The young cast of Cobra Kai season 5 expresses their excitement
While we saw Tory in season 4, winning the All-Valley Tournament championship, she also caught Terry Silver talking about a bribery deal with the referee. Now, in season 5 of the show, she is going to mentor someone. Tory, looking out for someone else and teaching another character, made Peyton choose to continue with the show, and the experience was an amazing one for the actor. Jacob agrees with her and shares his character arc.
He also says this season will be a lot different because it also explores a different side of Hawk that he never thought about. In this season, Hawk is going to start at the top, which is really humbling for the character. Ginnie shares that his character has received the gift of the ability to work with others. Because of this flaw of Demetri, he has been hurt a lot as he’s not easy to work with. But this season will be a little different from what you’re expecting.
Mary Mouser talks about the vastness of the Cobra Kai universe. However, it has been challenging for her character arc in season 5 of the show. She says that Sam keeps growing and Mary herself likes the different dynamics of her character, Samantha. She will work with strangers she hasn’t worked with before. This challenge will see Samantha in a different light this season.
And Miguel has been making some massive changes independently. Till now, whatever he had chosen or done, always benefited him and Johnny or his family and friends. Now, this season, we will see Miguel’s independent and mature side. This season, he will go through a learning phase that is much needed for Xolo’s character arc. “I think it’s an uphill battle for him,” says Xolo Maridueña about his character arc in this season.
