The success of Cobra Kai, Youtube’s The Karate Kid digital series, was probably one of the biggest surprises of 2018. Filled with heart and a strong message about gaining strength from weakness, it’s a show that seems suitably targeted towards the current internet generation.
Ralph Macchio and William Zabka return once more to face off in their neverending battle both in and outside the ring. Season 2 also sees the return of Martin Kove’s Sensei John Kreese, who will probably steer Johnny in the wrong direction again.
If you loved the ’80s and The Karate Kid, I couldn’t recommend this show enough. It has everything you know and love about the franchise.
It’s 2019 and the world can do with more karate lessons. In the words of Johnny, “Don’t be a pussy!”
Daniel and Johnny 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?
