“Hopefully, we will continue what we’ve started in Season 5 on Cobra Kai… I think they’ve opened a pandora’s box with Kim Da-Eun.”

Hannah-Kim believes that the newly introduced darker tones to the story of the series would create more room for her character to be explored further as she states that the character’s antagonizing personality and goal of world domination to pursue her family’s legacy will continue on.

Cobra Kai’s Future Continues To Grow

Co-creator Josh Heald had previously stated how season 5 would not be the end of Cobra Kai. Having already filmed two seasons in one year, Heald states that the vision that has been set for the show is much more ahead than what the audience has seen in the first place.

“Season 5 is another enormous season with a lot of new flavors and a lot of things that you haven’t seen before yet on the show. And it’s not the end.”

Thar Cast of Cobra Kai

May 2018 saw the premiere of Cobra Kai not on Netflix, but on YouTube Premium. To have then been picked up by Netflix, a show set 34 years apart from the original Karate Kid. Now the Karate Kid feature film is set to hit theatres in 2024, being the series’ first big screen premiere since 2010. However the team of Cobra Kai remains uninvolved in this project, it is safe to say that the show in general would be seeing multiple season in the works.

The introduction of a character as sinister as Kim Da-Eun, the fans themselves seem ecstatic to see what more the show is yet to offer.


Cobra Kai’s season 5 premiered on 9th September 2022.
