The fifth season of Cobra Kai plans to strike quickly and hard, and it will do so months before anyone thought it would. The tension in the next installment is reaching a snake-shaped head, judging by the action-packed teaser and rumors of even fiercer rivalries.
The stakes in All Valley have never been higher as seen in Cobra Kai’s first full season 5 trailer.
The preview, which debuted on Tuesday, contains more than two minutes of hints that show how much of a super-villain Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) has evolved since fans last saw him in the franchise in season 4.
With more disciples than ever before, the extremely wealthy Silver seeks to expand Cobra Kai Karate “a lot broader than simply the Valley,” and with more students available than ever before, Silver hires more of them to spread his terrible teachings. Silver still seems determined to end Daniel LaRusso’s life (Ralph Macchio).
Additionally, the Eagle Fang and Miyagi-Do dojos closing after Silver’s Cobra Kai won the All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament is depicted in the teaser, along with Daniel and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) once more at war with one another.
Johnny’s Eagle Fang minivan, which (unsurprisingly) “smells like beer,” seems to have turned him into a terrible ride-sharing driver.
The Cobra Kai First Look also provides a peek of John Kreese (Martin Kove), who is currently serving time for being falsely accused by Silver in season four in order to prevent him from thwarting his intentions to launch a karate franchise, from behind bars. Kreese draws attention in jail because he can effectively defend himself, as is obvious.
Season 5 will undoubtedly include a lot of karate, both in and outside of competition, with one of the most heated street fights taking place once more between Miguel Diaz (Xolo Mariduea) and Robby Keene (Tanner Buchanan).
In the end, Chozen Toguchi (Yuji Okumoto) from Karate Kid: Part II, Daniel, and Johnny will work together to take down Silver and his wicked enterprise.
Before the fifth season of Cobra Kai premieres on September 9, the prior four seasons are currently available to stream on Netflix.

Following the conclusion of the All Valley Tournament in Season 4, Silver will broaden the Cobra Kai empire in an effort to monopolize the martial arts scene using his “No Mercy” strategy.
