Much like the stealthy ninjas of feudal Japan, Netflix came out of nowhere with a sneak attack, but this time it’s not dealing a deathblow to any of its shows – it’s giving us a surprise trailer for Cobra Kai season 5.
And, despite being labeled as a date announcement trailer (which is usually light on new footage), this trailer gives us nearly two minutes of tantalizing material from the upcoming season.
Even better, Season 5 is coming even earlier than expected – while the last two seasons arrived around Christmas and New Years, this next season will arrive much earlier in the year on September 9, 2022.
So why go ahead? We wouldn’t be surprised if it had something to do with the service’s dwindling subscriber count – we can’t blame Netflix for wanting to remind people of a show they love it. is not being cancelled…
Anyway, you can check out the Cobra Kai Season 5 trailer below.

As seen in the Season 5 trailer, things only get worse as Cobra Kai announces plans to open multiple dojos throughout the Valley.
