Netflix has revealed new photos of the fifth season of cobra kai exactly one month after its premiere set for September 9. The biggest surprise that comes with this recent update is the confirmed return of mike barnes (Sean Canaan), one of the antagonists of karate kid 3. With this cameo and the return of others, there is no doubt that the definitive war of dojos in All Valley, Calif.
The last we saw of the series was that Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) led the Cobra Kai boys to victory in the most important championship in the city, albeit with pitfalls. As the cruel sensei’s teachings spread throughout the county, Daniel Larusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) join forces with Chozen (Yūji Okumoto) to re-establish the legacy of Miyagi-Do Karate.
Also, the look shows the teenage students, including Miguel (Xolo Mariduena), Sam (Mary Mouser) and Robby (Tanner Buchanan), train very hard to face your next opponents. For his part, Tory (Peyton List) questions her own victory and is unhappy after beating Sam in the All Valley tournament. In order to become winners, Miguel and Robby will have to settle their differences over the validation they seek from a father figure, which in this case is Johnny.
