Netflix has made the unexpected decision to pull the curtain on its original series Obliterated after just a single season.

As Variety has verified the information created by Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald of Cobra Kai fame, the comedy depicted a special forces unit.

Convinced they had averted a severe threat to Las Vegas, they celebrated with a wild party featuring alcohol, drugs, and revelry, only to realize that the bomb they thought they had disarmed was, in fact, a decoy.

Now inebriated and impaired, the team must navigate through their challenges, locate the genuine bomb, and embark on a mission to save the world.

Shelley Hennig, Nick Zano, Alyson Gorske, C. Thomas Howell, Eugene Kim, Paola Lázaro, and Amalia Yoo are featured in the cast.

Hurwitz, Schlossberg, and Heald served as executive producers for Obliterated alongside Dina Hillier of Counterbalance Entertainment.

The studio responsible for the production is Sony Pictures Television.

The announcement arrives following recent hints from Hurwitz and Heald about their return to the production of the sixth and concluding season of Cobra Kai.

Heald shared a photo of the cast and crew, including William Zabka, Ralph Macchio, Yuji Okumoto, Mary Mouser, Xolo Mariduena, Peyton List, and Tanner Buchanan, with the caption, “Once More into the fray. Into the last good fight…”

Netflix had previously disclosed in January 2023 that the Karate Kid spinoff would conclude with its upcoming season.

The creators of the show said at that time, “Reacquainting the world with ‘The Karate Kid’ universe has been our humble honor. Making ‘Cobra Kai’ has allowed us to join the same hallowed dojo once inhabited by the great Robert Mark Kamen, John Avildsen, Jerry Weintraub, and all the amazing original cast members. It has also enabled us to play sensei, expanding the original storylines and birthing a new generation of underdogs. We’ve never once taken this opportunity for granted.”
