You’ve waited a full year to see the Cobra Kai crew face off against a new set of merciless enemies, and the moment of truth is almost here. Season 5 hits Netflix on September 9, but you can check out the first 9 minutes of the season right HERE.
One thing’s for sure: Cobra Kai will never be the same now that Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) has sunk his fangs into it. The Karate Kid Part III big bad has well and truly corrupted the once-noble dojo, and he’s not finished yet. Daniel (Ralph Macchio) will need all the help he can get to fight the growing menace of Cobra Kai as it spreads throughout the Valley — and that means calling on Karate Kid Part II frenemy Chozen (Yuji Okumoto).
Meanwhile, Johnny (William Zabka) and Robby (Tanner Buchanan) are heading on a father/son road trip to Mexico, which just so happens to be where Miguel (Xolo Maridueña) has gone to search for his birth father.
What else is in store for the rest of the Cobra Kai crew? “At Cobra Kai, we believe anyone can be a winner,” Silver intones over the season’s opening. “All you need is the right teacher.” That may be true, but just who ends up being the right teacher has yet to be decided.
