Cobra Kai, the series continuation of the iconic Karate Kid films, begins tomorrow on Netflix after YouTube signalled an exit from scripted drama.
Under the terms of the deal, the first two seasons are due on Netflix this year, with a new third season to follow.
Ralph Macchio and William Zabka reprise their roles in the series along with Martin Kove as sensei John Kreese.
Cobra Kai takes place 30 years after the events of the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, where a now successful Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) struggles to maintain balance in his life without the guidance of Mr. Miyagi, and must face his previous adversary, down-and-out Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), who seeks redemption by reopening the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo.
Friday August 28 on Netflix.
