Writers’ Strike for Fair Wages Halts Production of ‘Cobra Kai’ Season 6

Writers' Strike for Fair Wages Halts Production of 'Cobra Kai' Season 6

Well folks, it’s official: the writers’ strike has finally hit Hollywood, stopping the production of  “Cobra Kai” season 6. After weeks of unsuccessful negotiations, the Cobra Kai team has declared their support for the cause and will not be writing any further episodes of season 6 until a fair deal is reached.

Showrunner Jon Hurwitz announced on Twitter that the show’s Season 6 production is officially halted and that no writers will be present on set. Instead, the 14 screenwriters in the writers’ room will be holding their pencils in solidarity with their fellow writers. “These aren’t fun times,” Hurwitz wrote, “but they’re unfortunately necessary. The moment a fair deal is in place, we’ll get back to kicking asses.”

Of course this strike is a serious matter for the Writers Guild of America, which has been negotiating for better pay, improved working conditions and protection against the use of AI tools for the past four to six weeks.

The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, however, deemed some of their demands non-negotiable, which prompted the strike. But let’s be honest, the real concern for Cobra Kai fans is whether the delay will affect the show’s final season.

After all, Season 6 is set to be the last for the popular series, which follows up on the events of The Karate Kid. Ralph Macchio and William Zabka have reprised their iconic roles as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence to great success, with the show moving from YouTube to Netflix and gaining even more popularity among subscribers.

So, while we support the writers’ cause, we can’t help but hope they come to a quick resolution so we can see our favorite karate kids back in action.
