“Cobra Kai” season 5 ended with a flourish with Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) finally brought down. However, most know that John Kreese (Martin Kove) managed to escape prison, a plot that appeared to prepare viewers for the things to come.

As of this writing, “Cobra Kai” season 6 has yet to be officially renewed. Given that the series has been widely successful, there is no doubt that most anticipate this as happening. The only problem is when.

Unfortunately, seeing a “Cobra Kai” season 6 may take time. According to show co-creator Jon Hurwitz, it is likely that the next installment will be delayed since he and other show creators (Josh Heald and Hayden Schlossberg) are busy with other projects, Deadline reported.

“We’re still working all that out with Sony and Netflix, and we don’t have an official Season 6 to announce yet. What we can say is that we’re constantly thinking about these characters. We are working on Obliterated right now for Sony and Netflix. We’re in our second month of production on that, and I think it’s going to blow people’s minds. But we’re hopeful that there’s going to be more Cobra Kai on the horizon. There may be a little bit more of a wait potentially, just because we are in the midst of working on that other show, but it won’t be far behind, assuming everything goes as we’re expecting,” Hurwitz said.

Given this scenario, the only thing certain is that it would be crazy to think that “Cobra Kai” would be canceled.

Should it be renewed, “Cobra Kai” season 6 would likely come out by October or November 2023.

However, there are other factors aside from the delay. There is the “Karate Kid” reboot movie that factor in. Hence, there is a possibility that “Cobra Kai” season 6 could come out no earlier than 2024.
