With only a month to go before YouTube Originals’ Cobra Kai returns for its second season on April 24th, Jon Hurwitz (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle), Josh Heald (Hot Tub Time Machine), and Hayden Schlossberg (The Pact) are giving fans a sneak peek at what they can expect when the Karate Kid sequel series returns. From the looks of the video below, the series isn’t wasting any time picking up right where the freshman season left off.
As Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) readies the Miyagi-do dojo for students to counter Johnny Lawrence’s (William Zabka) Cobra Kai, Johnny has some matters from the tournament that still need to be settled. Johnny has no interest in seeing his dojo go the way of the old Cobra Kai and proving Daniel right – and a recently-revealed you-know-who.
Here’s a first-look at the second season of YouTube Originals’ Cobra Kai:
Season 2 brings fans back into the action with Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) after the shocking Season 1 cliffhanger featuring the return of John Kreese (Martin Kove). When a new rivalry between opposing dojos is born in the aftermath of Cobra Kai’s controversial win at the All Valley Championships, Daniel realizes his next countermove is to open his own karate training school called Miyagi-Do, in honor of his mentor Mr. Miyagi.
What was once a personal feud between Daniel and Johnny escalates beyond their differences to engulf their students, who as teenagers, are already challenged to figure out who they are and who they want to be. Which path will they follow – Cobra Kai or Miyagi-Do?
Joining Macchio, Zabka, and the rest of the returning cast for the second season are Peyton List (Bunk’d, Jessie), Paul Walter Hauser (Kingdom, BlacKkKlansman) and (as we saw in the season finale) original film star Martin Kove.
