Netflix have released ‘The Karate Kid Legacy Continues’ trailer for the upcoming release of season 1 and 2 of Cobra Kai, whilst also including a tease for the series third season which will premiere in 2021.
Cobra Kai is set thirty-four years after the events of the original film which concluded in Daniel LaRusso defeating Johnny Lawrence in the 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament, we get a look in the daily lives of Johnny and Daniel. The first season saw Johnny Lawrence reopen the infamous Cobra Kai karate dojo, mentor young neighbour Miguel and reignite his rivalry with Daniel LaRusso. The second season sees Daniel open up Miyagi-Do Karate, creating a dojo not to show how to be a badass like Cobra Kai, but by showing others that there is a better way…balance. The rivalry between Johnny and Daniel now extends to their students, as Cobra Kai vs Miyagi-Do rivalry begins and leads down a course that could change their paths forever.
The trailer does a good job of not giving too much away in regards to how season 1 and 2 unfolds (though at one point I thought they were going to in regards to Season 2) and the tease for season 3 is definitely that, a tease. Is that Yuji Okumoto at the end? Is Chozen from The Karate Kid II coming into Cobra Kai? Time will tell in 2021.
The first two seasons of Cobra Kai stars William Zabka, Ralph Macchio, Martin Kove, Courtney Henggeler, Xolo Maridueña, Tanner Buchanan, Mary Mouser, Jacob Bertrand, Hannah Kepple, Nichole Brown, Griffin Santopietro, Vanessa Rubio, Gianni Decenzo, Peyton List and Paul Walter Hauser.
Cobra Kai season 1 and 2 will become available on the streaming service on the 28th August 2020.
