Wax on again, Daniel-San.
Cobra Kai is a ten-episode series that will feature original stars Macchio, playing underdog Daniel LaRusso, and William Zabka as bully and rival fighter Johnny Lawrence.
They’re representing opposing dojos so the chances are we will see them throw down again. Awesome.
Cobra Kai was the subject of a bidding war that saw offers from Hulu, Amazon and Netflix. Subscription service YouTube Red eventually won out. Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment will produce the project.
The original Karate Kid was released in 1984 and went on to become a cult classic. The less said about the 2010 remake starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith the better.
The exciting news is tinged with a little sadness as we won’t get to see the late, great Pat Morita reprise his role as Mr. Miyagi.
You'll have to wait until 2018 for it to air but check out the original movie trailer to get you in the mood.
