Nothing’s ever too late or too long in the dojo! An amazing re-installment of the Karate Kid movies, Cobra Kai is a sharp and dry comedy that keeps surpassing all expectations. While its last season delivered a dark and thrilling end to the franchise, it also opened the door to more stories. Every major character will have their own story to explore. Seemingly, season 5 will pick up the narrative exactly from where season 4 left it.
Notably, with less than three weeks remaining until the much-awaited season of Cobra Kai hits our screens, director-producer Jon Hurwitz levitates fans’ curiosities with yet another Q&A session on his Twitter handle. He talked about a lot of things, including the future of individual characters, final episodes, and more. One of his many hints at the season finale reminded us something about Stranger Things. No, Murray is not getting a spin-off yet. Here’s everything you need to know about the Stranger Things 4 finale parallel.
The Cobra Kai season 5 finale will have the longest episodes
Well, the entire world is aware of the Stranger Things 4 final episode. Yes, it did deliver one of the most epic endings to the season, but in doing so, chapter 9 of the fourth season ran for 2 hours 30 minutes straight. Sure, bringing together people from four corners of the world and taking down the gruesomest demon should take that much time. But it almost felt like a movie within itself.
And now, following its footsteps, we have yet another Netflix Original whose final episode will take this much of a long run. Yes, your guess is right! It is none other than Cobra Kai. In the Q&A session, a fan asked Hurwitz if he could talk about the episode length of season 5, and here’s what he said:
Episodes are similar lengths to Season 4, but I'm pretty sure this finale is our longest episode ever. Feels like a movie. We love it. #CobraKai #CobraKaiSeason5 https://t.co/8pxw1aMdOV

Just like Stranger Things, The season 5 finale of Cobra Kai, too, will have to conclude many stories altogether. Hence, we believe that the length will certainly do justice to come to a wholesome and petrifying conclusion.
What are your thoughts about it? Do you think such a long-season finale episode will be justified? Feel free to comment down below,
