Almost as fast as a Miyagi-Do move, cobra kai It won’t take a year to release a new season. After a tremendous fourth installment at the end of December 2021, the series of Netflix It is already preparing its return for this September, in which it will be its fifth season since the platform acquired the rights to the original series of YouTube Network.
If in the third season we saw something as unusual as that Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) and Daniel Larusso (Ralph Macchio) join forces to combat a greater threat like John Kreese (Martin Kove) and his renewed Cobra Kai, in the fourth Kreese ended up being displaced in turn for allying himself with an unpredictable karateka, the old acquaintance Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith). But we knew that if Terry Silver was involved, it was a matter of time before his right hand man appeared, mike barnes.
And it is that among the first images of the new season, the one that attracts the most attention is undoubtedly that of the actor Sean Canaan, who has changed quite a bit since we last saw him but seems more than ready to fight. Mike Barnes was the great villain of karate kid 3, in which Terry Silver and Kreese recruited him to defeat Daniel Larusso and reestablish Cobra Kai. Barnes was a very aggressive young man, a high school bully but with amazing skills for karate, enough to put an expert like Daniel San in more than one problem. We will have to see how Larusso reacts so many years later when he meets his old nightmare.
In addition to the return of Barnes, the new images published by Netflix also confirm the reappearance of regular characters whose end had been left up in the air, especially that of Miguel (Xolo Maridueña), whom we saw leaving his home for Mexico to look for his biological father. It seems that Miguel will return to the Valley and that he will not abandon it either Tori (Peyton List), brand new champion of the last edition and who is debating whether to continue on the path of evil or reunite with his old friends. Judging by the images, she will continue to be united with Cobra Kai, and will also find comfort in Devon (Oona O’Brien)an old student Eagle Fang of Johnny.
New alliances, old enemies and possible betrayals loom in the fifth season of cobra kaiin which the only sure thing is that it will reach the streaming platform on next september 9. Meanwhile, you can already see its trailer and its first images.
