Strike hard and strike fast: Season 5 of ‘Cobra Kai’ has a perfect Rotten Tomatoes rating

Season 5 of Cobra Kai is filled with cheesy one-liners, nostalgic ’80s rock, and high schoolers busting out advanced karate moves. The new season premiered on Friday and has already received a perfect rating from critics and audiences on Rotten Tomatoes.

All ten episodes of the fifth season, starring Ralph Macchio and William Zabka (who reprised their roles from the original “Karate Kid” films), were binge-watched on Netflix on September 9. Season 5 of “Cobra Kai” had a 100% Tomatometer score as of Friday, based on Rotten Tomatoes’ aggregation of 27 critic ratings, as well as a 96% audience score. Season 1 of “Cobra Kai” has 100% critics score on the site, with seasons 2 and 3 receiving 90% and S4 receiving 95%. (A caveat: If RT incorporates additional negative reviews, the critics score for Season 5 may fall.

At the end of Cobra Kai’s fourth season, a dark cloud hung over Los Angeles. Terry Silver, a snake in the grass, swept the leg of his Vietnam War buddy and Cobra Kai Karate co-founder John Kreese, landing him in jail for a crime he didn’t commit. Meanwhile, after losing the All Valley Under 18 Karate Tournament, Mr. Miyagi’s prized pupil Daniel LaRusso and Cobra Kai’s original bad boy Johnny Lawrence are forced to close their dojos.

About Season 5 of ‘Cobra Kai’

Nina Metz of the Chicago Tribune said viewers should “embrace the cheese,” and Nerd Reactor’s John Nguyen called Season 5 “crazy, bigger, and wild.” One audience member said the show transported him back to his childhood, providing viewers with an escape from today’s turmoil.

The show debuted on YouTube, where it ran for three seasons before ceasing production of original scripted programming, before being picked up by Netflix in 2020. Season 4 premiered on December 31, 2021, and it received over 120,000,000 million hours of viewing in its first week, according to Netflix.

Each season introduces new heroes and villains from the original Karate Kid trilogy, which debuted in theatres in 1984. The original, which has an 82% audience score and an 89% critics rating on Rotten Tomatoes, was praised by critics such as Robert Ebert, who had low expectations for the film.

In 1984, Ebert wrote, “I was completely wrong.” “The Karate Kid was one of 1984’s pleasant surprises: an exciting, sweet-tempered, heartwarming story featuring one of the most intriguing friendships in a long time.”
