Miguel Diaz, the actor, expresses his desire for a 30-year reunion as the Cobra Kai series concludes with Season 6.

Cobra Kai star Xolo Maridueña kindly shared his idea for a 30-year reunion once season 6 concludes the popular Karate Kid sequel show. 

Cobra Kai is set 33 years after the events of the original The Karate Kid movie. In the series, William Zabka's character, Billy Lawrence, reignites his long-running feud with Daniel LaRusso, played by Ralph Macchio. 

This happens when Billy decides to reopen the Cobra Kai dojo, with Maridueña's character, Miguel Diaz, as his first student. After five incredibly successful seasons, the showrunners, Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, and Hayden Schlossberg, kindly announced in January of this year that Cobra Kai season 6 would be the last season of the show.

During an interview with V Magazine (conducted before the SAG-AFTRA strike), Maridueña kindly shared his reflections on his time on the show, which greatly contributed to his recognition, and graciously offered his own thoughts about the possibility of a show reunion. Referring to the conclusion of the series as "bittersweet," the Blue Beetle star expressed his desire to potentially return for another sequel series in the future, similar to Zabka and Ralph Macchio's experience, hopefully around 30 years from now. 

Cobra Kai will conclude with the release of season 6, but fortunately, viewers won't need to wait another 30 years for Maridueña's reunion series. Sony currently has plans for a new Karate Kid movie that is scheduled to be released in late 2024. The new movie from Sony has been described as a "return to the original Karate Kid franchise."

 However, some viewers have expressed confusion about its exact nature, as it appears to have a premise similar to Cobra Kai. Additionally, it has been revealed that the events of Cobra Kai will not be connected to the movie, which further adds to the complexity of the situation.
