Cobra Kai Season 5 Cast: Who’s New and Who’s Returning?



Cobra Kai Season 5 Cast: Who’s New and Who’s Returning?

It’s almost time for a new season of Cobra Kai! The karate dramedy, which serves as a sequel series to the iconic Karate Kid movies from the 1980s, takes place over three decades later, following Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence as fathers. A lot has happened since they fought in their dojos, but it almost feels like no time has passed once they get back into karate.

Cobra Kai season 5 debuts this Friday, Sept. 9, only on Netflix, and it won’t be one to miss! This time around, the threat of Terry Silver is real as he wants to expand Cobra Kai to more locations. Of course, Daniel will do everything in his power to stop this takeover from happening, but Silver’s a hard guy to defeat. On and off the karate mat.

While we wait for the 10 new episodes, let’s take a look at the Cobra Kai season 5 cast, both the new actors and the returning ones.

Cobra Kai season 5 cast: New actors

Sean Kanan as Mike Barnes

Sean Kanan is Cobra Kai‘s latest actor to reprise his role from the Karate Kid movie series. Fans of the films will remember him as Mike Barnes, who was branded karate’s bad boy. He appeared in The Karate Kid Part III (1989) after Terry Silver hired him to take down Daniel LaRusso. In the end, Daniel defeated Mike, and their feud is one of the many memorable ones. Expect Mike to be one of the new characters in Cobra Kai season 5!

Where have you seen him before? Apart from The Karate Kid Part III, you might recognize Kanan for his role as Deacon Sharpe in The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful. He’s also appeared in shows such as General Hospital, Desperate Housewives, and Sunset Beach.

Alicia Hannah-Kim as Kim Da-Eun

Alicia Hannah-Kim plays a brand-new character in the Karate Kid universe named Kim Da-Eun. According to a report from Deadline, this new character was enlisted by Silver and will help him in his plan to expand the Cobra Kai franchise. “Working with Silver can only mean one thing: Kim is fighting for the dark side,” the site writes. We’re excited to meet a new villain in season 5!

Where have you seen her before? Though Hannah-Kim has not appeared in Cobra Kai or the Karate Kid movies, you might recognize her from shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Minx, Alone Together, or General Hospital. It looks like she hasn’t had a starring role in a big show yet, so maybe Cobra Kai will change that. We’ll have to wait and see what her character does in season 5!

Cobra Kai season 5 cast: Returning actors

Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso

The character Daniel LaRusso is synonymous with the Karate Kid franchise, and Cobra Kai would not be the same show without him. Of course, we can expect actor Ralph Macchio to reprise his role in season 5. In addition to his most iconic role, viewers will recognize Macchio from shows like The Deuce and Ugly Betty, as well as movies such as The Outsiders and My Cousin Vinny.

What’s next for Daniel LaRusso in Cobra Kai? As teased at the end of Cobra Kai season 4, Daniel is enlisting the big guns in his fight against Silver and Kreese. He’s invited Chozen to Los Angeles, who will no doubt be a powerful asset for Miyagi-Do.

William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence

Just as important in Cobra Kai is Johnny Lawrence, played by William Zabka. Though they started as enemies, Johnny and Daniel have since learned how to work together (somewhat successfully). Zabka is most recognizable for his role in the Karate Kid franchise, but you’ve also seen him in movies like Hot Tub Time Machine, Back to School, and National Lampoon’s European Vacation. He also played Scott McCall in the 1980s show The Equalizer.

What’s next for Johnny Lawrence in Cobra Kai? Johnny and his son Robby finally make amends in Cobra Kai season 4, so we suspect their relationship to only grow in season 5. In the trailer, Johnny says he’s no longer a sensei, focusing on his family this time around instead of karate. But the threat of Terry Silver will likely be enough for him to team up with Daniel once more.

Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz

Behind Daniel and Johnny in Cobra Kai, Miguel Diaz is one of the most important characters. The actor who plays him, Xolo Maridueña, will reprise his role in season 5 despite Miguel heading to Mexico at the end of season 4. Miguel is in multiple scenes in the trailer, so we’ll expect him to return to Los Angeles pretty quickly. Apart from the Netflix Original, Maridueña has appeared in the shows Parenthood, Cleopatra in Space, Major Crimes, and others.

Next, Maridueña will play the titular character in the superhero movie Blue Beetle from DC Films.

What’s next for Miguel Diaz in Cobra Kai? At the end of season 4, Miguel is lost. Johnny has been a father figure to him for a while, and now that Johnny is getting closer to Robby, Miguel isn’t sure what to do. He decides he’ll go seek out his own father who he’s never met.

We’re not sure if he gets to meet his dad in season 5, but we know based on the trailer that he’ll be at odds with Robby again. Despite Johnny wanting the two boys to get along, neither of them want to. We’ll see if they can ever be friends given their history.

Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso

Mary Mouser will be back in Cobra Kai season 5 as Daniel’s lovable daughter Samantha. If you think the actress looks familiar, you might’ve seen her in the movie Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. She’s also appeared in shows like Room 104, Freakish, Scandal, The Fosters, and NCIS.

What’s next for Sam in Cobra Kai? Sam has a lot of frustration built up after losing to Tory at the All Valley tournament at the end of season 4. Plus, her and Miguel are on the rocks despite both teens wanting to make things work. In season 5, we suspect her to be on her dad’s side in wanting to take Cobra Kai down, but will the pressure be too much for her? We’re hoping she and Miguel are together in the end! We love them as a couple.

Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene

He’s All That star Tanner Buchanan is confirmed to return as Robby Keene in Cobra Kai season 5. The actor has appeared in a number of popular TV shows over the years, including The Fosters, Fuller House, Girl Meets World, The Goldbergs, and Grey’s Anatomy. He’s set to star in an upcoming movie called How to Date Billy Walsh, alongside Heartstopper actor Sebastian Croft.

What’s next for Robby in Cobra Kai? Now that Robby and his dad Johnny are on better terms, we’re hoping they only get closer in season 5. That might be difficult, however, when Robby and Miguel are still feuding. Robby and Tory are an item at the end of season 4, so we’ll be curious to see if that lasts throughout the new season.

Martin Kove as John Kreese

One of the biggest villains from the franchise returned in Cobra Kai, and you can expect him to be in the fifth season as well! John Kreese is played by Martin Kove, who appeared in all three Karate Kid movies. Kove has a long list of acting credits to his name, and apart from the karate movies and show, you might’ve seen him in films like Death Race 2000 and Rambo: First Blood Part II.

What’s next for John Kreese on Cobra Kai? Kreese is behind bars in Cobra Kai season 5 after Silver set him up in the season 4 finale. We know Kreese is innocent, but it probably won’t be that easy to prove it with all the power that Silver has. As we’ve seen in the trailer, Kreese is causing havoc in prison, unsurprisingly. We’ll be curious to see how big his storyline is this time around.

Thomas Ian Griffith as Terry Silver

Though Thomas Ian Griffith only appeared in one Karate Kid movie as Terry Silver, he certainly made an impact. Where we’re at in Cobra Kai, he’s the worst villain we’ve seen yet, and it doesn’t seem like he has plans to slow down anytime soon. The actor has also been seen in movies such as Vampires, XxX, Excessive Force, along with shows like One Tree Hill and Another World.

What’s next for Terry Silver in Cobra Kai? As evidenced in the season 5 trailer, Silver is only doubling down on his plans to take over the valley, opening up multiple Cobra Kai locations and not letting anything or anyone stand in his way. Can Daniel stop him? We hope so!

Yuji Okumoto as Chozen Toguchi

Thankfully, Daniel will have more backup this time around. Yuji Okumoto, who played Chozen in the The Karate Kid Part II, came back to reprise his role in season 4. In the finale, we saw that Daniel had enlisted him to come to Los Angeles, likely to help in the fight against Cobra Kai. As for Okumoto, he’s also appeared in shows like Z Nation and The Mentalist, as well as movies such as Inception and Pearl Harbor.

What’s next for Chozen in Cobra Kai? Chozen’s got a new home in Los Angeles in season 5, though we don’t know how long he’ll stick around. He and Daniel are on really good terms now despite their past feud, so perhaps Chozen will befriend Johnny as well. We’re sure he’ll be able to provide a fresh perspective on Miyagi-Do.

Jacob Bertrand as Eli ‘Hawk’ Moskowitz

Cobra Kai wouldn’t be the same without Hawk! Jacob Bertrand will reprise his role as Eli ‘Hawk’ Moskowitz in the fifth season of the Netflix Original. The actor has been in plenty of other TV shows and movies, including Ready Player One, Kirby Buckets, iCarly, Community, and more.

What’s next for Hawk in Cobra Kai? Hawk has been in a steady relationship with Moon for a bit now, and we expect their relationship to be thriving in season 5. As for karate, he’s part of Miyagi-Do and will likely be just as passionate as the others about taking Cobra Kai down.

Peyton List as Tory Nichols

Tory Nichols is one of the best characters in Cobra Kai, so we’re happy to confirm that Peyton List will return in season 5! The actress has been in the business since she was young, appearing in movies like 27 Dresses, Remember Me, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, and Something Borrowed. More recently, she played famous serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the movie Aileen Wuornos: American Boogeywoman. She’s also been in a handful of Disney Channel titles.

What’s next for Tory Nichols in Cobra Kai? Tory will probably have the best storyline this time around as she struggles with the fact that she only won the All Valley because Silver cheated. Should she confess or keep it to herself? Tory always has a guard up, but that’s only because she’s been hurt in the past. She carries a lot of trauma and she only deserves the best! We’ll be rooting for her in season 5.

See a quick list of other actors who are set to return in Cobra Kai season 5:

  • Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso
  • Gianni DeCenzo as Demetri Alexopoulos
  • Vanessa Rubio as Carmen Diaz

Get To Know All of Meredith Hagner’s Hallmark Movies

Meredith Hagner has starred in two Hallmark movies.



Get To Know All of Meredith Hagner’s Hallmark Movies

Meredith Hagner is a well-known actress who has acted in almost 50 movies and TV shows to date. She is currently in the news after the release of her new movie Vacation Friends 2, which was released on August 25, 2023.

She got her big break on her debut TV show, As the World Turns, in 2008, where she played the character of Liberty Ciccone. She played the character until 2010, and at the time, she was already recognized as a promising actress.

She has often appeared in several movies and TV shows with different characters, roles, and genres and has even appeared in Christmas movies by Hallmark. So let’s delve into it.

Meredith Hagner All Hallmark Movies

Hagner has appeared in two Hallmark movies, and both of them are based on Christmas themes.

‘A Gift Wrapped Christmas’

Hagner acted in the famous Hallmark movie A Gift Wrapped Christmas, which was released in 2015. She plays the role of Gwen, who is a personal shopper. She recently met with her new client, Charlie, played by Travis Milne.

Charlie is a single father who is very workaholic, serious, and doesn’t care much about the holidays. He has a young son named Owen, played by Anthony Bolognese, whom he loves very much but doesn’t have much time for.

When Gwen sees Owen, she becomes friends with him but also finds out he is really sad because his father doesn’t like holidays and doesn’t spend more time with him.

She makes it her mission to get Charlie into a festive spirit and also make him spend more time with his son. Soon she becomes very close to Charlie and Owen and also finds out what she exactly wants for herself as a Christmas gift.

The other cast members of the movie are Beverly Mitchell as Stephanie, Dolores Drake as Pat, and Anna Van Hooft as Victoria. The film became quite popular among fans who are fond of love stories and got universal praise for being a clean family film.

However, it was not nominated or won any awards in any category. Despite that, audiences and critics praised the acting of lead actors Hagner and Bolognese.

‘My Christmas Love’

My Christmas Love is another Hallmark movie in which Hagner appeared as the lead actress. In the film, she plays the role of Cynthia, who has recently gone through a breakup after her boyfriend dumped her just before the holidays.

She is sad and depressed but has to go to her home for her sister’s wedding, and since she doesn’t have a boyfriend, she asks her friend Liam, played by Bobby Campo, to go with her.

However, when she arrives home, she starts receiving gifts each day for the rest of the twelve days, just like in her favorite movie, The 12 Days of Christmas. At first, she brushes aside the gifts, thinking they are from one of her exes.

However, as the day goes on, she becomes more intrigued and happy, and she becomes determined to find out who is making this amazing gesture. She even thinks someone who is going to such great lengths might truly love her.

Nevertheless, her search for the mystery lover turns out to be more hard work than she realized before, but she finds out that the person she was looking for was always right beside her.

Although My Christmas Love only received an average review, many fans and audiences loved her performance, and the movie was also praised as being a trademark Hallmark romantic comedy.

Other actors in the movie are Aaron O’Connell as Scott, Megan Park as Janet, and Gregory Harrison as Tom.

Hence, these are two Hallmark movies that Hagner has appeared in. Although both movies did average business at the box office, her reputation as an actress rose decently.

Meredith Hagner’s career: Movies and TV shows

Hagner started acting immediately after moving to New York, where she appeared in several commercials for Levi’s, Radio Shack, 3M, Acuvue, Truth, and Subway. She got in contact with an agent who offered her the role in the TV show.

At first, she hesitated to act in the TV show and waited for the movies, but ultimately decided to act in As the World Turns, which turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

Due to her performance, she was even nominated for the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series, which immediately made her one of the promising actresses to look forward to.

She never thought her debut project would turn out to be her immediate big break, after which she started receiving lots of movies and TV shows.

Immediately after leaving the TV show in 2010, she appeared in lots of movies like Going the Distance, Art Machine, Damsels in Distress, etc. Her big break-in movie only arrived in 2014 with the superhit movie Hits, where she played the role of Katelyn Stuben.

She appeared in a few more popular movies and TV shows like Set It Up, The Oath, Brightburn, Vacation Friends, Men at Work, Search Party, and Strangers. In 2023, fans got to see her reprise the role of Kyla in Vacation Friends 2.

She currently has two upcoming projects: one movie titled You’re Cordially Invited and one TV show titled Bad Monkey. In the TV series, she plays the lead role of Eve. The show is currently in production and is set to be released in late 2023 or early 2024.

Meredith Hagner’s early life, parents, and education

Meredith was born in New York City, but when she was young, her parents moved her to Houston, Texas. Her mother’s name is Karen Hagner, and her father’s name is Ronald Hagner.

Regarding her siblings, she has one sister, whose name is Kerry Hagner. She has not revealed any personal information or the profession of her mother, father, or sister.

She went to Chapel Hill High School for her higher studies, and during her time in high school, she developed an interest in acting. After that, she decided to attend the Boston Conservatory, where she learned acting for a brief period of time.

However, she was not able to complete her education as she started getting offers for acting and commercials, for which she had to move to New York.

Freddie Dennis’ Gay Rumors — Exploring His Sexuality, Partner, and Dating History

Freddie Dennis plays a gay character in ‘Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story.’



Freddie Dennis’ Gay Rumors — Exploring His Sexuality, Partner, and Dating History

Freddie Dennis is a talented actor who has recently been the talk of the town in the popular Netflix show Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. In the show, he plays the role of Reynolds, who is in love with another character, Young Brimsley.

Since Dennis played the role of the gay lover in the show, many fans were wondering if he was gay in real life, too. Furthermore, he has not revealed his sexuality to date, which has made his fans even more curious.

So, is he also gay in real life, and who is his partner? Let’s delve into the matter.

Freddie Dennis plays a young gay boy in ‘Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story’

In Queen Charlotte‘s TV show, Dennis plays the role of King George’s secretary, Reynolds, who falls in love with Queen Charlotte’s footman, Young Brimsley, played by actor Sam Clemmett.

The chemistry between the two actors is really amazing, so much so that fans actually believe they are gay and were even dating each other in real life.

Other than his romantic story, he is also equally loved for his loyalty to his king, and it takes a huge amount of pride to take care of his responsibilities. Still, it becomes more challenging when the episodes move forward, and even his loyalty comes under scrutiny.

Although he plays the role of supporting actor on the show, many fans and even the main character believe he is the heartbeat of the show.

There is no doubt that in the later seasons of the series, his character will undergo colossal development, and he will have an even more essential role in the series.

Freddie Dennis’ gay rumors and dating Corey Mylchreest

Dennis made history in the Bridgerton universe when he and actor Clemmett became the focus of queer love for the first time, as his characters Reynolds and Young Brimsley were revealed to be in a relationship.

According to the actors, their relationship was not included in the first script but was disclosed separately. Despite the challenge of the role, they were still confident and relished the honor of their characters.

Their on-screen chemistry was portrayed so well that fans were mesmerized by the acting. And as mentioned earlier, fans also believed that both Dennis and Clemmett were gay and were dating in real life.

Moreover, after the show’s lead actor, Corey Mylchreest, revealed that he and Dennis even lived together for a brief period, it further fueled the gay rumors.

However, the fact is that they were not dating and instead became very good friends during the filming of the show. They shared such a close bond that they decided to move in together, as it was easier for them to prepare for their roles as well.

Till now, there has been no concrete evidence of him being gay, as he has not revealed anything specific about his sexuality. Nonetheless, he has neither confirmed nor denied the rumors, and fans will still talk about and investigate the speculations.

But it has to be taken into consideration that unless he feels comfortable revealing his sexuality, everything else is just heresy and must not be taken as fact.

Does Freddie Dennis have a girlfriend/partner?

The fan’s rumors and interest in Dennis’s love life, sexuality, and girlfriend are at an all-time high, even though he likes to remain secretive on such personal matters. Some are convinced that he is gay and is dating one of the show’s co-stars, whereas others are not so sure.

Well, the fact is that he is in a relationship with a woman named Laura, who is a photographer. Almost a few months ago, she marked their second anniversary with the caption, “Happy 2nd,” to which he replied with a heart emoji.

He has shared a few photos with her during his early career days, but after becoming famous, he has started to be more careful about sharing his personal life on social media.

Although there is not much information on Laura, she has an Instagram account named green_popsi with 1217 followers and also runs a YouTube channel. Apart from their brief interaction on Instagram, there is not much recent news on the couple.

It is unclear whether they are still together, have married, or have been separated. To conclude, they have maintained privacy over their togetherness. As for Dennis’ dating history, there are little to no details about it.

Freddie Dennis’ meteoric rise to stardom

Dennis has been getting well-deserved recognition for his fine performance on the new Netflix show Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story. Given his impressive acting skills, many fans might find it surprising that this was the first major TV show or movie project he has ever acted in.

He was initially interested in acting but was too shy, so he thought he would never succeed. He also loved traveling, so he thought it would make sense to study geography, which he took as a major subject at the University of London.

However, he finally decided to try acting by enrolling himself in the Oxford University of Drama, from which he recently graduated. He found out the audition for the new Bridgerton show was going on, and at first, he auditioned for King George.

He is grateful that he didn’t get the role of King George, but while auditioning for the character of Reynolds, he had to prepare only one sentence: “What have you done now, Brimsley?”

At the time of selection, he was suffering from COVID, and he has revealed that he felt good for five minutes before going back to bed again.

Many fans and critics praise him for being a natural character, so it is no surprise that he acts like a veteran actor despite being a newcomer to the entertainment scene.

Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story on Netflix

After the massive hit of the Netflix show Bridgerton, the new show, which is a spin-off or prequel to the original, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, was created by producer and writer Shonda Rhimes.

The story mainly revolves around Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz’s rise and explains how she gained control of power in the late 18th century.

The series only has one season to date, which premiered on May 4, 2023. The show has only six episodes, but each of them is almost an hour long.

Some of the show’s main cast members are India Amarteifio, who plays young Queen Charlotte, and Corey Mylchreest, who plays young King George III. Freddie Dennis as Raynolds, Sam Clemmett as young Brimsley, and Adjoa Andoh as Agatha are recurring characters.

‘Mad Men’

Dr. Faye Miller in the TV show Mad Men stands out as one of the best roles Buono has ever played in her acting career. She portrays the role of a strategist working for a consumer research company.

Her character is an independent, intelligent, and confident woman who is determined to make a name for herself in the male-dominated company. She plays a very significant role in Don Draper’s professional and personal life and is the protagonist of the show.

Unlike most of her other characters, in the show, she has played the cold, calculated, highly skilled killing machine, a character that has certainly surprised her loyal fans, who have been following her career.

But during the future seasons of the shows, she showcases the moral dilemma, connects with the show’s protagonist, and even helps him defeat ‘The Samaritan’.
