Netflix confirmed the start of the sixth, and final season, of “Cobra Kai” with a video with the cast shared through the streaming platform’s social networks.
The news comes after the show’s creator and writer, Jon Hurwitztook to X (ex-Twitter) to announce that writing on the season would pause until after the 2023 WGA strike ended.
The writers’ strike officially ended on September 27 after a tentative agreement was reached between the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. The SAG-AFTRA strike also ended on November 9 following a tentative agreement with the AMPTP.
Since then, film and television productions have been slowly resuming and returning to the stage, and many shows like “The Last of Us”, “Abbott Elementary” and “The Penguin” Max’s now pick up where they left off before the strike.
