmy-nominated Cobra Kai, the show that continues the legendary Karate Kid franchise for old and new fans alike, has already been renewed for a fifth season ahead of Season 4’s premiere this December. Production is reportedly slated to begin in Atlanta this fall.
Cobra Kai is set 30 years after the events of 1984’s All Valley Karate Tournament — a tradition that the upcoming fourth season is currently slated to return to when the students of the Cobra Kai dojo are officially able to compete. The stakes have seemingly never been higher than they are right now, and with this confirmation of a fifth season, it looks like Netflix is eager to continue the Cobra Kai story.

The series recently received four Emmy nominations for Season 3, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Stunt Performance, Outstanding Sound Editing for A Comedy or Drama Series (Half-Hour) And Animation, Outstanding Sound Mixing for A Comedy or Drama Series (Half-Hour) And Animation, and Outstanding Stunt Performance.
The first three seasons of Cobra Kai are currently available to stream on Netflix, with Season 4 set to premiere in December. No release date has yet been confirmed for Season 5, but it’s exciting to know that we’re not leaving the dojo any time soon.
