The series saw the return of the rivals, William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence and Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso. It twisted the narrative by making the villain of the film an underdog and allowed William Zabka to show the sympathetic side of the character that he always wanted to.

Season 5 comes with big promises

With the teaser trailer dropping only a few hours ago, we could finally see what to expect from the series in season 5. The trailer shows Johnny becoming a uber driver and Daniel having to close his dojo, indicating that both the leads are at their lowest from the very beginning of the season.

At the same time, Terry Silver has only gone on to expand the dojo, while planting his philosophy in his students. Commenting on the danger that Terry Silver’s dojo presents, Cobra Kai co-creator Hayden Schlossberg stated to

“Cobra Kai is more popular than it’s ever been, with Terry Silver relishing it and in full force and Daniel supposedly having to shut down Miyagi Do. That when you think about it from Daniel’s perspective, what does he have to come back from this?”

New characters in the mix

While some of the characters were introduced in the last season, we will finally see many of them blossom. One of the most hyped returns includes Chozen Toguchi played by Yuji Okumoto who will prominently feature in the next season, becoming Daniel’s critical ally.
