Cobra Kai recently wrapped up Season 5, and though Netflix has not renewed the fan-favorite for Season 6, they have shared an absurdly hilarious animated script created by an AI post the S5 finale.
The Karate Kid spinoff series, serving as the redemption stories for William Zabka’s Johnny Lawrence and other Cobra Kai antagonists, has garnered an immense amount of success on the streaming service. The show has gained positive reviews since its Season 1 premiere in May 2018 for its storytelling and actors’ performances.
The show has not only brought back classic characters like Zabka’s Johnny and Ralph Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso but also Sean Kanan’s Mike Barnes and Martin Kove’s Kreese.
And now that Season 5 has come to an end, Netflix partnered with Jimmy Kimmel’s Keaton Patti to generate a hilarious take on the series so far.
The Twitter handle Netflix is a Joke shared a four-minute video with a rendition of the story so far after Keaton Patti and Netflix had a bot watch all the Cobra Kai episodes and came up with this masterpiece. You can view the original video and tweet below:
The video has many funny bits, with Johnny flipping an actual bird and running into the arms of alcoholism, Sam and Robbie hugging huge femurs, and ridiculous haiku graffiti. The Cobra Kai dojo motto was also ridiculed as Miguel somehow kicked a wall to now have the words “Strike First, Strike Harp, No Merci” carved into it.
The absurd video was enjoyed by the show’s fans, some even calling it a great preview for Season 6, which of course, will be nothing like the joke of a video.
But still, the video has served its purpose to have people talk about Cobra Kai and prove its popularity to Netflix in getting the streamer to renew the series for Season 6.
No news has followed after the video’s release, but an update for Season 6 should be arriving soon from Netflix.
