We missed you, Cobra Kai. Thankfully, the YouTube Premium series is ready for its Season 2 return and things have never looked more intense for the Karate Kid sequel series. In the first trailer for the new season, which premieres on April 24, it’s clear that Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka) will likely never get over their venomous relationship.
The teaser reveals that Daniel is dedicating himself to taking down the Cobra Kai dojo by fully launching the rival Miyagi-Do, which allows him to pass on the lessons he learned from Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita) in the original Karate Kid film. What’s more, he’s offering his lessons for free in an attempt to undercut Johnny and Cobra Kai. “At Miyagi-Do, it’s not about the money,” he says. “It’s about the karate.”
Meanwhile, with Sensei Kreese (Martin Jove) back in the picture, it seems as though Johnny is embracing the dark side of Cobra Kai, as he teaches his students to be as ruthless as he once was. “Cobra Kai is about being badass,” he tells his students.
What remains to be seen is whether we’ll finally get to see Johnny and Daniel face-off once again. In the Season 1 finale, the two dojos went head-to-head, with Cobra Kai fighting dirty to take the victory. Still, we never saw Johnny and Daniel spar with each other, which one would assume has to happen at some point.
Regardless of whether it happens this season, fans won’t have to wait long to find out if the two will finally have it out. All Season 2 episodes of Cobra Kai arrive April 24 on YouTube Premium.
