As Season 6 of Cobra Kai concludes, actor Miguel Diaz expresses his desire for a 30-year reunion.
Actor Xolo Mariduea, who plays Miguel Diaz, proposes a 30-year reunion as the final episode of Cobra Kai, the popular Karate Kid sequel series.
Xolo Mariduea, like his co-stars William Zabka and Ralph Macchio, is looking forward to a Cobra Kai reunion in 30 years.
Mariduea calls the ending of the show “bittersweet” and expresses appreciation for the six seasons they were given.
The sixth season of Cobra Kai will be the last, but Sony has said that they will release a new Karate Kid film in late 2024. After the conclusion of season 6 of the successful Karate Kid sequel series, star Xolo Mariduea proposed the concept of a 30-year reunion for the cast of Cobra Kai. Cobra Kai is set 33 years after the events of the first The Karate Kid film and features William Zabka as Billy Lawrence, who renews his rivalry with Ralph Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso when he reopens the Cobra Kai dojo with Mariduea’s Miguel Diaz as his first student. In January of this year, creators Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg revealed that season 6 of Cobra Kai would be the series’ final season.
Mariduea discussed his experience on the show that made him a household star and shared his thoughts on a possible reunion with V Magazine (during an interview that took place before the SAG-AFTRA strike). The Blue Beetle star has said that while the conclusion of the show is “bittersweet,” he wants to be invited back for a third season in 30 years, just like Zabka and Ralph Macchio were. Read his thoughts below:
The feeling is mixed. Undeniably, yes. Really, I did mature alongside the cast. Just as my time with these guys in high school was formative for me, so too were those years for them. All I can do is wish for another opportunity to collaborate with them. It seems to me that the festivities are drawing to a close. There’s a sense of closure in the air, especially since this is the last season to be filmed. It’s good and helpful when plotting out a story that we can decide when the show should end. That was an incredible blessing for us. When I say that, I think I can safely assume I speak for everyone. That we’ve made it this far, through six seasons, is beyond incredible. I really wish that in 30 years we could get back together and make a Cobra or a Kai v2. Those dudes are the best.
