“Rediscovering to the world the universe of ‘Karate Kid’ has been our humble honor. Doing ‘Cobra Kai’ allowed us to join the same sacred dojo once inhabited by the great Robert Mark Kamen, John Avildsen, Jerry Weintraub and all the incredible original cast members.

“It also allowed us to play sensei, expand on the original storylines and bring forth a new generation of underdogs. We never took this opportunity for granted,” they said.

The trio said they were happy to be able to end the series on “our terms, leaving the Valley at the time and place we always imagined”.

“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 tell more ‘Karate Kid’ stories with you all over the world. line. Because, as we all know, Cobra Kai never dies,” they concluded.

Cobra Kai is written and produced by Heald, Hurwitz and Schlossberg through their production company, Counterbalance Entertainment.

Will Smith, James Lassiter and Caleeb Pinkett are producing for Westbrook Entertainment with Susan Ekins in association with Sony Pictures Television. Macchio and Zabka are also executive producers.
