Thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, Johnny Lawrence's life has taken a rocky turn as he tries to forget a past that constantly haunts him. He seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo. But the LaRusso-Lawrence rivalry of yesteryear is reignited when their lives become intertwined with the next generation of "karate kids".
Netflix has confirmed that it has ordered a fifth season of the teenage karate soap opera, whose fourth year premieres in December.
The continuation of the 1980s classic Karate Kid franchise has been a year-to-year production for Sony Pictures Television, but it has always been renewed for a new season before the latest one’s debut. A statement from Netflix said production on season 5 will begin this fall in Atlanta.
