New seasons are under way for two of Netflix's biggest shows

New seasons are under way for two of Netflix's biggest shows

Crews are currently shooting for both series

Filming is finally under way for two of Netflix's best and favourite shows, with one of them embarking on their final ever outing of the series.

There were major delays towards the end of 2023 due to the SAG-AFTRA strike that ground Hollywood to a halt from July to November, with writers and actors wanting more better pay and improved contracts.

Thankfully an agreement worth more than $1 billion was reached that saw better terms secured and work start up again.

It meant 2024 has started with a bang, with countless movies and TV shows trying to make up for lost time and try and claw back pencilled in release dates as best they can.

This week, two more series have had cameras rolling for the first time on their next outings.

But it'll be the last time one of them ever shoots a new season.

Cobra Kai is returning to Netflix for one final season; it's sixth in total.

Over on Rotten Tomatoes it holds a 94 percent rating with critics and 92 percent with audiences, so the hype definitely matches the product.

A direct sequel to the iconic original The Karate Kid film, it sees Ralph Macchio reprise his original character of Daniel LaRusso. William Zabka also returns as Johnny Lawrence.

It sees the two face off in another martial-arts rivalry; now some 40 years after the original film.

See the trailer for season six below:

Jon Hurwitz, who brought the Karate Kid back in the series, took to X - formerly Twitter - to say: "The gang's all here!

"Get ready for the biggest season yet! Let's go!"

The video accompanying Hurwitz's post tells fans he'll 'see them in the dojo', which is bound to excite those ready for the final outing.

Fans will be hoping the sixth outing of Cobra Kai will be released sooner rather than later. No release date is on the cards yet due to the impact of the strikes.

The second of the two top shows filming this week is The Night Agent.

This debuted back in March 2023 on Netflix and was the third most-watched debuting show on the streaming platform in its first four days.

Almost immediately, a second season was commissioned.

The Night Agent is a crime thriller, starring Gabriel Basso as an entry-level FBI agent called Peter Sutherland.

He works his days in the basement of the White House. His job? Manning a phone that never rings.

That is until it does, seeing Sutherland uncover a conspiracy going right to the Oval Office itself.

Netflix confirmed filming was under way on its Instagram channel with a photo of Basso holding a clapperboard for episode one of season two in what is thought to be Thailand.

On season two, show-runner Shawn Ryan said: "To see the tremendous reaction to the show has been a great joy and is a credit to our cast, our writers, our directors, our crew and our partners at Sony Pictures Television and Netflix.

"We couldn't be any prouder or more excited to get cracking on season two to share the further adventures of Night Action with our newfound fans."

Like Cobra Kai we've no release date for season two but it is hoped to drop some time in 2024.
