‘Cobra Kai’ Season 6 Trailer Raises the Stakes: Everything We Know About Final Season (VIDEO)

Decades after the successful 1984 film The Karate Kid and its sequels, the television show Cobra Kai was released to critical acclaim. Now, the series is heading into its sixth and final season, set to kick off this July. The show began from Johnny’s (William Zabka) point of view after he decided to reopen the Cobra Kai karate dojo. The reopening sparked his rivalry with Daniel (Ralph Macchio). In Cobra Kai Season 6, their students prepare for their biggest challenge yet.

After a teaser in May, Netflix released the first full trailer for Cobra Kai Season 6 Part 1 on Monday, July 1 that shows the beginning of the end of the beloved action series. Here’s everything there is to know about the final season.

Netflix revealed a trailer for the new season (embedded above) showing Daniel, Johnny, and Chozen training for an epic showdown. In it, the students are finally all “on the same page” and are now “getting ready for whatever the world throws” at them. The main question is whether they’ll compete in the Sekai Taikai, the world championships of karate. Daniel is concerned that his and Johnny’s teaching methods are beginning to conflict, and the pressure is on as everyone tries to be the best they can be.

“Our strength is that we teach both styles equally. Don’t jeopardize that balance, man,” Daniel warns in the trailer, later adding that “we have no idea what we’re up against.” The stakes have certainly been raised for this group of fighters.
