The upcoming sixth season of “Cobra Kai” is set to mark the end of the series, but the showrunners have hinted at the potential for more projects in what is unofficially dubbed the ‘Miyagi-verse’.

Filming on the sixth season, postponed by the actor’s strike, will begin in very early 2024 suggesting we could see episodes as early as late next year on Netflix.

In a new interview with Collider, showrunners Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald have teased the future and say they’re already considering what comes next.

Heald says the final season will deliberately leave some threads hanging, not entirely wrapping things up, as the show itself was built on the idea that “The Karate Kid” wasn’t finished. He says:

“We will never give actual closure when it comes to anything. We love working in the ‘Cobra Kai’ universe, so there’s always potential to revisit that world. We’re certainly thinking about other ideas within the Miyagi-verse, and it’s only a matter of time before we figure out exactly which direction we’re gonna head… We’re really excited about Cobra Kai Season 6. We’re gonna go out with a bang, and it’s gonna be an amazing experience for fans of the franchise.”

Sony is also working on a new Karate Kid movie which has seen its release delayed till December 2024. That film does not feature the involvement of the “Cobra Kai” team and specifics of it are unknown.
