Cobra Kai’ has been one of the most talked about shows in recent years. The series is filled with enthralling content and has given a lot of memorable moments in the previous four seasons but the stakes are higher this time around and fans will get to see a high-octane season once again. It is highly unusual for the 'Cobra Kai' creators to break their New Year's releasing time ritual, this time they gifted the fans with season 5 before the holidays even started!

There is already a lot of tension that has been going on with the viewers as they still haven't shaken the feeling that Daniel (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny (William Zabka) might not be the best around, after all, which follows a deflating loss to 'Cobra Kai' at the All Valley tournament, it looks like the reign of Miyagi-Do has come to an end, and with it, the rise of Terry Silver (Thomas Ian Griffith) has begun. Perhaps even more surprising, it doesn't seem like Kreese (Martin Kove) will be along for the ride amidst this ongoing stress let's take a look at the new faces we will see in season 5 on Netflix!

As we know another ghost of 'Karate Kid's past will make its debut next season. New photos of the upcoming season reveal 'Karate Kid III' villain Mike Barnes (Sean Kanan) making a dramatic return. Remember the guy Silver hired to terrorize Daniel? Right, that one. Who knows where his allegiance lies this time but one thing's for sure, he seems ready to put up a fight or at least we hope so! Other returning characters like Chozen (Yuji Okumoto), Daniel's primary rival in 'The Karate Kid Part II,' will play a significant role next season. Just like how Silver shook things up for Cobra Kai and joined forces with Kreese, Chozen will be able to help Daniel restore Miyagi-Do to its former glory as seen in the teaser. After all, Daniel and Johnny could use some help right about now.

What you can expect more is a villainry ahead. The 'Cobra Kai' dojo tags formidable South Korean sensei Kim Da-Eun, played by new cast member Alicia Hannah-Kim, to team up with Silver. Dallas Dupree Young, who joined the show last season as Kenny Payne, levels up to a series regular. Well, considering his transformation from a nerdy underdog to a bitter bully, he's sure to stir things up next season as already previewed from the trailer.

Apart from all this, there is one more thing that you all ought to know even though most of the actors are staying quiet about season 5. Jacob Bertrand, who plays Hawk, did tell Entertainment Weekly that in addition to more fighting, we'll see a lot of "unlikely team-ups" in the Valley (maybe Kreese will reconcile with Johnny?). Based on the glimpse we got from the trailer, Chozen, Johnny and Daniel appear to join forces as Miguel, Robby, and even Daniel's son, Anthony LaRusso (Griffin Santopietro), are seen bowing in front of the senseis. Let's hope this season brings the fans more unexpected drama and a more gripping storyline!
