Cobra Kai It hasn’t been officially renewed for a sixth season, but given the show’s reception and popularity on Netflix, chances are the story isn’t over yet. Either way, after an explosive season five, fans rushed to Reddit to discuss their theories and hopes for what might happen.
When it comes to what fans want to see, this involves more cameos the Karate Kid The world, character recovery arcs, happy ending and decisions, and coverage of the big Sakei Taikai tournament.
10/10 Julia Pierce
The only thing fans want to see in the new season is Julia Pierce’s character making a cameo of sorts. Played by Hilary Swank, she is one of the few main characters of the Karate Kid Not yet shown in Cobra Kai. Starring in The Karate Kid Part III, she trained with Mr. Miyagi and remains one of the first, if not the first, students under his tutelage.
redditor basement_door He claims to have read an article suggesting that Pierce will appear in some capacity, although it is unclear if it will be the main role or just a cameo. “She is indeed the only female student in Miyagi, and she is a top player in the Miyagiverse.”
9/10 redemption keller
The only character who has appeared in each season and has not yet experienced some kind of redemption is Kyler. It was Miguel’s first bully and thug who pushed Eli to learn karate and turn into the worst version of himself like Hook.
redditor More 27 He thinks Kyler’s redemption should be in the cards. “That’s literally all they can do with the kids now.” Although Kyler was also studying karate, he remained consistent with his Cobra Kai and “strike first” mentality and did not show any personal growth. Kyler has only marginally participated in some of the best fights in Cobra Kai Until now.
8/10 Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan
redditor Netflix He takes this a step further and says they wish Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan, who starred in the 2010 remake of the Karate Kid, To appear in the next season as a student and a sensei, she also enters the tournament.
The idea is that they appear at the Sakai Taikai World Championships as a dojo competitor from China. They suggest “they can extend this championship saga into season 7, realistically,” adding that “many competition dojos” could also be added to “fill in.” redditor lurker334007 He also agrees to Jackie Chan’s cameo wish.
7/10 new villain
With Terry potentially in prison and Chris presumed to be on the run (although his name has been cleared, he may not have to), fans want to see a new primary antagonist on the show. Both Kyler and Kenny may be bullies, but an adult villain is necessary to keep the story going.
Some think it might be Kim Da-Eun, the new least-liked character in Season 5 Cobra Kai. After the fight, she may have just returned to Japan with her team of Sense. If so, Redditor weridzero He wants to see “either Chris return or Miguel’s father become a main villain,” adding that Hector’s story “finished suspiciously quickly.” It is possible that he will be brought back into the fold with a more interesting scheme.
6/10 Scene change
With the World Championships on the horizon, fans want to see the show shift scenes from California to another. Assuming the Sakai Taikai Championship is a big focus of Season 6, the Redditor Markjay 6 He wants to see the season “take place somewhere abroad”.
They also want to see “a new team of international bad guys, maybe in Korea”. What aspects do all students of Cobra Kai land and who completes it, such as if someone else takes possession of the Cobra Kai dojo. Either way, with Miyagi-do/Miyagi-fang also qualifying, the plot can follow Daniel and Johnny’s journey into the tournament.
5/10 Amanda helps the conservatives
With Tory and Sam finally getting better, and Tory finally getting the help she needs, fans really love the story between her and Amanda. Fans want to see their relationship grow. redditor u/LennyDeG “Helping Amanda out with her situation would be a nice touch,” she says.
This also includes possible revelations about Tori’s mother and the exact illness she suffers from, as well as more of Tori’s salvation story. Fans want to see Tory finally have a more positive arc and be part of some of the best relationships Cobra Kai.
4/10 Chris makes peace with Johnny
With their friction going on for more than 30 years, fans finally want to see a resolution between Johnny and Chris. Looking at the breakthroughs Chris achieved during prison treatment, even if it was part of the manipulation to obtain the wizard’s main card, it is clear that he has a deep admiration and love for Johnny.
redditor u/LennyDeG He adds that Chris “needs to make peace with Johnny, who always thought he was a son.” Thus, they want to see him return before the end of the season to do exactly that, even if he appears briefly and then continues to run as a fugitive.
3/10 No season at all
Interestingly, even fans of the show believe that season five wrapped the story well and that season six is not required. Cobra Kai has yet to be officially renewed for a sixth season and it looks like some fans would be fine if it wasn’t.
redditor MarkT-D_W He says they feel “the way things escalated in the last two episodes to a very happy ending for just about everyone, I think there’s a good chance that season five.” redditor Claim_Intelligent He agrees, saying that the end of season five was “like the last chapter of a great book.” There were already many returnees karate Kid characters in Cobra Kaiso there is not much left to surprise and delight fans of the originals.
2/10 Robbie wins the championship
Aptly named Redditor Ruby King Indicates that Robbie has not yet won the championship. While Miguel, Hawk, and Tory won, Robby continued to hold second place
Given his lineage as Johnny’s son as well as the character’s journey, they believe he deserves a win of some sort in Season 6. “It would be cruel to make him come second for the third time,” they wrote. “Ruby is the only one of the trio of Miguel, Robbie and Hook who hasn’t won yet.”
1/10 Changing Cobra Kai
One of the key moments in Season 5 was when Daniel and Johnny, after entering the tournament, were unable to agree on an official name for their dojo. They were told that they would need to confirm this soon, before the official registration. Miyagi-fang doesn’t sit well, and some fans believe that with all that has happened, Johnny can reclaim the name Cobra Kai and he and Daniel can use the opportunity to reinvent the dojo and give it a positive legacy.
redditor St / Fatima Mama He thinks this will be a great moment for the entire circuit, especially if season six ends up being the last episode of the show. They wrote, “The show began with Johnny trying to reboot Cobra Kai and make it better, and maybe even ends with him. He’s just not alone and has the missing pieces: friendship with Daniel, goodwill, and actual experience in being a competent expert.”
