There is a notable drop, but the two series had a similar trajectory. Season 5 kicked off along with an 11% drop down from season 4.
The two seasons then unveil the exact decline week-by-week:
After using such an external demand, we can also watch that the show is still very popular, we’re watching the diminishing returns over time.
Google Trends has been suggested that the interest in season 5 just blew that of season 4, and there are both while Netflix just picking up seasons 1-2 and season 3 in 2020.
On looking at the latest top 10 data given by FlixPatrol, we can able to see where the series is performing at its best. The US and Latin America are where the series has scooped up the most points.
Cobra Kai (season 6): Expectations
We can also collaborate on our predictions and expectations for the new season. We have also asked two Cobra Kai superfans for their predictions on what to expect from the sixth season, and you can able to read the theories here.
Cobra Kai (season 6): Future Scope
Along with the Terry Silver’s cheating antics getting exposed to his students with all of them getting turned, they are back on their sensei. He was subsequently arrested for the crimes. The future of Cobra Kai has now been throes into a serious note, and so too become the dojo’s place in the Sekai Taikai.
Just like Kim Da-Eun has such a 50% stake in Cobra Kai, she can overcome this hurdle and use the students from her own dojos in using the Cobra Kai name with branding.
Mike Barnes on taking Over Cobra Kai
Mike just exposed to Daniel and Chozen that he had promised a 50% stake in Cobra Kai by Terry Silver many years before. When he is not sure whether he could find the document or the former form of Daniel can able to keep on to redeem himself and Cobra Kai he was set to take over the dojos.
This thing can lead to a potential Cobra Kai civil battle if Mike Barnes becomes the lead of Terry’s former students who may have to battle with the students of Kim Da-Eun.
While Kreese getting involved with Kim Da-Eun, we might easily watch him manipulate the condition by getting Kim Da-Wun to stake her 50% just against Barnes’ 50% in a winner-taking bet at the Sekai Takai.
What is Kreese for?
Along with Kreese making his escape from prison, the only person he can able to turn in is Kim Da-Eun, the granddaughter of his former master.
Silver and Kim Da-Eun were already a formidable pairing, but Kreese now has nothing to lose, making him more dangerous than ever.
What is the future of Miyago-Do and Eagle Fang?
After the defeat of Silver, Miyagi-Do and Eagle Fang should be able to make their triumphant return, re-open their dojos, and begin training the students for the Sekai Takai represented their respective dojos remain to be seen, but we can expect Miguel to represent Eagle Fang, and Hawk to represent Miyagi-Do. Depending on the situation with Cobra Kai, Robby could represent the dojo over Kenny, however, if Robby were to rejoin Miyagi-Do or Eagle Fang he may have to compete against either Hawk or Miguel.
Samantha will represent Miyagi Do, and Devon Lee could again represent Eagle Fang. As for Tory, her place in the tournament could be in doubt if the Sekai Takai organizers ban her for not coming clean earlier about Silver’s cheating. This may also lead to Tory’s further redemption if she is allowed to compete.
The births of a Baby
Johnny is having a baby with Carmen, and it’s not yet clear when the baby is due, which could impact Johnny’s attendance at the Sekai Takai.
Did Julie Pierce make an appearance?
Nearly all of the major characters from the original Karate Kid movies have returned to reprise their roles in Cobra Kai. The only omission so far is Julie Pierce, previously played by academy award-winning actress Hilary Swank.
It would be extremely fun to see Swank return to reprise her role as Julie, as the character could return to help train the Miyagi Do students to prepare the Sekai Takai.
If there is a further conflict with Kim Da-Eun, it would be incredibly fun to see Julie Pierce go one-on-one with the Korean master of Tang Soo Do.
Cobra Kai (Season 6): Cast
Cobra Kai already has an extremely extensive cast list, but we would expect the majority of the cast to reprise their roles from the fifth season for the sixth season, containing Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso, William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence, Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso, Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz, Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene, Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso, Jacob Bertrand as Hawk, Gianni DeCenzo as Demetri, Martin Kove as John KreeseVanessa Rubio as Carmen Diaz, Peyton List as Tory Nichols, Griffin Santopietro as Anthony LaRusso, Dallas Dupree Young as Kenny Payne, Yuji Okumoto as Chozen, Oona O’Brien as Devon, Alicia Hannah-Kim as Kim Da-Eun
We wish to return many of the minor cast members in the sixth season too.
Cobra Kai (Season 6): Netflix Release Date
The last twenty months are really very exciting got the fans of Cobra Kai, we’ve seen the release of three seasons of Cobra Kai on Netflix, starting with season 3 in January 2021, and, most recently, the fifth season in September 2022.
When the subscribers have already become used to seeing new seasons of Cobra Kai on Netflix semi-regularly, the wait for a sixth season could be the longest.
Without a swift renewal, production has yet to start and likely won’t do so until 2023. Meaning that a late 2023/2024 release date is most realistic.
Here is the trailer:
