Watch The Cobra Kai Season 2 Trailer

Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence are back and their rivalry is bigger than ever. Will Daniel’s new Miyagi-Do dojo have what it takes to beat Cobra Kai–or can Johnny keep the dream alive? 

The first season of the YouTube Premium series caught up with the characters from “Karate Kid” 34 years after LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) crane-kicked his bullying rival Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) in the face to win the All Valley Karate Championship. Decades later, Johnny gets the Cobra Kai dojo up and running again with star pupil Miguel (Xolo Mariduena), and LaRusso, still harboring ill feelings, starts training his own student, Robby (Tanner Buchanan) – whom he later learns is Johnny’s estranged teenage son. John Kreese, the evil Cobra Kai sensei played by Martin Kove in the original “Karate Kid” movies, showed up at the very end of the first season, surprising Johnny as well as viewers.

The new 10-episode season focuses on LaRusso opening his own Miyagi-Do school and passing on the wisdom of mentor Mr. Miyagi (the late Pat Morita) to a fledgling group that includes Robby and LaRusso’s daughter Samantha (Mary Mouser).

Watch The Cobra Kai Teaser Trailer

Johnny Lawrence and Daniel LaRusso aren’t the same people they were in high school— but their rivalry hasn’t changed one bit. The doors of Cobra Kai have reopened in this  teaser trailer for the Karate Kid sequel series, named after the infamous karate dojo.

“I just don’t know why you’d ever want to bring back Cobra Kai,” Ralph Macchio’s Daniel LaRusso tells his former high school bully, William Zabka’s Johnny Lawrence.

It’s been nearly 34 years since moviegoers saw these two face off at the All Valley Karate Tournament in 1984’s The Karate Kid. They met again on screen two years later with The Karate Kid Part II, and now Johnny is seeking redemption.

With Johnny’s life taking a turn for the worse, the first Cobra Kai teaser sees flashes of him reopening his old dojo stomping grounds. That doesn’t sit well with Daniel, who has since been leading a picture-perfect life as a family man and successful car dealer.

Cobra Kai will see Xolo Maridueña (Parenthood) as Miguel Diaz, a victim of high school bullies who’s taken under Johnny’s wing; Tanner Buchanan (Designated Survivor) as Johnny’s son, Robby Keene, who’s determined to prove himself to be nothing like his father; and guest-star Ed Asner as Johnny’s old-school stepfather, Sid Weinberg.

Courtney Henggeler (Mom) will play Daniel’s wife and business partner, Amanda, while Mary Mouser (Freakish) plays their firecracker daughter, Samantha.

Josh Heald (Hot Tub Time Machine) wrote this new story for Cobra Kai with Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold & Kumar). All three will executive produce the series with Susan Ekins, Will Smith, James Lassiter, and Caleeb Pinkett.

Hurwitz and Schlossberg will also direct much of Cobra Kai, which will debut later this year on YouTube Red. Check out the first-ever released footage of Cobra Kai, the new YouTube Red Original Series, coming soon.
