Well that didn’t take long, did it? Not even a week after the premiere of its second season YouTube Red has already announced that they will be renewing their hit ‘Cobra Kai’ for a third season! Both Ralph Macchio and William Zambia will return as rivals Daniel Larusso and Johnny Lawrence, set to premiere next year.
Season 2 picked up following the shocking 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 (Macchio_ realizes his next countermove is to open his own karate training school called Miyagi-Do, in honor of his mentor Mr. Miyagi.
Cobra Kai is written and executive produced by Josh Heald (Hot Tub Time Machine), and Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold & Kumar, Blockers). Together, the trio conceived the new Karate Kid storyline that picks up decades after the original film.
Well keep you posted as more develops!
