Netflix has released a batch of first-look images for Season 5 of Cobra Kai featuring The Karate Kid Part III star Sean Kanan returning to the ‘Miyagi-Verse’ as Mike Barnes, and Alicia Hannah-Kim’s debut as South Korean sensei, Kim Da-Eun.
“As Terry Silver [Thomas Ian Griffith] calls upon some old friends to put the Valley in a stranglehold, Daniel and Johnny are going to need all the help they can get to stop Cobra Kai in its tracks,” teased executive producers Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg about the new season at Netflix’s Tudum on Tuesday.
Mike was a villain in the third Karate Kid film but foes have become friends in the past. For example, Chozen Toguchi (Yuji Okumoto) is now working with Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) to stop the bad guys. Would be a nice twist to see Mike ally with Daniel-son but everyone will have to wait and see when Season 5 premieres on September 9.
