When you heard that RALPH MACCHIO and WILLIAM ZABKA were returning for a “Karate Kid” web series called “Cobra Kai”, you thought it was too good to be true, didn’t you?
Well, it’s real . . . and it’s almost here. A trailer hit the web yesterday, and it looks like it’ll at least be a fun nostalgia trip, if nothing else.
The show is set 30 years after Daniel face-kicked Johnny into second place in the All Valley Karate Tournament. (Even though face-kicks were supposed to be illegal.)
Daniel has a family and runs a string of car dealerships. But Johnny is kind of down on his luck.
So he decides to re-open Cobra Kai, his karate dojo from back in the day. The trailer ends with Daniel and Johnny face-to-face, and Daniel saying, quote, “Johnny, you and I, this, we aren’t done.”
“Cobra Kai” debuts later this year on YouTube’s paid streaming service, YouTube Red. (Deadline)
