Cobra Kai season 6 is just around the corner, with the cast and crew currently deep into filming the final season and targeting a release at the end of 2024. One of the showrunners, Jon Hurwitz, took to Twitter yesterday to answer some of the burning questions people have for the final season; we’ve picked through the answers to bring you the most juicy pieces of info.

Hurwitz has been a champ throughout the series’ history when interacting with fans (as have all the showrunners, in fairness), with him taking to X (or Twitter) multiple times to do quickfire Q&As.

Let’s dive into his latest answers for his Q&A conducted late on March 18th, 2024:

The biggest piece of info from Hurwitz came in talking about how they’re going to be expanding the world of The Karate Kid with the final season; responding to a question about whether we can expect more lore about Kreese and Silver, Hurwitz said:

“Season 6 expands the Karate Kid/Cobra Kai universe more than the first 5 seasons combined. The world building has been truly exhilarating. Excited for everyone to see the diversity of scenes we’ve been filming episode to episode. We’re going to so many new places in the Miyagiverse.”

Teasing the upcoming fight scenes Hurwitz noted the following in addition to calling the series finale “memorable“:

“I won’t say how many episodes take place at the Sekai Taikai, but I will say our stunt team will be deserving of all the awards for the work they’re doing on Season 6. We’ve taken things up a notch.”

When asked about the upcoming soundtrack for the final season, Hurwitz teased:

“Season 6 will have its fair share of 80s music and not just metal. There’s a very non-Johnny song in an early season montage that I know my wife and daughters are going to love.”

Finally, regarding a release date, Hurwitz says discussions have been had but implies nothing is currently set in stone:

“Release date has been discussed, but not set in stone. Once that’s locked in, we’ll know more about the pace of announcements and trailers.”

Other tidbits from the Q&A:

  • Another Rocky reference was teased.
  • Talking about the release plans for the show, Hurwitz said he didn’t know what Netflix has planned for marketing but said, “I’d be surprised if we go out with a whimper.”
  • Speaking about hairstyles, Hurwitz said Xolo will be floppy-haired this season and that we’ll see an epic mohawk.

Finally, Hurwitz replied with a GIF after being asked if anyone takes a dump in a tuba:

In our full preview for the forthcoming final season of The Karate Kid spin-off series, we have much more on what’s to come. Also, just in case you missed it, my colleague got to talk to Gianni DeCenzo, who spoke about the forthcoming final season.

Filming continues for the new season through to the end of July 2024.
