To put an end to suspicions over whether Netflix’s Cobra Kai is linked to the next Karate Kid film, which is planned to be released in 2024, the series’ co-creator Jon Hurwitz said that he doesn’t “know anything about it” and that it is unrelated to the fan-favorite Netflix program. The fifth season of Cobra Kai aired on Netflix on September 9, 2022, to overwhelmingly good reviews from both fans and reviewers, with praise focusing on the plot’s entertainment value, great writing, and performances by the cast. Continue reading to hear more about Jon Hurwitz’s opinions on the upcoming Karate Kid film and other topics.

The co-creator of Cobra Kai explains that the series has nothing to do with the new Karate Kid.

Jon Hurwitz said in the tweet quoted above that he’d “love to do Karate Kid and Cobra Kai movies and hope to eventually.” He added that the previously announced Karate Kid film is “not from us or centered on the Cobra Kai actors.” Sony Columbia Pictures has officially confirmed a new Karate Kid picture for June 7, 2024, just days after the fifth season of Cobra Kai was published on Netflix.

At this time, no information regarding the narrative, actors, or crew is available. Because of the date of the announcement, many fans on social media speculated on whether the film is related to the renowned Netflix program. Fans may be a little upset now that Jon Hurwitz has confirmed that the two projects are unrelated. Several major events occurred during the fifth season of the renowned Netflix series. According to Netflix’s YouTube channel, the official season 5 summary is as follows:

“In the aftermath of the All Valley Tournament’s surprising results, Sensei Terry Silver is growing the Cobra Kai empire and attempting to make his “No Mercy” brand of karate the only game in town. With Kreese imprisoned and Johnny Lawrence focusing on fixing the harm he’s created, Daniel LaRusso must turn to an old acquaintance for assistance.

We saw Kreese in prison in the season finale, completely sad and despondent. Meanwhile, tensions increase when Dan, Johnny, and Chozen are almost killed in an accident. Chozen and Johnny then got into a fight with Mike, but Daniel intervened. The season closed with a surprising discovery about Kreese, teasing the next exciting episode of the series. The show’s significance and popularity have grown as the fifth season has gained considerable critical praise.
