Along with the announcement of the sixth and final season of the Netflix series Cobra Kai, executive producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg sent out a letter thanking fans and teasing them on the future of the Miyagiverse.
The letter, which was shared to Netflix’s site on Friday, notes that their day one goal has to been to the end series on their own terms, and that they can say they’ve achieved that. They also told fans to “strap in for the biggest season of Cobra Kai yet,” and to celebrate the fact that they’ve made it six seasons into the show.
Despite Cobra Kai also ending with its sixth season, the letter also teases what the future holds. In it, they say that the “Miyagiverse” has never been stronger, and that they hope to continue telling “more Karate Kid stories” in the future.
You can check out the letter in full below:
When Daniel LaRusso arrived in the Valley with his mother in 1984, little did he know that his life was about to be forever changed. The same went for three young kids from New Jersey who hadn’t yet met one another. Daniel’s journey from bullied teen to underdog hero became an indelible part of our childhoods, and something that we would always carry with us in our hearts.
Reacquainting the world with The Karate Kid universe has been our humble honor. Making Cobra Kai has allowed us to join the same hallowed dojo once inhabited by the great Robert Mark Kamen, John Avildsen, Jerry Weintraub, and all the amazing original cast members. It has also enabled us to play sensei, expanding the original storylines and birthing a new generation of underdogs. We’ve never once taken this opportunity for granted.
Our day one goal with Cobra Kai has always been to end it on our terms, leaving the Valley in the time and place we’ve always imagined. So it is with immense pride and thankfulness that we are 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 on the planet and we hope to be telling more Karate Kid stories with you down the line. Because as we all know, Cobra Kai Never Dies.
In the meantime, strap in for the BIGGEST SEASON OF COBRA KAI YET. And let today be a celebration of all that’s come, as well as all that’s still left to be told. We couldn’t do it without you.
We made it.
Strike First. Strike Hard. No Mercy.
– Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg
