Cobra Kai is still a month from release on YouTube Red, but the streaming platform is not shy about the coming rematch between Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka). In fact, the series is predicated on the return of their long-buried rivalry as Johnny faces a mid-life crisis his teenaged self would never have imagined. But to get back some of what he lost, Johnny rebuilds the Cobra Kai dojo, much to Daniel’s dismay, and if this teaser is any indication, their conflict will once again be settled at the All-Valley Tournament. Though, this time, it will be their students fighting in the ring.
This series looks and sounds like it will be a lot of fun. I know that seems crazy considering how long its been since Daniel last appeared in The Karate Kid Part III, but from what I’ve seen, the show seems to know what it is doing.
Cobra Kai debuts May 2nd on YouTube Red.
