The end of Netflix’s hit series Cobra Kai is nowhere near according to creators Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald. However, the creatives behind the show have revealed that they have an endgame in sight, though they aren’t sure how long it will take to get there.
“We’ve always had a set endgame about where the story is going, but we said from the start that we didn’t know exactly how many seasons it would take to get there. We found out, even in season 1 when we were in the writer’s room , there were so many ideas that we had that just didn’t fit into those five hours of the first season, so they ended up being pushed to the next season.There are ideas that we discussed about the beginning of the show, which showed up in season 3 or will appear in season 4. And then there are ideas that just fall by the wayside. There’s no added pressure to renew the series. We’ve still got a blast to make it. There’s a lot more story to tell , in our minds.”
So fans can rest easy knowing that there’s plenty more Cobra Kai to come. Hurwitz continued: “We’ve just finished shooting Season 4 and we have a lot more that we’re really excited about in the future. So we can’t tell you exactly how many seasons we’ll have, but we know we’ll have every season. with enthusiasm and confidence, eventually we’ll talk to our friends at Sony and Netflix and say, “We think this is probably around the time we need to wind it down,” and hopefully she’ll give us that time to do it. do. We’ll see.”
If this wasn’t enough to ensure that the world of Cobra Kai will be around for quite some time to entertain and charm us all, Schlossberg revealed that there have been ongoing discussions about potential Karate Kid spin-offs, with the team eager to explore other characters’ backstories and perspectives in the same way they do. Johnny have Laurens.
“The show itself is a spin-off in a way. We take Johnny’s life and his point of view. It’s one of those things that we think about all the time, in a way. With each character you think about what their backstory is When Jon says we don’t know how many seasons are left of the show, part of it is that we think each character has a lot of story to tell. Is that something that would be part of the series? Cobra Kai story, or is it something where someone deserves their own story? These are all things we talk about. We love this universe and love the idea of playing with it. Anything is possible.”
Cobra Kai spin-offs have been mentioned before, with Schlossberg drawing comparisons to the acclaimed Breaking Bad and how it came about You better call Saul. “We hope we can really expand this whole Karate Kid universe and revive the fanbase so it’s a story we can keep telling,” explains Schlossberg. “We have an endgame for Cobra Kai, but we always compare it to our other favorite show, Breaking Bad, [and how] they can keep the story going with Better Call Saul and El Camino.” Could this lead to the Kreese spin-off that Schlossberg and the other creators mentioned earlier? Time will tell…
