A Sony executive is teasing some spin-off potential Cobra Kai after Netflix’s incoming departure. Deadline spoke to Katherine Pope, president of Sony Pictures TV Studios, about the beloved series. When it comes to shows that have managed to adapt to challenging environments in the streaming age, there is perhaps no better example than Cobra Kai. What started out as a YouTube Original has called multiple streamers home and maintained the fan base every step of the way. With Season 6 about to close the door to the current chapter, all eyes are on the future. Sony thinks the show could still hit hard with the right spinoff. (How interesting considering that Cobra Kai is a bit of a spin-off itself in some ways.) Check out what she had to say below!
“They have some ideas about expansion Cobra Kai and getting to Karate Kid’s legacy in a variety of ways. But yes, the movie is also a good example. It’s all of these,” Pope explained. “I think we’ve all learned that these worlds can co-exist and they can feel cohesive and additive, especially to the fans, and feel like big, big worlds that go on in a lot of ways. different levels, they don’t necessarily all exist in the same plane. The public is now so smart and accepting multiple IP levels, so the Cobra Kai universe lives on, that’s for sure.”
Saying Goodbye to Cobra Kai on Netflix
On social media, the creators wrote a letter to fans: “Our goal on day one with Cobra Kai has always been to end it on our terms and leave the Valley in the time and place we’ve always envisioned. We’re proud and gratitude to be able to announce that achievement. The upcoming season six will mark the conclusion of Cobra Kai.”
While this may be a bittersweet day for the fandom, the Miyagiverse has never been stronger. This fandom is the BEST in the world and we hope to share more Karate Kid stories with you in the future. Because as we all know, Cobra Kai Never Dies. In the meantime, brace yourself for the BIGGEST SEASON OF COBRA KAI EVER. And let today be a celebration of all that has come, as well as all that is yet to be told. We wouldn’t be without it “We can do you. We made it. Strike first. Strike hard. No mercy.”
