|

Sony has introduced major updates to its theatrical releases, among which are arguably the biggest eyebrow-raising in a new game the Karate Kid The movie is scheduled to be released on June 7, 2024. Recently, Netflix released the fifth season of the franchise series Cobra Kai Earlier in September, after almost all the main characters were reintroduced from the movies, the last one was Karate Kid Part Three (1989) the stars Sean Kanaan (Mike Barnes) and Robin Lively (Jessica Andrews). The only other main star who didn’t appear in it Cobra Kai he is Next Karate Kid star Hilary Swank, who played Julie Pierce. So what could this mean? Just a guess… 2024 will put the series around the seventh season (assuming the sixth season starts in 2023). With talk of expanding the franchise world, this might be the perfect time to wrap up the sequel series and branch out into whatever sub-decisions are eventually announced. And for a string like Cobra KaiWrapping things up on the silver screen would add to the lively drama for which the series is known. Then again, maybe they could go the way of “The X-Files” and use a movie as a bridge between season six and (maybe the final?). Again, purely speculation but well worth the follow…
