Our favorite series is back. Cobra Kai just released an amazing trailer announcing that season 6 is being filmed right now. Cobra Kai is welcoming the fans back to the dojo’s. The new trailer shows the cast celebrating that the show’s sixth and final season is officially back in production after Netflix announced plans to renew the show a year ago.
The news comes after show creator and writer Jon Hurwitz took to X to announce that writing on the season would stop until after the 2023 WGA strike ended, with him tweeting: “We hate to strike, but if we must, we strike hard. Pencils down in the Cobra Kai writers room. No writers on set. These aren’t fun times, but it’s unfortunately necessary. The moment a fair deal is in place, we’ll get back to kicking ass. In the meantime, sending strength and support to the negotiating committee. You got this.”

The writers strike officially ended on September 27 after a deal was struck between the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. The SAG-AFTRA strike also ended on November 9 following am agreement with the AMPTP. Since then many film and television productions have slowly been resuming and getting back to set, with many shows like “The Last of Us,” “Abbott Elementary” and Max’s “The Penguin” all now picking up where they’d left off pre-strike.
What we can expect:
- An exciting fight in season 6 of Cobra Kai, with a team-up that has never been seen before in the show.
- The creator of the show, Jon Hurwitz, promises that the upcoming fight will be crowd-pleasing and make viewers “go nuts”. Hurwitz himself was thrilled by the fight and said he couldn’t stop smiling while watching it.
“The upcoming Season Six will mark the conclusion of ‘Cobra Kai.’ While this may be a bittersweet day for the fandom, the Miyagiverse has never been stronger. This fandom is the BEST on the planet and we hope to be telling more ‘Karate Kid’ stories with you down the line. Because as we all know, Cobra Kai Never Dies,” Heald, Hurwitz and Schlossberg said prior in a joint statement.
Cobra Kai season 6 could see Johnny or Daniel LaRusso finally team up with Julie Pierce, who has not appeared since The Next Karate Kid. Creator Jon Hurtwitz has previously indicated that classic characters will be appearing in season 6, even if they have not been seen in the show before. Julie Pierce has been a long-awaited arrival, and it is about time that she finally earns her introduction to modern audiences.
