In an interview on the podcast Happy Sad Confused, Ralph Macchio talked about Cobra Kai and the factors that could be affecting its future. In order to increase viewing, the actor who plays Daniel LaRusso on the show made it obvious that the spinoff hasn’t been formally renewed yet. He also urged viewers to keep watching.

“Yeah, we, truthfully, we have not been picked up for season six yet, which we think should happen very soon. But keep watching, you know, keep those numbers going.”

The newly brewing couples are an aspect of what the show wants to focus on as well as the feuds that have been developing, many of which have changed into friendships. It could be a hint towards the show not having any more groundwork left to complete in terms of stories. The cliffhanger that came to be with the latest episode of the fifth season, making the fans be further excited for what’s to come next.

Cobra Kai‘s future looks much bright with the hinting of an international tournament that could happen in future seasons. Actors themselves have talked about wanting to compete globally as the world of the titular dojo grows beyond that of disputes and feuds. Namely, the Sekai Taikai, writers too, have expressed their eagerness to explore this area of the franchise. The spinoff has been dealing with multiple different storylines, all being highly successful, and they want to see where this newer wider range of fights could reach.

This, however, does seem to be contradictory to the reason that actors have been getting busier with various other projects, as well as the stories somewhat fading as a whole. It can also be pointed out that many characters have not received as much depth, along with multiple side characters and side stories that could lead to perhaps a few more seasons of the show.
