Keep reading to know the latest updates on Cobra Kai Season 5.
Season 5: Will Julie Pierce Return?
The show is known to reprise characters from the Karate Kid franchise. If the story of season 5 brings back a character from the franchise, the most concrete suggestion would be Julie Pierce. Moreover, Pierce would be ideal for introducing her new dojo.
Also, it will be interesting to see how she comes across Johnny, Daniel, John Kreese, and Terry. Pierce’s return can also give the fans a chance to discover Miyagi’s most outstanding Pupil. And finally, we would see a showdown between LaRusso and Pierce. However, Netflix has not revealed an official synopsis yet. And the probable plot of season 5 will depend on what happens in the fourth season.
Season 5: Who Will Be In The Cast?
The series is known to introduce new karate veterans each season. The upcoming fourth season will bring back the infamous Terry Silver from the Karate Kid 3. However, if they introduce a new character in Season 5, it can probably be Hilary Swank. Earlier, Swank showed interest in reprising her troubled teenage character, Julie Pierce, from The Next Karate Kid.
The Next Karate Kid featured more action stars like Micheal Ironside, Walter Gogins, and Chris Conrad, potential contenders to return for Season 5. The series will continue to feature lead actors like Johnny, Daniel, and John Kreese. However, it will be interesting to see if the friendly pact between Johnny and Daniel continues until season 5.
