Cobra Kai Season 6 might have been delayed by Netflix, at least, if the creators are to be believed. So, what’s happening? Let’s get into the weeds of this story. The show’s creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg all spoke to Deadline, and during their interview with the media outlet, they opened up on when the sixth season could be released on the streaming platform. It sounds as though we might have to wait for some time.
Here’s what Hurwitz had to say about the sixth season of Cobra Kai:
We’re still working all that out with Sony and Netflix, and we don’t have an official Season 6 to announce yet. What we can say is that we’re constantly thinking about these characters. We are working on Obliterated right now for Sony and Netflix. We’re in our second month of production on that, and I think it’s going to blow people’s minds. But we’re hopeful that there’s going to be more Cobra Kai on the horizon. There may be a little bit more of a wait potentially, just because we are in the midst of working on that other show, but it won’t be far behind, assuming everything goes as we’re expecting.
Cobra Kai Season 6 release date might have been revealed
Hurwitz then continued:
And as for the Ferris Bueller project, we are so excited about that project which we’re producing. We have a great writer, Bill Posley, who’s worked on Cobra Kai with us, who we love and he has an awesome take on it. It’s exciting to dip into the John Hughes universe, but see a side of that world that we haven’t seen with these characters, Sam and Victor, who were the valets in the original Ferris Bueller movie. The three of us are suckers for side characters in general and love to see what’s going on in their worlds, so that’s going to be a fun one when we get to it. But that will not impact any Cobra Kai going forward. It’s really about working on Obliterated, getting through our production there, and then figuring out the path for more Cobra Kai.
Will there be more seasons of the show after season 6?
Cobra Kai Season 5 didn’t really end with a traditional cliffhanger. This means that fans of the show should be able to wait a little bit longer for the sixth season of the series. There were a number of loose ends were tied up by the finale. Season 5 really focused on healing, and it ended up bringing together some pairs that may have surprised fans. This is one of the main reasons why people love the show so much. It gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling to see old foes learn to respect different points of view who eventually become friends and family.
Schlossberg eluded on this point during the interview. Here’s what he had to say about the show’s key strength:
Rivalry is a huge aspect of this show and there’s been a lot of rivalry with the younger characters, from Miguel [Xolo Maridueña] and Robby [Tanner Buchanan] to Sam [Mary Mouser] and Tory [Peyton List], and it’s rooted in the original rivalry of Johnny [William Zabka] and Daniel [Ralph Macchio]. We liked the idea that not every generation, even though we repeat a lot of things, that we get to learn from the previous generation. The hope has been that Sam and Tory and Miguel and Robby can end their high school days on a better note than Johnny and Daniel did.
