Cobra Kai season 6 is coming to Netflix this month and with that, the beginning of the end is here! The story is being told in three separate batches, with the second part coming in November and the third in 2025.

No matter the release pattern, what matters the most at present is recognizing that we’re in the endgame now and everything is going to be moving rather fast. It has to!

Given the series’ success, you can argue that technically there could have been a Cobra Kai season 7 or even more. So why end things now? Well, a lot of it was story-driven, which is the indication we’d gotten for a while. Speaking to Screen Rant, executive producer Hayden Schlossberg explained further:

The point was in season 5 to have the kids kind of come together so that they can kind of join as one giant team in this Sekai Tekai against the next level fighters that they’re about to face. There were still some hanging chads left at the end of season 5, namely Kreese, so we’ll see what happens with all that. But yeah, we knew in season 5 that we were in endgame times by doing that, and it wasn’t until after we shot season 5 that we kind of worked out exactly, “Okay, this is going to be the end afterwards.”

The thing that is rather great about the show having this advance plan to say goodbye is that it does open up the possibility for every character to have a fitting end. We do think that this is a positive and at times inspirational story, so the final chapter could reflect that. Of course, it’s also still a comedy, so there will be moments to laugh along the way as well.
