Following the success of Cobra Kai, a new Karate Kid film has been announced ...

Cobra Kai has proved to be one of Netflix's most popular series of all time.

The Karate Kid is a spin-off sequel series to the original 1984 film. Cobra Kai's popularity has now lead to an exciting announcement for Cobra Kai enthusiasts that a new Karate Kid film is in the works.

Sony Columbia Pictures has officially announced the new Karate Kid movie, which will be released on June 7, 2024. No actors, directors, or writers have been revealed at this time of writing. The only thing we know about it is that it is a return to the original Karate Kid franchise.

There have been five Karate Kid films so far, the first of which was released in 1984, with Pat Morita as Mr. Miyagi. This was followed by 1986's The Karate Kid Part II and 1989's The Karate Kid Part III. A fourth film in the series, The New Karate Kid, was released in 1994. Then, in 2010, a remake of the original film was made with Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan in the lead roles.

Cobra Kai started out as a YouTube Red original series in 2018, before moving to YouTube Premium in 2019 before moving on to streaming service Netflix for its third season in 2021. It has remained with Netflix since and is one of their most-watched programs.

Johnny Lawrence, played by William Zabka, defeated Ralph Macchio's Daniel LaRusso in the first film The Karate Kid. The show follows a middle-aged Johnny reopening the Cobra Kai karate dojo, reigniting his rivalry with Daniel.

Season 5 of Cobra Kai came to an end on a cliffhanger, but there has been no official word on a sixth season as yet.
