We know already that production is wrapped on Cobra Kai season 5, and we’re just waiting for a premiere date at this point.
With that in mind, why not go ahead and discuss how the Karate Kid follow-up is already making its case for a season 6? Since moving to Netflix for season 3 it has become an international hit, and the proof is in the pudding when you look at the latest viewership chart released by the streaming service.
New Cobra Kai video! – Check out all of our thoughts on the season 4 finale below, with an obvious warning for spoilers in advance here. Once you do just that, SUBSCRIBE to Matt & Jess and then also stay at the channel for other fantastic TV coverage.
If you look below courtesy of star William Zabka, you can see that Cobra Kai season 4 has been watched so far for more than 120 million (!) hours. When you remember that episodes of this show are shorter than a Bridgerton or a Squid Game, that is even more impressive. It’s also in the top 10 programs for the week in a whopping 83 countries, including being #1 in places like the United States, Mexico, Canada, Brazil, and Argentina. This is the sort of show that Netflix covets, since the streaming service operates on a global level in a way few others out there do. These are the rare occasions where the streamer wants to stay on board a show for a long time. (Remember, the vast majority of Netflix series are lucky to get a season 4, let alone a season 5.)
Odds are, we’ll hear something about a season 6 renewal before the end of the year; it doesn’t seem like there are any plans for season 5 to be the last one.
How long do you think Cobra Kai will last on Netflix with the latest ratings in mind?
