The first full-length trailer for the upcoming Karate Kid follow-up series Cobra Kai has debuted, revealing the release date for the show. Cobra Kai will run for 10 episodes and premiere exclusively on YouTube Red on May 2.
The series will follow Johnny Lawrence’s (William Zabka) journey to redeem himself after his crippling defeat to Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) 30 years ago. Johnny’s life has fallen apart in the interim, rendering him a washed-up shadow of his former self. When he saves a teen from a group of bullies, though, Johnny is inspired to reopen the infamous Cobra Kai dojo and his luck takes a turn for the better.
The series will also reveal what came of the 1984 film’s protagonist, Daniel, and how the death of his mentor, Mr. Miyagi, threw his life into disarray. As Daniel and Johnny are slowly brought back together, their decades-old rivalry flares and the two just might have to sort it out the old-fashioned way.
Debuting on May 2 on YouTube Red, Cobra Kai stars Ralph Macchio as Daniel LaRusso, William Zabka as Johnny Lawrence, Courtney Henggeler as Amanda LaRusso, Xolo Maridueña as Miguel Diaz, Mary Mouser as Samantha LaRusso and Tanner Buchanan as Robby Keene.
