The Head Junkie in Charge, Jarrett Kruse, was a huge fan of The Karate Kid. Truth be told, so am I. So I am more than thrilled, as he would have been, to share the first footage from Cobra Kai. The series will screen exclusively on YouTube Red. William Zapka (Johnny Lawrence) and Ralph Macchio (Daniel LaRusso) will reprise their original roles.
It looks as if, despite Johnny's feeling at the beginning of Karate Kid Part II, he still has a score to settle with Daniel LaRusso.

Synopsis: Set thirty years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, the series focuses on Johnny Lawrence reopening the Cobra Kai dojo, which causes his rivalry with Daniel LaRusso to be reignited.
