Cobra Kai Season 5 (2022): Plot of the Fifth Season of Cobra Kai | When Can We Expect Trailer?

Cobra Kai Season 5 (2022): Cobra Kai is an American martial arts comedy-drama television series that is a sequel to Robert Mark Kamen’s original The Karate Kid films.

Release Date

While Cobra Kai season 5 ended in December 2021, as confirmed by Johnny Lawrence actor William Zabka on Instagram (opens in new tab), the new episode has yet to be announced. Seasons 4 and 3 were released on Netflix on December 31, 2021, and January 1, 2021, respectively.

We should anticipate seeing the series somewhere in late December 2022 to (very) early January 2023 if the series follows its typical release schedule. However, now that the season is over, it’s possible that it’ll arrive sooner rather than later. Let’s hope the next round of karate competitions comes sooner rather than later.

When Can We Expect a Cobra Kai Season 5 Trailer?

Teasers for Cobra Kai season 4 were published in the weeks leading up to the premiere of the new episodes on Netflix, followed by a full trailer just under a month before the premiere. The first teaser, which indicated Terry Silver’s return, aired in May 2021, a full seven months before season 4.

Based on that pattern, we should expect some teasers well ahead of the new series premiere, so hopefully in the coming months. It’ll be a while before we see a decent trailer, and it’ll most likely be closer to the start of the new season.

The Plot of the Fifth Season of Cobra Kai

Season 4 shifted Cobra Kai’s focus, and season 5 will presumably address the fallout. The combined strength of Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang (or Miyagi-Fang) could not beat Cobra Kai in the All Valley, who won both the ladies’ division and the overall award. Terry Silver has pledged to establish additional dojos around the Valley, making defeating the Cobra Kais next season even more difficult.

And it’ll probably be a fight. Despite his promise to cease teaching karate if Miyagi-Do or Eagle Fang don’t win, Daniel LaRusso is determined to defeat Cobra Kai. He’s enlisted Chozen’s help again. The last time they met, Chozen taught Daniel a hidden (and highly effective) Miyagi-Do technique, so we may anticipate more from the erstwhile nemesis in the next season. The coalition will provide a tremendous challenge to Silver and the Cobra Kais.

“One of our favorite characters in the series,” said Jon Hurwitz, who worked on the game. When Yuji [Okumoto] came back in season 3, his karate and comic scenes with Ralph [Macchio] were some of our favorite parts. He brings a lot of energy to the table.

It’s not just that he has to deal with his own personal problems, either. So far, Silver has made threats against his former best student, Johnny Lawrence. This will be interesting to watch.

Johnny wants to find Miguel Diaz. This means that both of them will end up in Mexico. Miguel is looking for his father there. Miyagi-Do, Eagle Fang, and Cobra Kai students don’t know where their lives will go.

If Daniel does not close his dojo, Miyagi-Do students can expect to keep moving forward. Some of the students at Cobra Kai may leave at the end of the fifth season.


A dialogue indicated the tournament was rigged in favor of Cobra Kai, and Tory Nichols, the All-Valley winner, maybe contemplating leaving the dojo, particularly since she and Amanda LaRusso became closer over the season.

Because Johnny will be in Mexico for part of the season, Eagle Fang will likely stay at Miyagi-Do. It’s uncertain whether any of the youngsters will stick to their word and quit studying karate.

There may be cameos from the broader Karate Kid world. “A lot of karate,” Hurwitz told Deadline. “There will be a lot of crazy, maybe some renowned names will turn up, maybe not.”
